Finite element growth analysis for the craniofacial skeleton in patients with cleft lip and palate.

Abstract

The purpose of this study was to clarify the differences in the nature of craniofacial growth between subjects with normal occlusion and patients with unilateral cleft lip and palate (CLP) in terms of the size, shape and principal growth direction of craniofacial skeleton using finite element method (FEM). Lateral cephalograms were taken of 40 subjects as… (More)
