Background: Multidirectional cranial distraction osteogenesis (MCDO) is a procedure of ours developed earlier for treating craniosynostosis. However, the numerous bone flaps led to prolonged operative time and occasional bone detachment from dura. We have since simplified the osteotomy design. In treating sagittal synostosis, required bone flaps have been reduced to 11 (from ~20). Methods: In a 2-year period (2014-2015), 5 boys with sagittal synostosis underwent MCDO using our simplified and fixed-form osteotomy...

In this review, we discuss in detail our current procedure for treating craniosynostosis using multidirectional cranial distraction osteogenesis (MCDO). The MCDO method allows all phenotypes of skull deformity to be reshaped by distraction osteogenesis, except in patients who are 5 months of age or younger and patients with posterior cranial vault problems. We report the results of clinical data of 36 children with craniosynostosis who underwent MCDO between 2005 and 2014 in our institute. This method has the following benefits, such as a high flexibility of reshaping, shorter treatment period and less invasive secondary intervention...

OBJECTIVE: To investigate pharmacologic features such as mean critical duration until onset of medication-overuse headache (MOH) (MCDO), mean critical monthly intake frequencies (MCMIF), and mean critical monthly dosages (MCMD) as well as specific clinical features of MOH after overuse of different acute headache drugs, with a focus on newly approved triptans. METHODS: In a prospective study 98 patients with MOH according to International Headache Society (IHS) criteria underwent standardized inpatient withdrawal from their medication...

How best to integrate cognitive learning and behavioral skills in health administration education has been a concern of both academics and practitioners for many years. Charged with the education of health care administrators, graduate programs are expected to produce persons who are both knowledgeable about the field in which they plan to be employed and skilled in carrying out the many tasks associated with successful performance in their future roles. This article describes the theoretical basis and design of the management and career development offering (MCDO) of Widener University's Graduate Program in Health and Medical Services Administration, the key objectives of which are to integrate cognitive learning with practical experience and to provide a mechanism for the development of needed professional skills in a low-risk academic atmosphere...
