Several million individuals with cleft lip and palate (CLP) exist in China, and it is estimated that at least 30,000 newborns with CLP are born every year. How to give them an optimal treatment with excellence is still a problem in most areas. The treatment of cleft patients presents various situations around world that are different from those in the(More)
Objective : This study aimed to analyze the asymmetry of the pyriform aperture and alar base in patients with unilateral secondary nasal deformities by three-dimensional computed tomography (3D-CT). Methods : 3D-CT images of the subject group of 101 adult patients and of a control group of 65 normal adults were examined. Sixty-nine patients without alveolar(More)
PURPOSE To establish a method to analyze malformed maxillae of postoperative adult patients with unilateral complete cleft lip and palate in 3 dimensions. MATERIALS AND METHODS A total of 35 landmarks were defined and used to reconstruct 3-dimensional maxillary images of healthy Chinese Han subjects and 30 postoperative Chinese Han adult patients (17 men(More)
BACKGROUND Speech disorders are the most common presentations of patients with velocardiofacial syndrome (VCFS) and are difficult to be treated with very good treatment outcome. The purpose of this study was to evaluate the clinical diagnosis and outcomes of sequential treatment of therapy for VCFS. METHODS A retrospective study of 120 patients (ages(More)
PURPOSE Secondary bone grafting plays an important role in the multimodal therapy of patients with cleft lips, alveoli, or palates. Through a comparative study of the nasal profile before and after alveolar bone grafting, this article aimed to determine the appropriate timing of operation and keys to success. METHODS In the study, 38 cases (23 boys and 15(More)
The aim of this study was to analyze the location and cause of postoperative bleeding after posterior pharyngeal flap pharyngoplasty and to investigate the surgical techniques with the goal of treating the bleeding. The patients received posterior pharyngeal flap pharyngoplasty in the Cleft Lip and Palate Treatment and Research Center of Shanghai Jiaotong(More)
PURPOSE To design and develop customized implants with the rapid prototyping (RP) technique in order to reconstruct the defected pyriform aperture. METHODS A 3-dimensional digital model was reconstructed with the software proplan CMF based on the computed tomography data of the patient's skeleton. Then an individualized implant was designed by(More)
