  • Objective To clarify the clinical features of the microform cleft lip and to establish the ultrastructural characteristics of the orbicularis muscle. Design Clinical observations of the characteristic deformities and associated anomalies were made. Muscle biopsies were harvested for histologic and ultrastructural analyses. Patients Seventy-one consecutive patients with microform cleft lip were included in the study. Muscle biopsies were investigated in 11 patients among them. Results Nasal… CONTINUE READING
