Nasal airway and septal variation in unilateral and bilateral cleft lip and palate
Cleft lip and palate (CLP) affects the dentoalveolar and nasolabial facial regions. Internal and external nasal dysmorphology may persist in individuals born with CLP despite surgical interventions.Expand

Facial Soft-Tissue Asymmetry in Three-Dimensional Cone-Beam Computed Tomography Images of Children With Surgically Corrected Unilateral Clefts
AbstractCleft lip with or without cleft palate (CL/P) is a relatively common craniofacial malformation involving bony and soft-tissue disruptions of the nasolabial and dentoalveolar regions. TheExpand

Airway Obstruction and the Unilateral Cleft Lip and Palate Deformity: Contributions by the Bony Septum
BackgroundPatients with unilateral cleft lip and palate (CLP) deformities commonly develop nasal airway obstruction, necessitating septoplasty at the time of definitive rhinoplasty. We assessed theExpand

Bilateral cleft lip and palate: A morphometric analysis of facial skeletal form using cone beam computed tomography
Bilateral cleft lip and palate (BCLP) is caused by a lack of merging of maxillary and nasal facial prominences during development and morphogenesis. BCLP is associated with congenital defects of theExpand

Influence of prenatal EGCG treatment and Dyrk1a dosage reduction on craniofacial features associated with Down syndrome.
Trisomy 21 (Ts21) affects craniofacial precursors in individuals with Down syndrome (DS). The resultant craniofacial features in all individuals with Ts21 may significantly affect breathing, eatingExpand

On the Antiquity of Trisomy 21: Moving Towards a Quantitative Diagnosis of Down Syndrome in Historic Material Culture
Down syndrome was first medically described as a separate condition from other forms of cognitive impairment in 1866. Because it took so long for Down syndrome to be recognized as a clinical entityExpand

A Multivariate Analysis of Unilateral Cleft Lip and Palate Facial Skeletal Morphology
AbstractUnilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP) occurs when the maxillary and nasal facial prominences fail to fuse correctly during development, resulting in a palatal cleft and clefted soft and hardExpand

Facial Tissue Depths in Children with Cleft Lip and Palate
Cleft lip and palate (CLP) is a craniofacial malformation affecting more than seven million people worldwide that results in defects of the hard palate, teeth, maxilla, nasal spine and floor, andExpand

Epigallocatechin-3-Gallate Improves Facial Dysmorphology Associated with Down Syndrome
In Down syndrome (DS), the overall genetic imbalance caused by trisomy of chromosome 21 leads to a complex pleiotropic phenotype that involves a recognizable set of facial traits. Several studiesExpand
