Using an Intake Form and Clinic Dashboard to Tailor and Improve the Cleft Team Clinic Visit for Families.

Authors: Pfeifauf KD, Snyder-Warwick AK, Scheve S, Grellner CL, Skolnick GB, Naidoo SD, Patel KB Abstract BACKGROUND: Multidisciplinary cleft care protocols commonly do not incorporate family needs, concerns, and preferences. SOLUTION: A family-centered model would incorporate family needs, concerns, and preferences with a view toward...

A Nationwide Survey of Oral Health Related Quality of Life of Children With Orofacial Cleft in New Zealand.

CONCLUSIONS: Significant differences in OHRQoL among children with OFC were found for the well-being domain for children with CLP as reported by P-CPQ, but the symptom domain and total score showed no differences. Poorer scores were reported for children of Pacific Island descent using both questionnaires. The study findings indicate that children with...

Cognitive, Motor, and Language Development of Preschool Children With Craniofacial Microsomia.

CONCLUSIONS: Cognitive and motor scores were similar for preschool-aged children with and without CFM. However, children with CFM scored lower than controls on language measures. We recommend early monitoring of language to identify preschoolers with CFM who could benefit from intervention. PMID: 33322943 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source:...

Occlusal and Functional Improvement of Patients With Midfacial Hypoplasia Corrected Using Intraoral Tooth-Borne Mid-Maxillary Osteodistractors at Teaching Hospital-Karapitiya, Sri Lanka.

CONCLUSION: This relatively novel approach to maxillary advancement by maxillary distraction using a combined surgical and modified orthodontic technique has proven to be successful. This protocol and the technique have improved function, occlusion, and the aesthetics. PMID: 33322923 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: The Cleft Palate-Craniofacial...

Cleft Care Readability: Can Patients Access Helpful Online Resources?

CONCLUSIONS: The information presented to patients on cleft care is too complex and well above the recommended 7th-grade reading level target set forth by the NIH and AMA, which hinders functional health literacy.

Oronasal Fistula Incidence Associated With Vomer Flap Repair of Cleft Palate: A Systematic Review and Meta-Analysis.

CONCLUSIONS: The vomer flap technique in cleft palate repair appears to be associated with a low ONF rate unaffected by syndromic diagnosis, number of surgeons, or patient age at time of repair. PMID: 33302724 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: The Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Journal)

Oral Flora and Perioperative Antimicrobial Interventions in Cleft Palate Surgery: A Review of the Literature.

CONCLUSIONS: The literature appears to support the use of preoperative antibiotics for cleft palatoplasty, but the benefits of prolonged postoperative antibiotic use remain questionable. PMID: 33302728 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: The Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Journal)

Efficacy of Staged Oronasal Fistula Reconstruction and Improved Bone Graft Survival in Cleft Patients Undergoing Secondary Reconstruction.

CONCLUSIONS: The 2-staged reconstructive approach described herein effectively resulted in resolution of prior recurrent recalcitrant fistulas and resulted in eventual bone grafting. By employing this technique, we report successful fistula repair and bone grafting in patients who had previously undergone multiple surgical reconstructions. PMID:...

Vertical Facial Skeletal Asymmetry and Occlusal Cant Relationship in Patients With Unilateral Cleft Lip and Palate.

CONCLUSIONS: There was no correlation between the occlusal cant and the vertical and horizontal skeletal asymmetries. Vertical asymmetries of the lower face and the medial cranial base were negatively correlated with the horizontal lower facial asymmetry.

Surgical Management of Velopharyngeal Insufficiency Due to Unilateral Oropharyngeal Agenesis in a Patient With Stickler Syndrome.

We describe the case of a 2-year-old patient with Stickler syndrome possessing a unique anatomic presentation of this pathology, managed successfully with a unilateral pharyngeal flap. PMID: 33280426 [PubMed - as supplied by publisher] (Source: The Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Journal)
