Cleft lip/palate is a facial anomaly caused by an abnormal developmental process. It is also the most common congenital anomaly. Orthognathic surgery is required in 25% of patients with cleft lip and palate for the correction of dentofacial deformity. There are various complications that can occur after orthognathic surgery. Complications that can occur during surgery include bleeding, improper fracture, and injuries to the inferior alveolar nerve (IAN) and lingual nerve. Meanwhile, postoperative complications include hemorrhage, edema, pain, infection, and delayed union or nonunion. This study retrospectively examines the complications that occurred after the orthognathic surgery in cleft lip/palate patients at Pusan National University Dental Hospital.

This study aimed to determine the electrical activity of masseter and anterior temporal muscles in patients with unilateral cleft lip and palate (CLP) and compare it with healthy volunteers. The study...
Various factors can influence outcomes in cleft palate care. This study sought to determine the impact of race on admissions, hospital costs, and short-term complications in cleft palate repair.
To assess the impact of cleft severity and timing of hard palate repair on palatal dimensions in unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP) children.
Cleft lip and palate patients normally present with a sunken face due to collapse in the middle part of the face and inability of the upper and lower teeth to meet during chewing. This sit...
This trial is a randomised controlled trial with a parallel design taking place in centres across the UK, Scandinavia and Brazil. 650 infants with a diagnosis of isolated cleft palate who...
This is a pilot study to determine if an audit and feedback intervention decreases complication rates after cleft palate surgery.
To determine if providing a written document in addition to the standard oral discussion of surgical risks improves risk recall for the parents/guardians of a child seen in consultation fo...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether secondary (revision) surgery to the lip in patients with cleft lip and palate is effective in improving lip function and appearance.
Surgery performed to repair or correct the skeletal anomalies of the jaw and its associated dental and facial structures (e.g. CLEFT PALATE).
A surgical specialty concerned with correcting conditions related to malposition of the jawbones and other related MAXILLOFACIAL ABNORMALITIES (e.g., CLEFT PALATE; RETROGNATHISM).
Complications that affect patients during surgery. They may or may not be associated with the disease for which the surgery is done, or within the same surgical procedure.
Pathologic processes that affect patients after a surgical procedure. They may or may not be related to the disease for which the surgery was done, and they may or may not be direct results of the surgery.
An autosomal recessive disorder characterized by brachygnathia and cleft palate, often associated with glossoptosis, backward and upward displacement of the larynx, and angulation of the manubrium sterni. Cleft palate makes sucking and swallowing difficult, permitting easy access of fluids into the larynx. It may appear in several syndromes or as an isolated hypoplasia. (Dorland, 27th ed)
Surgery is a technology consisting of a physical intervention on tissues. All forms of surgery are considered invasive procedures; so-called "noninvasive surgery" usually refers to an excision that does not penetrate the structure being exci...
