Pierre Robin Syndrome: Mandibular Growth During the First Year of Life.
Ann Plast Surg 42: 154-157, 1999
A new jaw index (Alveolar Overjet x Maxillary Arch/Mandibular Arch) is used to define micrognathia. 7 patients were studied with this index and compared with 100 normal newborns.
It was concluded mandible growth with syndrome is proportionate to mandible growth with normal children at 6 and 12 months. This fact can be of assurance to the parents.
