01/01/1985 - "The extent of age dependency is diverse in various kinds of traits: 100.0% of hypostoses, 90.0% of hyperostoses, 50.0% of sutural and fontanel ossicles as well as additional and irregular sutures and only 30.0% of various openings are age related. "
05/01/2001 - "Qualitative histological examination revealed that at 84 days of age rabbits with suture and dura allografts had patent coronal sutures, suture-only allografts had fused coronal sutures with extensive endosteal hyperostosis, dura mater-only allografts had some new bone in the suturectomy site that resembled rudimentary osteogenic fronts, and suturectomy controls had extensive endosteal bone formation and resynostosis of the suturectomy site. "
10/01/1984 - "After cessation of treatment, cortical hyperostosis in the long bones remains, whereas the widening of the skull sutures regresses completely."
09/01/1996 - "Findings demonstrate that coronal suture synostosis in the congenital rabbit model (1) begins early during suture morphogenesis (before 25 days of gestation); (2) consistently radiates from a single focus corresponding to a normal interdigitating region (i.e., a high-tension environment); (3) varies in onset and rate as evidenced by low R2 value between age and extent of bony bridging; and (4) is the result of early hyperostosis of the osteogenic fronts and sutural agenesis. "
11/01/1991 - "In our patient radiographic features were spinal hyperostosis, but with syndesmophytes, chondrocalcinosis of peripheral joints and intervertebral discs, calcific periarthritis and premature closure of skull sutures. "
