Laboratory Studies

Laboratory tests are not usually required, except for those routinely performed prior to surgery.


Imaging Studies

Imaging studies are not routinely required, although they may be beneficial for patients with certain conditions (eg, craniosynostosis, suspected abnormalities of the pulley systems). Repeat surgeries can be guided by the ultrasonic location of muscle insertions.
