A total of 63 laterally situated partial clefts of the lip were studied. The biopsies obtained during the first operation were evaluated histologically. With a special stain, the fibre of the orbicularis oris muscle were demonstrated and their arrangement in relation to the cleft lip was recorded. The results indicate a close relationship between type and(More)
This is a review of the cleft lip repair of 232 patients. Three groups were compared, one repaired according to the Hagedorn-Le Mesurier-Steffensen technique, another by the Tennison method and a third using the Pfeifer wave-line procedure. Muscular union was best following Pfeifer's wave-line procedure. Both the Hagedorn-Le Mesurier-Steffensen and the(More)
The aim of this study was to answer the question: is it possible to save motor nerves when dissecting tissue with the hydro-jet dissector?

A total of 353 children with cleft lips and palates were examined with regard to the morphology of the tissue surrounding the clefts in the lip, jaw, and palate. Photographs, radiograms (panoramic views of the maxilla), and study models were taken prior to operation. Results indicate a close relationship between the degree and condition of the cleft and the(More)
