Objective assessment of the results of cleft lip and nose surgery is necessary to quantify differences between alternative surgical techniques. A previously described method of measuring facial asymmetry has been modified to allow a comparison of differently treated cleft noses (radical nasal correction versus no nasal correction). Standardised, inferior(More)
The appearance of the nose, mouth and nostrils was analysed in two series of unilateral, complete cleft lip patients. A programme was written for use on a BBC microcomputer to measure the symmetry of facial features traced from photographs. Symmetry was measured using one of two methods: determining the area of non-overlap when one side was reflected on the(More)
The first 10 consecutive unilateral cleft subjects operated on in 1975 by a technique of primary cleft nose correction, developed by the author (HKM), were reviewed at ages 10 and 18. No further nasal surgery had been performed on these cases. The anteroposterior and inferior facial appearances of each of the cases have been published for evaluation. A(More)
Phylogeographic studies around the world have identified refugia where fauna were able to persist during unsuitable climatic periods, particularly during times of glaciation. In Australia the effects of Pleistocene climate oscillations on rainforest taxa have been well studied but less is known about the effects on mesic-habitat fauna, such as the eastern(More)
A computer-based system of assessing asymmetry was used to compare standardised photographs of primarily corrected cleft noses, uncorrected cleft noses and control (normal) noses. A significant difference was found between control and cleft groups for both upper nasal perimeter (p < 0.001) and nostril outline (p = 0.001), and between uncorrected and(More)
