Alar Base Augmentation Using Vomerine Bone Graft in Patients With Cleft Lip Nasal Deformity
Conclusions The vomer bone graft has been shown to correct the lateral and inferior disorientation of the alar base and improve the nostril and nasal tip aesthetic measurements. The vomer bone is therefore a sufficient bone source for grafting with high viability and no resorption.
CONCLUSIONS: Despite receiving early team care and feeding interventions, mothers of infants with CL/P reported higher stress and more challenges with feeding and growth. Future studies should examine targeted psychosocial interventions to improve feeding and growth outcomes in infants with CL/P. PMID: 32924577 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
Conclusions: Bilateral regional MNB, under direct vision trough the spheno palatine holes results an effective, easy, and safe method for pain relief during and after primary cleft palate repair surgeries. The combination of slight general anesthesia with local anesthesia and regional blocks, results a good option to reduce opioids utilization, to prevent neurotoxicity, respiratory depression, sickness, and vomiting facilitating early feeding and patient discharge.
CONCLUSIONS: Mothers of infants with orofacial clefts may need psychosocial support, particularly during pregnancy and the first year after birth. PMID: 32844663 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: Behavioral adjustment of preschoolers with CFM was comparable to peers. However, parental reports reflected greater concern for internalizing behaviors; thus, anxiety screening and interventions may benefit children with CFM. Among cases, more problems were reported for those with more complex presentations of CFM. Craniofacial microsomia-related speech problems should be distinguished from associated psychosocial symptoms during developmental evaluations. PMID: 32783465 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
CONCLUSIONS: This study provides a cleft data reference for WA. Live-birth prevalence for all clefts and by cleft type offers an appropriate method for estimating service utilization and provision. Patients with cleft accessed hospital services more frequently, at an earlier age, with higher LOS days than the control group. PMID: 32723094 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher]
TUESDAY, July 28, 2020 -- Having an increased number of surgeries between ages 8 and 10 years is associated with increased anxiety and depressive symptoms in teenagers with cleft lip and palate, according to a study published in the July issue of...
FRIDAY, July 3, 2020 -- Having multiple surgeries for cleft lip and palate doesn't appear to have a major impact on children's mental health, a new study shows. But there may be one three-year period that ups the odds for anxiety and depression,...
ConclusionThe successful molecular diagnosis of the presently reported patient illustrates the diagnostic utility of the SAVNet analysis as an innovative way of implementing an integrated exome ‐transcriptome analysis in clinical settings.
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.
I had an idyllic childhood. I was a cheery kid with great parents, raised in a wonderful neighborhood, always cared for and never wanted for anything. When people hear this background from someone whose addiction was so strong that they planned their methamphetamine use around their pregnancy, it can be hard to reconcile. There is no blueprint for addiction; this disease has no face. Not one person in my life would have guessed I’d be homeless with multiple DUIs, totaled a number of vehicles, and would have my son taken away by authorities twice before his second birthday, but it happened. And despite how absurd it m...
