Craniofacial abnormalities are congenital musculoskeletal disorders which primarily affect the cranium and facial bones. In this book, the authors present current research in the study of the causes, types and surgical/treatment options for craniofacial disorders. Topics include the etiopathogenesis, classification and treatment of temporomandibular joint disorders; paradigm shifts in pre-surgical orthopaedics for infants with oral clefts; hearing loss in children with craniofacial anomalies; strabismus in craniosynostosis; and the orofacial features and treatment considerations of Cri du Chat Syndrome.
