Treatment approaches to syndromes affecting craniofacial and dental structures

ConclusionsEarly detection of syndromes affecting craniofacial and dental structures is vital for early identification of severe or life-threatening complications and patients’ customized, integrated, long-term planning.

er A Abstract OBJECTIVE: To compare speech outcome following different sequencing of hard and soft palate closure between arms and centers within trial 3 and compare results to peers without cleft palate. DESIGN: A prospective randomized clinical trial. SETTING: Two Norwegian and 2 British centers. PARTICIPANTS: One hundred thirty-six 5-year-olds with unilateral cleft lip and palate were randomized to either lip and soft palate closure at 3 to 4 months and hard palate closure at 12 months (arm A) or lip and hard palate closure at 3 to 4 months and soft palate closure at 12 months (arm D). MAIN ...

This study is a case series of 62 surgically na ïve children with OSA who were considered high risk for persistence after AT and underwent DISE-directed intervention with pre- and postoperative polysomnography between 2012 and 2016. Analysis was performed with the pairedt test.ResultsChildren were on average 5.9 ( ± 5.5, 0.2–18.6) years old at the time of surgery, 68% male, 18% obese, and 60% white. Thirty-eight percent had a syndromic diagnosis: 19% trisomy 21, 11% hypotonic neuromuscular disorder, and 8% craniofacial condition. The remaining 62% were non-syndromic but underwent DISE because they ...

This study is a case series of 62 surgically naïve children with OSA who were considered high risk for persistence after AT and underwent DISE-directed intervention with pre- and postoperative polysomnography between 2012 and 2016. Analysis was performed with the paired t test. RESULTS: Children were on average 5.9 (± 5.5, 0.2-18.6) years old at the time of surgery, 68% male, 18% obese, and 60% white. Thirty-eight percent had a syndromic diagnosis: 19% trisomy 21, 11% hypotonic neuromuscular disorder, and 8% craniofacial condition.

Cleft lip is one of the most commonly encountered craniofacial deformities. While comprehensive management of this deformity requires a multidisciplinary team approach, this article will specifically focus on the surgical management of the unilateral cleft lip deformity. As evidenced by the multiple techniques that have been developed for its repair, a functionally and aesthetically pleasing result is challenging to attain. Optimal surgical repair requires a thorough understanding of the underlying anatomy, which is reviewed.

The authors present a modified technique of temporalis muscle transposition technique in cases of longstanding facial paralysis. Slips of the temporalis fascia were passed through the tunnels to reach the contralateral para-median plane. The procedure provides 2 point of fixation to the transferred muscle. Local flaps were used for temporal hollow obliteration and for temporalis muscle elongation. This case series included 11 patients. The modified technique was performed for all patients to reanimate the lower face while gold weight impanation in the upper eye lid was used for re-animation of the eye in 9 patients. By th...

Conclusion: Due to the wide variation in the morphology of nasopalatine canals, it is highly recommended to perform CBCT evaluation to the anterior maxilla before dental implantology in order to prevent any damage to the neurovascular bundle.

The effect of maxillary skeletal expansion (MSE) on upper airway in adolescent patients is not clear. The purpose of this study was to determine the upper airway airflow with MSE treatment using computational fluid dynamics analysis. Three-dimensional upper airway finite element models fabricated from cone beam computed tomography images were obtained before and after treatment in an adolescent patient with maxillary constriction. Turbulent analyses were applied. The nasal cavity (NC) was divided into 6 planes along the y-axis and the pharynx was divided into 7 planes in the z-axis. Changes in cross-sectional area, airflow...
