For children with cleft lip and palate, no major psychological impact of repeated surgeries

(Wolters Kluwer Health) Children born with cleft lip and cleft palate (CLP) commonly undergo multiple surgical procedures between infancy and adolescence. By the time they are teens, patients with CLP with more total surgeries do not have increased psychosocial problems.

With the exception of a few programs in the United States, most oral-maxillofacial surgery (OMS) residents do not train at a center where OMS is the primary surgical specialty on the cleft team that treats the patient from birth to adulthood. Therefore, for most residents, the earliest clinical exposure to patients with cleft lip/palate will be through the management of alveolar clefts, which are often performed by the OMS team. Thus, it is paramount that residents have a clear understanding of the implications of alveolar cleft surgery and the treatment of such patients.

The aim of this study was to determine the amount of deviation in nasolabial shape in patients with a cleft compared with an average non-cleft face, and to assess whether this difference is related to nasolabial aesthetics. Three-dimensional stereophotogrammetric images of 60 patients with a unilateral cleft were used. To quantify shape differences, four average non-cleft faces were constructed from stereophotogrammetric images of 141 girls and 60 boys. Three-dimensional shape differences were calculated between superimposed cleft faces and the average non-cleft face for the same sex and age group.

Conclusions: It was previously reported by the authors’ group that the 8- to 10-year-old age range is an at-risk period for psychosocial distress in children with craniofacial anomalies. Their current work demonstrates that increased number of operations during this time frame may result in long-term consequences in anxiety and depression in cleft lip and palate patients. CLINICAL QUESTION/LEVEL OF EVIDENCE: Risk, II.

CONCLUSIONS: Our findings suggest that different expression of miR-378 is consistent with the skewed sex ratio in the prevalence of NSCL/P. PMID: 32580581 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
