Abstract

Craniosynostosis is a common congenital craniofacial deformity caused by premature ossification and closure of one or more cranial sutures. Craniosynostosis will not only affect the normal development of the skull, but also may cause a variety of complications, damage the nervous system, and cause long-term effects on the development of physical and mental health. Therefore, it is particularly important to provide new ideas for clinical treatment by studying the rehabilitation methods of craniosynostosis, and to improve the cure rate. To this end, this paper studies the early rehabilitation methods after craniosynostosis surgery and designs a comprehensive early rehabilitation process and corresponding comprehensive early rehabilitation measures after surgery. The comparative data also shows that after comprehensive early rehabilitation nursing measures, the duration of the postoperative swelling of sick children was reduced and the degree was significantly reduced, which alleviated the discomfort of sick children; and the time of sick children spent in ICU treatment and monitoring was reduced, and the separation time between sick children and their parents was shorten, is of great significance to the postoperative rehabilitation of craniosynostosis. In addition, the total cost of hospitalization was reduced accordingly, which greatly increased the satisfaction of patients.
