The anatomical aberration of the premaxilla in bilateral cleft lip and palate (BCLP) gives rise to many problems. Orthodontic and orthopaedic treatment alone often fail to correct this deformity. In this study, the results of a combined surgical-orthodontic approach were analysed. 22 BCLP-patients, who had undergone an osteotomy of the premaxilla in combination with secondary or tertiary bone grafting, were involved in this study. Two cephalograms were analysed from each patient, one prior to… CONTINUE READING
