OBJECTIVE The goal of this study was to clarify the efficacy of and indication for re-pushback surgery as secondary treatment for cleft palate. PARTICIPANTS Fifteen patients treated by re-pushback surgery involving intravelar veloplasty (IVV) with buccal mucosal grafting on the nasal surface and followed up more than 6 months were enrolled in this study. MAIN OUTCOME MEASURES Pre- and postoperative velopharyngeal functions were analyzed by perceptual voice analysis, blowing ratio, and… CONTINUE READING
