Submucous cleft palate (SMCP) is a congenital condition related to abnormal muscle attachments within the soft palate. Even though hypernasality and nasal emission, the primary symptom of SMCP, have b...
The purpose of this study was to compare speech and breathing after sphincter pharyngoplasty and the Hogan pharyngeal flap in the management of cleft-related velopharyngeal insufficiency (VPI). We rev...

The effect of timing of cleft palate repair on speech development, velopharyngeal functioning, and facial growth remains unknown. The objective of this study is to determine the effective...
Failure of the SOFT PALATE to reach the posterior pharyngeal wall to close the opening between the oral and nasal cavities. Incomplete velopharyngeal closure is primarily related to surgeries (ADENOIDECTOMY; CLEFT PALATE) or an incompetent PALATOPHARYNGEAL SPHINCTER. It is characterized by hypernasal speech.
A group of muscles attached to the SOFT PALATE (or velum) and the PHARYNX. They include the superior constrictor, the PALATOPHARYNGEUS, the levator veli palatini muscle, and the muscularis uvulae. This sphincter is situated between the oral and nasal cavities. A competent velopharyngeal sphincter is essential for normal speech and swallowing.
The structure that forms the roof of the mouth. It consists of the anterior hard palate (PALATE, HARD) and the posterior soft palate (PALATE, SOFT).
Tumors or cancer of the PALATE, including those of the hard palate, soft palate and UVULA.
A hematopoietic growth factor which promotes proliferation and maturation of neutrophil granulocytes. Clinically it is effective in decreasing the incidence of febrile neutropenia in patients with non-myeloid malignancies receiving myelosuppressive therapy or in reducing the duration of neutropenia and neutropenia-related clinical sequelae in patients with non-myeloid malignancies undergoing myeloblastive chemotherapy followed by BMT. It has also been used in AIDS patients with CMV retinitis being treated with GANCICLOVIR. (Gelman CR, Rumack BH & Hess AJ (eds): DRUGDEX(R) System.
