OBJECTIVE:   To examine the time trends and determinants of palatal fistula in children with different types of cleft at British Columbia's Children's Hospital between 1995 and 2012. METHODS:   A total of 558 medical charts of nonsyndromic patients with cleft lip and palate were eligible for the chart review. The occurrence of primary palatal fistula was assessed at any time throughout the patient's total observation period. Three types of clefts were recorded: unilateral cleft lip and palate (ULCLP), bilateral cleft lip and palate (BLCLP), and isolated cleft palate (ICP)...

Oculo-auriculo-vertebral spectrum and frontonasal dysplasia are two well-known examples of dysmorphology syndromes. Oculoauriculofrontonasal syndrome (OAFNS) is a clinical entity involving the characteristics of both OAVS and FND and is thought to be a result of the abnormal development of structures in the first and the second branchial arches, including the abnormal morphogenesis of maxillary processes. Herein we report a case of OAFNS with cliteral hypertrophy, premaxillary teeth, and inguinal hernia, features not previously reported in the literature...

OBJECTIVE:   This clinical report is the first literature report exploring the issues of an absent epiglottis in children diagnosed with Nager syndrome. Nager syndrome has previously been described in children with Pierre Robin sequence and other syndromes. CONCLUSION:   The function of the epiglottis and its contribution to swallowing has always been debated. In this article and from our literature review, we felt that absent epiglottis possibly contributed to the aspiration risk and may partly explain the long-term feeding issues in these children despite corrective surgeries...

For the first time it was demonstrated that an osteoinductive calcium phosphate-based putty is effective in the restoration of complex maxillofacial defects. In these defects, adequate mechanical confinement by multiple bony walls and osteoconduction from multiple surfaces are usually lacking. This study compares the efficacy of a microstructured beta-tricalcium phosphate (β-TCP) putty with autologous bone for the repair of alveolar cleft defects. A total of 10 Dutch milk goats were operated on in a split-mouth study design in which two-wall bony alveolar clefts were created and successively repaired with autologous bone (the gold standard) at one side and β-TCP putty at the other...

OBJECTIVE:   This study compares the early speech and language development of children with cleft palate with or without cleft lip who were adopted internationally with children born in the United States. DESIGN:   Prospective longitudinal description of early speech and language development between 18 and 36 months of age. PARTICIPANTS:   This study compares four children (age range = 19 to 38 months) with cleft palate with or without cleft lip who were adopted internationally with four children (age range = 19 to 38 months) with cleft palate with or without cleft lip who were born in the United States, matched for age, gender, and cleft type across three time points over 10 to 12 months...

Because of the high failure rates, large alveolar cleft defects cannot be successfully closed with bone grafting. Vega introduced the use of the hyrax screw for the closure of such defects by distraction osteogenesis. However, his technique was more invasive with a difficult adaptation of the appliance at the surgical table. To overcome these limitations, a completely tooth-borne trifocal distraction appliance was devised and placed after osteotomy in a 22-year-old repaired group 3 cleft patient who had a 15-mm alveolar defect on the right side...

Speech defects and facial appearance due to untreated cleft lip and/or palate in the elderly population have associated life-long impacts on the quality of life for these patients. Treatment and rehabilitation in this patient group can be extensive and the problems not easily corrected. We report the outcomes of surgical repair of cleft in a series of elderly patients with unrepaired cleft lip and/or palate. Our results confirm an improvement in speech, quality of life and aesthetic outcomes after surgical repair in these patients...

OBJECTIVE:   The purpose of this study was to identify the factors that influence the parent's choice of cleft team/surgeon. DESIGN:   A 10-question survey was used to elucidate factors that influenced parents in choosing their cleft surgeon. No identifiers of the origin of the study were used to improve parent objectivity. SETTING:   The setting for this study was an online survey. PATIENTS:   Participants in this study were the parents of children who were born with cleft lip and/or palate...

OBJECTIVE:   Accurate classification of cleft lip plays an important role in communication, treatment planning, and comparison of outcomes across centers. Although there is reasonable consensus in defining cleft types, the presence of Simonart's band can make classification challenging. Our objective was to survey cleft care providers to determine what all consider to be Simonart's band, how its presence effects cleft lip classification, and to provide recommendations for standardized nomenclature...

OBJECTIVE:   BoneCeramic can regenerate bone in alveolar defects, but it remains unknown whether it is feasible to move a tooth through BoneCeramic grafting sites. The objective of this study was to investigate three-dimensional real-time bone responses and micromechanical properties in the grafting sites during orthodontic tooth movement. METHODS:   Sixty 5-week-old rats were randomly assigned into three groups to receive BoneCeramic, natural bovine cancellous bone particles (Bio-Oss), and no graft, respectively, after the extraction of the left maxillary first molar...

BACKGROUND:   Blood loss during cleft palate surgery has been investigated in previous research, but there is no report regarding blood loss when performing Furlow's double opposing Z-plasty (DOZ). In the present study, we evaluated intraoperative blood loss in patients with cleft palate who underwent the DOZ procedure. MATERIALS AND METHODS:   Intraoperative blood loss was prospectively investigated in 59 patients undergoing palatoplasty with DOZ by a single surgeon between August 2012 and July 2013...

OBJECTIVE:   The objective of this study was to determine the three-dimensional midsagittal reference planes for unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP) patients that can be easily applied in a clinical setting. DESIGN:   This was a retrospective analysis. PATIENTS:   There were 35 UCLP patients (25 men, 10 women; 28.1 ± 6.9 years old) in this study. METHODS:   With landmark's three-dimensional coordinates obtained from cone-beam computed tomography, the symmetric midsagittal reference planes were calculated by applying the ordinary Procrustes superimposition method using the original and mirror images...

PROBLEM:   Children with cleft-related articulation disorders receive ineffectual or inappropriate speech therapy locally due to lack of training and a disconnect between the team and local speech-language pathologists. SOLUTION:   A collaborative care program that is billable for the team allows the local speech-language pathologist to earn continuing education units and facilitates effective local speech therapy. This program is the first of its kind, according to the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association Continuing Education Board for Speech Pathology...
