Current primary cleft nose correction techniques are associated with a significant rate of long term alar collapse. The nasal lining on the cleft side has been observed to be distorted and deficient. Nasal endoscopy was used to map the two dimensional topogra- phy of the anterior nasal airway lining in a normal and patient with unilateral cleft lip.
Sepsis results in intense disturbances in homoeostasis and is responsible for considerable morbidity and mortality in early infancy. Owing to insufficiency on part of infant to develop adequate inflammatory response to localize the infection, they usually progress to disseminated systemic infection, pneumonia and/or meningitis.
We wish to highlight our experience of the endoscopic assisted craniosynostosis technique in the context of a developing healthcare system. In developing countries, internet penetration is increasing and parents are using the internet to research latest technical advances to seek treatment early.

Craniosynostosis is a congenital pathological condition resulting from premature fusion of sutures of the cranial vault and leads to an abnormal head shape with a significant risk of raised intracranial pressure.
There is conflicting evidence on the role of raised inflammatory markers in acute ureteric colic with regards to need for intervention after discharge with conservative management.
There is a severe lack of formally trained craniofacial surgeons in India, a country with an approximate population of 1.3 billion. Most craniofacial surgery centres are located in teaching medical hospitals/institutions.
Three-dimensional (3D) printing (additive manufacturing, rapid prototyping) is a technology that has attracted the attention of craniofacial surgeons to gain perfection in analysis, planning and execution of complex surgical challenges.
