Sagittal Craniosynostosis, 7 Months


SKU: DCP-CRANIO-SECS-01 Category: Tags: ,


This 3D-printed anatomical model of the skull with sagittal craniosynostosis provides a realistic representation of the skull, allowing for enhanced understanding of the anatomy of this condition.

The model is a great tool for medical professionals, students, and educators to use in studying and teaching about craniosynostosis. It is perfect for use in anatomy classes, medical school, or in a clinical setting. With the model, medical professionals can demonstrate and explain the anatomy of the skull and the effects of craniosynostosis to their students or patients.

Additionally, the model is life-sized and incorporates realistic detail, owing to its creation from CT segmentation. The skull model is split along the coronal plane with magnets connecting the two halves. This allows for close examination of the superficial and interior features of the skull.

The model is an essential resource for any medical professional or student studying this condition.


Craniosynostosis is a birth defect in which one or more sutures of the baby’s skull fuse too early. Because of this fusing, brain growth is limited and slowed. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that 1 in 2,500 babies are born with craniosynostosis in the US. The type of craniosynostosis depends on the fused suture(s). This model represents the skull of a 7 to 8-month-old sagittal craniosynostosis patient. Out of the five types of craniosynostosis, sagittal is the most common.
