Barriers and Facilitators to the International Implementation of Standardized Outcome Measures in Clinical Cleft Practice
CONCLUSIONS: Identified themes can inform ongoing implementation efforts. Intentionally investing time to lay a sound foundation early on will benefit every phase of implementation and help overcome barriers such as lack of support or motivation.PMID:33663243 | DOI:10.1177/1055665621997668 (Source: The Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Journal)

Dens Invaginatus in Patients With Cleft Lip and Palate: A Case Series

Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTDens invaginatus is a rare developmental anomaly characterized by an infolding of the enamel organ within the crown or root of a tooth, and it is an example of a dental anomaly that has a higher incidence in patients with CL/P. If undiagnosed, dens invaginatus can lead to severe, acute pain and pulpal necrosis since it can permit direct entry of bacteria into the dental pulp. Treatment of dens invaginatus includes prophylactic sealant or composite restoration, endodontic therapy if pulpal involvement has alre...

Custom-Made Nasal Retainer Using Latex Nelaton Urine Catheter After the Cheiloplasty.
Abstract Nasal retainers are common tools used in managing patients with cleft lip. The significance of nasal retainer in preventing nostril collapse or stenosis to maintain a symmetrical nose after the surgical procedures is already well known. We came up with a way to create a nasal retainer using a latex nelaton catheter. Custom-made nasal retainer using latex nelaton catheter was used postoperatively on a 10-month-old infant with median cleft lip after cheiloplasty. In postoperative day 7, her nostrils were large enough for premade silicone nasal retainer to fit. She was discharged with instructions given to u...

Palatoplasty for the Patient With Campomelic Dysplasia-Report of a Case and Review of the Literature.
Abstract Campomelic dysplasia (CMPD) is a skeletal disorder resulting from SOX9 gene mutations. Palatoplasty is rare due to a high lethality rate in infants from respiratory distress. Our patient had characteristic symptoms of CMPD, including short bowed limbs, macrocephaly, low-set ears, short palpebral fissures, hypertelorism, a flat nasal bridge, a long philtrum, micrognathia, and a cleft palate. We performed a Furlow palatoplasty when the patient was 2 years 9 months of age, after respiratory conditions had stabilized. We reviewed the literature of CMPD cases that underwent palatoplasty and discussed the optim...

Dental Subphenotypes in Infants With Orofacial Clefts-A Longitudinal Population-Based Retrospective Radiographic Study of the Primary and Secondary Dentitions.
Abstract OBJECTIVES: To determine the developmental patterns of primary and secondary dentitions in infants with orofacial clefts. DESIGN: Retrospective, longitudinal, population-based cohort study. MATERIALS: Longitudinal records and radiographs of 192 nonsyndromic Northern European infants with isolated unilateral cleft lip (UCL, n = 111) and isolated cleft palate (CP, n = 81). METHODS: Radiographic assessments of primary and secondary dentition anomalies and dental maturation, by gender and cleft severity for comparisons between the groups and with historical controls. RESULTS: In infants wi...

Interpersonal Relationship Experiences in Adults Born With Cleft Lip and/or Palate: A Whole of Life Survey in the United Kingdom.
CONCLUSIONS: Individuals with CL/P are at risk of negative social experiences, which if not appropriately addressed may impact psychological well-being in adulthood. The findings illustrate the importance of routine psychosocial support from childhood onward to help individuals with CL/P build social skills, self-esteem, and social confidence and to develop mutually fulfilling friendships and intimate relationships. Additionally, societal campaigns to raise awareness and target discrimination may be helpful. PMID: 33535806 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: The Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Journal)

Subannular Tubes in Children With Cleft Palate.
CONCLUSION: Subannular tube insertion results in hearing improvement to normal range and tympanic retraction pockets reversion in children with cleft palate with persistent otitis media with effusion and tympanic retraction/atelectasis. This surgery appears to be safe and provides long-term efficient middle ear aeration. Strict postoperative follow-up is crucial for the success of the treatment.

Dental Age Estimation According to European Formula and Willems Method: Comparison Between Children With and Without Cleft Lip and Palate.
Abstract OBJECTIVE: To assess dental age and deviations of dental from chronological age according to the Willems and Cameriere methods (European formula) in patients with cleft lip and/or cleft palate (CL/P) and compare it with control group. DESIGN: Retrospective cross-sectional study. SETTING: Clinic of Orthodontics. PARTICIPANTS: Sixty-nine patients with CL/P between 6 and 15 years of age (55 with unilateral and 14 with bilateral CL/P) with 148 panoramic radiographs. The same number of radiographs was examined in the age-matched control group. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES: Estimation and compariso...

Intelligibility in 3-Year-Olds With Cleft Lip and/or Palate Using the Intelligibility in Context Scale: Findings from the Cleft Collective Cohort Study.
Abstract OBJECTIVE: To provide comparison data on the Intelligibility in Context Scale (ICS) for a sample of 3-year-old English-speaking children born with any cleft type. DESIGN: Questionnaire data from the Cleft Collective Cohort Study were used. Descriptive and inferential statistics were carried out to determine difference according to children's cleft type and syndromic status. PARTICIPANTS: A total of 412 children born with cleft lip and/or palate whose mothers had completed the ICS when their child was 3 years old. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURE(S): Mothers' rating of their children's intelligibility u...

Australian Orthodontists Utilization and Attitude Toward a Government Funded Cleft Scheme.
CONCLUSIONS: Australian orthodontists who treat patients with clefts tend to be older and work outside of capital cities. The decision to treat these patients tends to not be financially motived. Specialty orthodontic training programs could improve the preparedness of their graduates to treat patients with clefts.

Surgical Variation Between Consultant Surgeons Performing a Sommerlad Radical Intravelar Veloplasty.
CONCLUSIONS: The findings provide insight into areas of variation seen within one surgical technique of cleft palate repair. These variations may have arisen to accommodate heterogeneity in the patient population or may have evolved in relation to different experiences of training or influences of colleagues. Further work is needed to explore the reasons for these differences in technique and to identify if any of these subtle differences contributed to variability in outcomes.
