Septal Integration Graft, a Modified Direct Type of Septal Extension Graft for the Treatment of Unilateral Cleft Lip Nose Deformity: An Anthropometric Analysis
Conclusions We used SIGs to correct nasal deformity in patients with cleft lip nose deformity. The SIG can minimize the amount of the graft used for septal extension and can effectively correct nasal tip and columella deformities.
Conclusions: Unilateral cleft lip nasal deformity may be “driven” by displacement of the anterior nasal spine and caudal septum. The cleft alar base is normal in position but retruded, whereas the noncleft alar base is displaced laterally. Changes with surgery involve anterior movement of the cleft alar base but also include medial movement of the noncleft alar base and columella. Symmetry of correction, including alar base retrusion, was stable over time and did not rely on alveolar bone grafting.
Conclusion Based on photogrammetry, primary cleft nasal correction in our patients with unilateral cleft lip achieved acceptable and stable outcomes during early childhood.
This study aimed to explore a particular single-stage method and evaluate the effect of simultaneous reparation of secondary unilateral cleft lip-nose deformities.Cleft lip patients who had previously undergone nasolabial surgery with residual poor nasal/lip appearance were included. The alveolar bone defect was repaired with granular costal cortical bone. Lip revision and rhinoplasty were performed using diced costal cartilage. The lip, nose, and alveolar deformities were corrected in one stage.From 2011 to 2017, 53 cases were treated. The vermilion discrepancy was corrected in all cases. Fifty-one patients were successfu...
CONCLUSIONS: We observed improvement in the anatomic contour of the cleft-side ala with costal cartilage grafting to the pyriform rim. This resulted in improved cleft-side alar form and thus overall alar symmetry. These results were obtained consistently, without significant complications. This technique is safe and provides a powerful tool to reposition the ala in secondary cleft rhinoplasty. Further studies will quantify the enhancement in nasal base symmetry.

Conclusions Using 3 validated scar assessment scales, no significant difference was found between the extended Mohler and Millard techniques in terms of lip or nose scars.
Despite the improvement of primary repair of nasal deformities during the management of cleft lip in infancy, this does not exclude the need for revision rhinoplasty in adulthood for complete patients’ rehabilitation. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the aesthetic outcome of secondary rhinoplasty using costal cartilage grafts in patients with unilateral cleft lip nasal deformity. Twenty patients who were operated at earlier ages for correction of cleft lip and had a residual unilateral cleft lip nasal deformity were included in this study. Costal cartilage rib grafts were harvested; carved and used for maxil...
Conclusions: Significant nasal correction can be achieved by means of reconstruction of nasal foundation, without nasal tip dissection. Preservation of tissue planes may allow for easier secondary revision, if necessary. CLINICAL QUESTION/LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Therapeutic, IV.
The Newcastle Surgical Training Centre Cadaveric Speech and Palate Surgery Course is an interactive and practical 1-day course for plastic surgery, ear, nose and throat surgery, and maxillofacial surgery trainees wishing to develop skills in cleft palate and speech surgery. The course is delivered by an expert faculty with delegates attending from the United Kingdom and abroad and costs £495 (US $650) to attend. This review provides information and an evaluation of the course.
Abstract OBJECTIVE: To assess the timing, type, and associated adjunct procedures for secondary cleft rhinoplasty nationally. DESIGN: Data were extracted from a national database of all secondary cleft rhinoplasty procedures (Current Procedural Terminology [CPT] codes 30460 and 30462). Frequency statistics were utilized to analyze demographics, comorbidities, surgical procedures, and timing. Chi-squared analysis and Fisher exact test were used for analysis. SETTING: National Surgical Quality Improvement Program-Pediatric Database. PARTICIPANTS: A total of 1720 patients met inclusion criteria for sec...
Conclusions A structured approach for secondary cleft rhinoplasty yields satisfying, reproducible, and stable results.
