AbstractCleft rhinoplasty is a demanding, technique-sensitive procedure. Part art, part science; it poses several probing questions to the surgeon. The unilateral cleft nasal deformity is a distinct entity because the pursuit of symmetry in the unilateral cleft nose makes the repair much more challenging. The advent of nasoalveolar moulding, the gaining popularity of primary (early) nasal repair and greater refinements in secondary (definitive) rhinoplasty techniques have contributed to better nasal results in unilateral cleft repair. Yet, some obstacles remain. This paper aims to discuss the anatomy of the unilateral clef...

Abstract BACKGROUND: A genetic disorder should be considered when an infant presents with multiple congenital anomalies. Because of the acute presentation of an infant with multiple life-threatening defects, a genetic diagnosis of a rare disorder took weeks to delineate. CLINICAL FINDINGS: This case describes a late preterm infant who presented at birth with congenital diaphragmatic hernia, tetralogy of Fallot, cleft lip, low-set ears, and hypertelorism. PRIMARY DIAGNOSIS: Donnai-Barrow syndrome was the final diagnosis confirmed by a defect observed on the LRP2 (2q31.1) gene using sequence analysis. This...

Authors: DENTAL SUPPLEMENT, Giuca MR, Fambrini E, Pasini M, Giacomina A, Fortini G, Gatti G Abstract Cleft lip and/or palate patients (CLP) undergo corrective surgery that can affect facial growth. The aim of this study was to analyze facial growth and maxillary development of CLP subjects after surgery according to P.I.S.A. technique (Peri osteoplasty Improves Symmetry and Aesthetic). Cephalometric tracings of 55 patients were performed, thirty-three of which belonged to the test group, while the lasting twenty subjects were part of the control group. The test group was formed by cleft lip and/or palate patients a...

It is not unusual for the protruding premaxilla to attain an undesirable position after the cleft lip repair. Such a premaxilla may lead to considerable problems in facial aesthetics, or oral functions, or both in early childhood. These abnormal premaxillas may produce difficulties in bone grafting and orthodontic treatment in late childhood. In such cases, surgical correction of the premaxilla in childhood is justified. From 2013 to 2018, 11 children, aged 2 to 11 years, had a secondary ostectomy of their premaxilla.

ConclusionCleft Lip and/or Palate and Gastroschisis prevalence were higher than those found in the literature. This findings may suggest a distinct epidemiological behavior regarding major birth defects in the region. The work opens new perspectives for birth defects risk factors in the triple-border.

CONCLUSIONS: Two-stage surgery, surgeon, and surgeon volume were significant predictors of fistula occurrence in all children, and older age at hard palate repair was protective in those with 2-stage repair. PMID: 32573252 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
