BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to assess speech outcomes and complication rate in nonsyndromic repaired cleft palate patients undergoing bilateral buccinator myomucosal flaps for velopharyngeal insufficiency management. METHODS: A prospective study of consecutive repaired cleft palate patients with velopharyngeal insufficiency who underwent bilateral buccinator myomucosal flaps was conducted. Three experienced evaluators performed a blinded perceptual speech evaluation (hypernasality, audible nasal emission, and intraoral pressure)...

PURPOSE: We hypothesized that 3-dimensional changes in the upper airway of patients with skeletal Class III malocclusion are different after mandibular setback and maxillary advancement (MSMA) compared with mandibular setback (MS) and that upper airway changes and the amount of jaw movement are correlated. PATIENTS AND METHODS: Skeletal Class III patients who underwent MS surgery or MSMA surgery were included in this retrospective cohort study. Cone beam computed tomography scans were acquired before and 3 months after surgery...

Importance: Patients with cleft palate and other causes of velopharyngeal insufficiency (VPI) suffer adverse effects on social interactions and communication. Measurement of these patient-reported outcomes is needed to help guide surgical and nonsurgical care. Objectives: To further validate the VPI Effects on Life Outcomes (VELO) instrument, measure the change in quality of life (QOL) after speech surgery, and test the association of change in speech with change in QOL...

Velopharyngeal insufficiency (VPI) represents an incomplete closure between the soft palate and the posterior pharyngeal wall. Its etiology can be anatomical (cleft palate), neurologic, or iatrogenic (after adenoidectomy). The evaluation of a VPI begins with a through speech and language assessment and can be complemented by instrumental investigations. VPI treatment relies on its early identification, followed by a specific speech therapy management. Surgery is performed in case of no improvement with speech therapy or in case of an anatomical defect not allowing the child to improve...

Neonatal hypocalcemia and congenital heart defects has been known as the first clinical manifestation of the chromosome 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22q11DS). However, because of its wide clinical spectrum, diagnosis of 22q11DS can be delayed in children without classic symptoms. We report the case of a girl with the history of imperforate anus but without neonatal hypocalcemia or major cardiac anomaly, who was diagnosed for 22q11DS at the age of 11 after the onset of overt hypocalcemia. She was born uneventfully from phenotypically normal Korean parents...

OBJECTIVE: To characterize the velopharyngeal closure patterns and speech performance among submucous cleft palate patients. METHODS: Patients with submucous cleft palate visiting the Department of Cleft Lip and Palate Surgery, West China Hospital of Stomatology, Sichuan University between 2008 and 2016 were reviewed. Outcomes of subjective speech evaluation including velopharyngeal function, consonant articulation, and objective nasopharyngeal endoscopy including the mobility of soft palate, pharyngeal walls were retrospectively analyzed...

Purpose: Video games provide a promising platform for rehabilitation of speech disorders. Although video games have been used to train speech perception in foreign language learners and have been proposed for aural rehabilitation, their use in speech therapy has been limited thus far. We present feasibility results from at-home use in a case series of children with velopharyngeal dysfunction (VPD) using an interactive video game that provided real-time biofeedback to facilitate appropriate nasalization...

BACKGROUND: Although many metrics for neurodevelopment in children with nonsyndromic craniosynostosis have been analyzed, few have directly examined early language acquisition and speech development. The authors characterized language acquisition and speech development in children with nonsyndromic craniosynostosis. METHODS: The authors' institutional database was queried for nonsyndromic craniosynostosis from 2000 to 2014. Patients with an identified syndrome were excluded...

PURPOSE: To assess the feasibility of acoustic rhinometry for the evaluation of velopharyngeal function in preschool children by detecting changes in nasal cavity volume (NV) and minimal cross-sectional area (MCSA) after palatoplasty. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Sixty-one preschool children with incomplete cleft palate who underwent Sommerlad palatoplasty were examined by acoustic rhinometry. MCSA, distance of the MCSA from the nostril (DMCA), NV, and nasopharyngeal volume (NPV) were measured...

Perceptual evaluation remains the gold-standard evaluation of cleft speech, but with any human interpretation, there can be bias. Eliminating bias, allowing comparison of speech data between units, is labor and time intensive. Globally, there is a shortage of listeners. We have developed a computer learning system to evaluate cleft speech. Our automated cleft speech evaluator interprets resonance and articulatory cleft speech errors. Speech recognition engines typically ignore voice characteristics and speech errors of the speaker, but in cleft speech evaluation, these features are paramount...

BACKGROUND: Disease-specific health-related quality of life (HRQOL) questionnaires provide the clinician with important information regarding the impact of the disease on functioning and well-being. For patients with velopharyngeal insufficiency (VPI), the VPI Effects on Life Outcomes (VELO) questionnaire was developed and validated in English by Skirko et al. (2012). However, a valid and reliable Dutch translation of this questionnaire is not available yet. METHODS: The English questionnaire was translated to Dutch following a forward-backward translation procedure...

INTRODUCTION: The majority of patients with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome suffer from velopharyngeal insufficiency (VPI). Patients with 22q11.2 deletion syndrome (22qDS) commonly present with a large central velopharyngeal gap in the setting of poor velar and pharyngeal wall motion. The posterior pharyngeal flap is considered the most effective technique to treat VPI in this complex patient group. This study aims to critically evaluate success rates of surgical management of VPI in 22qDS patients and discuss options for management of a failed posterior pharyngeal flap (PPF) with persistent VPI...

BACKGROUND: Management of velopharyngeal insufficiency (VPI) has traditionally involved surgical repair to improve speech. Posterior pharyngeal augmentation using injectable synthetic materials has been advocated. However, outcomes have been equivocal. More recently, autologous fat injection (AFI) has been advocated for correction of mild to moderate VPI. However, long-term efficacy and safety of this procedure remain unsettled. METHODS: A systematic review of the literature was performed...

The authors performed distraction osteogenesis using The Maxillary Distractor System (SYNTHES) to maxillary hypoplasia patient with cleft lip palate, and consequently improved the aesthetic complexion of the patient. Velopharyngeal insufficiency developed after bone elongation; the authors improved the insufficiency with conservative therapies such as articulatory training using the bulb attached palatal lift prosthesis. And then the authors got successful and accepted postoperative speech outcome.

Purpose: The objective was to determine velopharyngeal (VP) status of stop consonants and vowels produced by young children with repaired cleft palate (CP) and typically developing (TD) children from 12 to 18 months of age. Method: Nasal ram pressure (NRP) was monitored in 9 children (5 boys, 4 girls) with repaired CP with or without cleft lip and 9 TD children (5 boys, 4 girls) at 12, 14, and 18 months of age. VP status was categorized as open or closed for oral stops and vowels in three contexts-consonant-vowel syllables, vowel-consonant-vowel syllables, and isolated vowels-on the basis of the presence or absence of positive nasal ram pressure...
