Abstract

Craniosynostosis is a medical condition caused by the early fusion of the cranial joint. The finite element method (FEM) is a computational technique that can answer a variety of “what if” questions in relation to the biomechanics of this condition. The aim of this study was to review the current literature that has used FEM to investigate the biomechanics of any aspect of craniosynostosis, being its development or its reconstruction. This review highlights that a relatively small number of studies (n = 10) has used FEM to investigate the biomechanics of craniosynostosis. Current studies set a good foundation for the future to take advantage of this method and optimize reconstruction of various forms of craniosynostosis.
