This technique is simple, quick to perform, and produces a rigid block against posterior relapse of the advanced frontal bar in surgery for bicoronal synostosis. This stability is achieved without the need to place a bone graft across the craniectomy site in small infants with rapidly expanding brains. Finer and fewer interosseous wires are required, decreasing the chance of transcutaneous palpation, and this principle can be incorporated into most osteotomy patterns around the orbits.
