Maternal Stressful Life Events During the Periconceptional Period and Orofacial Clefts: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis
CONCLUSIONS: Limited evidence indicated a weak positive association between maternal stressful life events during the periconceptional period and risk of OFC in the offspring, but further studies with greater consistency in research design are needed.PMID:35014881 | DOI:10.1177/10556656211045553 (Source: The Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Journal)

Repair of Protruding Bilateral Cleft Lip and Palate With Staged Premaxilla Setback Osteotomy, Cheiloplasty, and Palatoplasty in Trisomy 17p Patient: A Review of Syndromic Clinical Characteristic
This study will review the surgical strategies to reconstruct the protruding premaxillary segment, cleft lip, and palate in trisomy 17p patient.The patient had heterozygous pathogenic duplication of chromosomal region chr17:526-18777088 on almost the entire short arm of chromosome 17. Beside the commonly found features of trisomy 17p, the patient also presented with BCLP with a prominent premaxillary portion. Premaxillary setback surgery was first performed concomitantly with cheiloplasty. The ostectomy was performed posterior to the vomero-premaxillary suture (VPS). The premaxilla was firmly adhered to the lateral segment...

Prevalence and Risk Factors for Obstructive Sleep Apnea Syndrome Among Children and Adolescents with Cleft lip and Palate: A Survey Study in Hong Kong
CONCLUSIONS: OSAS risk among children and adolescents of Hong Kong with CL/P was 9.5% to 13.6%. Patients at higher risk were those with cleft involving embryonic secondary palate. OSAS risk assessment may be influenced by different aspects of the disease spectrum, and a multimodal approach should be considered for such assessment.PMID:34939456 | DOI:10.1177/10556656211068306 (Source: The Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Journal)

A Case Report on Lateral Proboscis: A Rare Congenital Anomaly
Cleft Palate Craniofac J. 2021 Dec 21:10556656211066434. doi: 10.1177/10556656211066434. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTLateral proboscis is a rare congenital condition characterized by a cylindrical protuberance on the nasofrontal region accompanied by abnormal nasal development on the affected side. We aimed to describe the management of the lateral proboscis in staged repair. A 7-year-old girl came with a tube-like projection on the left medial canthal region and nasal agenesis on the ipsilateral side. She was diagnosed with lateral proboscis, left microphthalmia, lower eye lid coloboma, and asymmetry in the orbital regi...
