ConclusionThe two-flap palatoplasty with IVV plus Z-plasty technique is a suitable method for increasing the palatal length in infants with cleft palate. On the other hand, the addition of Z-plasty method could increase the length of the palate. Moreover, the complications are very low and further trials for development of this method on patients with cleft palate are recommended.Trial registration number (TRN)IRCT2017032423559N11

ConclusionDifferences in the shape and geometry of the velopharyngeal area in subjects with a regular velopharyngeal structure and function and patients with cleft palate do exist. The significant differences found here can be categorized into two groups: one reflects distances between the anterior and posterior pharynx, presenting longer distances for patients with CLP. The second significant difference regards values of length in cranio-caudal direction, which is longer in healthy subjects. With regards to these values, one could conclude, that even though total volumes of both groups did not differ in size, group 1 show...
ConclusionMaxillary hypoplasia in adult cleft patients distorts the circum maxillary and pterygomaxillary anatomy with cleft side being more hypoplastic compared to the noncleft side which needs to be evaluated prior to planning maxillary advancement.

While there have been previous studies examining the relation between the rs17820943 and rs6072081 polymorphisms in the v-maf musculoaponeurotic fibrosarcoma oncogene homolog B (MAFB) gene and rates of nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate (NSCL/P), at present the results of these studies have been inconsistent. This meta-analysis therefore aimed to conduct a more robust assessment of the association between the MAFB rs17820943 and rs6072081 polymorphisms and NSCL/P risk. The Embase, Web of Science, PubMed, the China National Knowledge Internet (CNKI), and Wanfang databases were systematically searched to ide...
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...
