Analysis of tracheal morphology by spiral CT in 126 cleft palate children.

Conclusions: The upper airway of the subglottic area and the cricoid area in cleft palate children are elliptical, with the transverse dimension narrow and the anteroposterior dimension wide. Cleft palate children with airway stenosis underwent surgery smoothly by using a portable visible laryngoscope. PMID: 30630255 [PubMed - in process]

This study sought to compare patient demographics, operative course, and peri-operative outcomes between unilateral and bilateral cleft patients. Primary cleft lip repairs were isolated from the National Surgical Quality Improvement Program Pediatric Database (NSQIP-P). Unilateral and bilateral cases of primary cleft lip were identified by ICD codes. Demographics, comorbidities, and post-operative outcomes were compared between cohorts. Patients were propensity matched to control for differences before repeating the analysis. About 4550 cleft lip repairs were evaluated over the 5-year period. Of the cases where the cleft t...

Conclusions The overall revision rate was 9.6%, which is relatively lower than that in other cleft centers. However, the repair technique and cleft care program should not be evaluated using the revision rate only. Various factors, including surgeons' preference, contribute to the indications for revision, and these factors can change with age. We plan to follow up the patients until our completion of the cleft care program and report the final revision rate.

CONCLUSIONS: The present study identified several factors associated with psychological well-being of adolescents with craniofacial diagnoses and demonstrates the importance of creating interventions to target specific psychosocial needs. Findings from this study may guide researchers in developing and refining a specific program for this population and provide information to help those with craniofacial conditions who are experiencing psychosocial challenges.

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To evaluate dental changes in cleft patients after undergoing orthodontic treatment for at least 2 years. HYPOTHESIS: The dental change would decline significantly after 2 years of completing orthodontic treatment. DESIGN: This is a retrospective study. PATIENT: Eighteen repaired cleft lip and palate patients from the Faculty of Dentistry, KhonKaen University, Thailand, participated in this study. MEAN OUTCOME MEASURES: A dental model with before treatment (T0), completed treatment (T1), and retention period (T2) data was analyzed using the peer assessment rating (PAR) index...

This study aimed to evaluate the orofacial functions and oral health-related quality of life (OHRQoL) of children with unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP). This case-control study included patients with UCLP matched by sex and age with controls (children without UCLP), resulting in the inclusion of a total of 108 eight- to ten-year-old children. Orofacial functions and OHRQoL were evaluated using the Nordic Orofacial Test-Screening (NOT-S) and the Child Perceptions Questionnaire (CPQ 8-1 0 ), respectively. Data normality was assessed by the Kolmogorov-Smirnov test. Differences and correlations in NOT-S and CPQ 8-1 0 sco...
