CONCLUSIONS: Although the collaborative process has been challenging and has required ongoing dedication from multiple stakeholders, consistency in data collection over time will allow for key research questions in CL/P to be addressed, both in the United Kingdom (UK) and internationally. The process has also demonstrated the clinical utility of the measures and the potential for the gradual integration of the measures into clinical practice. UK progress has sparked global interest, and the adaptation of the framework and its corresponding measures for worldwide use is now a prominent focus. PMID: 31973561 [PubMed - a...

CONCLUSIONS: Buccinator re-repair (Bs + Re: IVVP) has been shown to be an effective and safe procedure in treating difficult postpalatoplasty velopharyngeal incompetence. It was also shown that it is still a physiological nonobstructive procedure with low morbidity. PMID: 31973560 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

CONCLUSIONS: Patients with 22q11.2DS are medically complex and are at increased risk of OSA at baseline. Wide PPF surgery for severe VPD does not significantly increase risk of OSA. Careful perioperative planning is essential to optimize both speech and sleep outcomes. PMID: 31973553 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]

This study seeks to categorize and quantify the incidental finding (IF) rate on CBCT in patients with cleft lip and palate (CLP) prior to orthodontic or surgical treatment. METHODS: This is systematic retrospective review of head and neck CBCTs in patients with nonsyndromic CLP taken between 2012 and 2019 at a single tertiary referral center. All assessments were performed independently by 4 observers (a head and neck radiologist and 3 orthodontists, including 2 fellowship-trained cleft-craniofacial orthodontists ). The images were divided into 9 anatomical areas and screened using serial axial slices and 3D reconstru...

Abstract OBJECTIVE: To investigate airway morphology changes in patients with Pierre Robin sequence (PRS) pre-/post-mandibular distraction osteogenesis (MDO) and to compare morphologic changes to age-matched controls. DESIGN: Retrospective case-control study. SETTING: Urban, academic, tertiary medical center. PATIENTS, PARTICIPANTS: Fifteen patients with PRS after MDO to relieve upper airway obstruction (UAO) (2008-2018); age-matched controls for post-MDO patients. INTERVENTIONS: Mandibular distraction osteogenesis, curvilinear internal mandibular distractors. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: (1) Ph...

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...
