ConclusionsEndonasal osteotomy is a predictable way to reposition the bilateral cleft premaxilla while maintaining blood supply and preventing gingival scarring. This technique is minimally invasive and aids in anatomic repositioning for the orthodontic management of patients with complex bilateral cleft lip/palate. Further studies are needed to evaluate the stability of this procedure and considerations of simultaneous bone grafting.

AbstractSeptorhinoplasty is particularly challenging among revision surgeries for cleft sequelae. The challenge of cleft septorhinoplasty is mainly due to the complex anatomy of nose, deformity of each of its components and the difficulty and lack of clarity in surgical management. From 2014 to 2017, 26 patients with cleft lip nose deformity were operated by the same cleft team. The study was conducted to assess the improvement in nasal airway and appearance following secondary rhinoplasty with extracorporeal septoplasty. Post operatively each patient was evaluated using the standard modified rhinoplasty outcome evaluation...

All patients with a cleft lip deformity have an associated nasal deformity that varies in degree of severity. A three-dimensional understanding of the anatomy of the cleft nose aids surgeons in selecting the proper technique for repair. Analysis and performance of orthognathic surgery should be done before nasal surgery to optimize the overall result. Goals of the secondary rhinoplasty include relief of nasal obstruction, creation of symmetry and definition of the nasal base and tip, and management of nasal scarring and webbing. Septal reconstruction in the cleft nose is a key maneuver in cleft rhinoplasty.
