Upper airway assessment using four different maxillary expanders in cleft patients: A cone-beam computed tomography study.

CONCLUSIONS:   Only the Hyrax and inverted mini-hyrax on the molar expanders effectively increased the nasal passage volume, and none of the expanders evaluated in this study modified the oropharyngeal airway. PMID: 26595658 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

Peer support. Engaging exchanges on velopharyngeal surgery. Access to timely resources. SIG 5 offers all that and more. What would you say to encourage other colleagues to join SIG 5? Angela Dixon: For much of my career I was the only SLP in my state who specialized in cleft/craniofacial disorders. That was a lot of pressure and can be very isolating. It was difficult to not have an easy team of SLPs to learn from, bounce ideas off, etc. Joining SIG 5 provided that for me. I met a group of SLPs who had passions similar to mine, and SIG 5 allowed me an opportunity to network, learn, grow, and eventually even make friends. M...

Patients with unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP) may require Le Fort I advancement to correct maxillary hypoplasia after reaching skeletal maturity. Underlying cleft anatomy, previous operations, and scarring may affect nostil changes following maxillary advancement. The purpose of this study was to determine whether Le Fort I advancement affects nostril configuration (width, axis, and shape) in patients with UCLP. The specific aims were to (1) compare cleft and non-cleft nostrils in patients with UCLP after maxillary advancement and (2) compare changes in nostril configuration in patients with UCLP to those in non-cle...

Therefore, elucidating the molecular mechanisms of palate development is crucial for basic science and the clinical field. Cleft palate in mouse with targeted gene mutation is an excellent experimental model for clarifying the mechanisms driving palate development. Cleft palate...

CONCLUSIONS: We used a family-based analysis in 334 Taiwanese case-parent trios to validate the possible role for ABCA4 and ARHGAP29 in the susceptibility to nonsyndromic oral clefts. This study provides a new evidence for an association between the intron variant rs560426 within ABCA4 and nonsyndromic cleft palate which may contribute their regulatory role in craniofacial development.

Abstract Family-centered care is a high-priority focus area in health care and is associated with increased family satisfaction and quality of life, better health outcomes and family follow-up, decreased burden of care, and improved efficiency of resource utilization. Motivated by our aim to improve clinic efficiency and patient retention, our multidisciplinary cleft palate and craniofacial center has been undergoing a complex family-centered reorganization over the past 3 years. We seek to share our experience in hope the information will be a useful starting point to other teams in structuring their own family-c...

CONCLUSION: Parenting stress was higher and social support was lower for mothers of infants with a cleft. Treatment teams can design interventions aimed at factors related to stress, such as addressing feeding issues, teaching coping skills, and linking to social support.

rsson C Abstract OBJECTIVE: To compare consonant proficiency, consonant errors, and the perceived velopharyngeal (VP) competence in internationally adopted (IA) children with unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP) and nonadopted (NA) children with the same cleft-palate type at age 5. DESIGN: Case-control study based on phonetic transcriptions of standardized speech recordings of 5-year-olds at a tertiary hospital. PARTICIPANTS: Twenty-five IA children were compared to 20 NA children. All consecutive patients at a cleft lip and palate center participated. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Consonant proficienc...
