The closure of the alveolar cleft as part of cleft lip and palate deformities is a procedure that, to this date, still demands great efforts from plastic surgeons. The feasibility of periosteoplasty for reconstruction of the alveolar arcade as well as the use of electrical stimulation in order to increase osteoneogenesis have been proven in the past. The present study attempts to combine both procedures that have only been reported separately worldwide. The objective of this study is to increase the osteogenic capacity and hence, dental eruption.

The purpose of this study is to asses if taking 4 mg of folic acid per day at preconception and during the first three months of pregnancy decreases the risk of having a child with cleft l...
Cleft lip and palate are a significant component of morbid human birth defects in the developing world. By supplementing a high-risk group of women with folic acid (4.0 mg versus 0.4 mg) ...
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...
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...
Cleft lip and palate are a significant component of morbid human birth defects in the developing world. This study measures the impact of having a child born with a cleft lip on subsequen...
To explore factors related to completion of surgery recommendations among children with cleft lip and palate (CLP) or cleft palate only (CPO).
To present a 3-D standardized analysis of cleft dimensions.
Our objective is to describe the process of adapting a conceptual framework into a practical toolkit for one cleft team.
Management of a cleft of the lip and/or palate (CL/P) involves a multidisciplinary team approach lasting from birth to potentially postskeletal maturity. This condition is complex, with both medical a...
Living with a cleft condition involves many years of multidisciplinary therapy, treatment, and surgical intervention. This complex process may have both physical and psychosocial long-term impacts. Th...
Surgical procedure to add bone to the ALVEOLAR RIDGE in children born with a CLEFT LIP and a CLEFT PALATE.
Cortical malformations characterized by grey matter-lined cleft or cyst that extends from the EPENDYMA often to the PIA MATER outer surface. The grey matter that lines the cleft is often POLYMICROGYRIA. It is associated with developmental delay, motor disturbance and seizures.
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)
Rare congenital deformity syndrome characterized by a combination of five anomalies as a result of neural tube defect. The five anomalies are a midline supraumbilical abdominal wall defect (e.g., OMPHALOCELE), a lower STERNUM defect, a congenital intracardiac defect, an anterior DIAPHRAGM defect, and a diaphragmatic PERICARDIUM defect (e.g., PERICARDIAL EFFUSION). Variants with incomplete and variable combinations of the defects are known. ECTOPIA CORDIS; CLEFT LIP; and CLEFT PALATE are often associated with the syndrome.
Anterior midline brain, cranial, and facial malformations resulting from the failure of the embryonic prosencephalon to undergo segmentation and cleavage. Alobar prosencephaly is the most severe form and features anophthalmia; cyclopia; severe MENTAL RETARDATION; CLEFT LIP; CLEFT PALATE; SEIZURES; and microcephaly. Semilobar holoprosencepaly is characterized by hypotelorism, microphthalmia, coloboma, nasal malformations, and variable degrees of mental retardation. Lobar holoprosencephaly is associated with mild (or absent) facial malformations and intellectual abilities that range from mild mental retardation to normal. Holoprosencephaly is associated with CHROMOSOME ABNORMALITIES.
