BACKGROUND Severe maxillary hypoplasia in cleft patients is caused by a combination of pathogenic and iatrogenic factors. In this work, the authors investigated anatomical deficiencies in dentition for predicting Le Fort I maxillary advancement surgery for severe maxillary hypoplasia in cleft patients. METHODS Cleft lip-cleft palate and cleft palate patients older than 14 years of age were reviewed for demographics, dental anomalies, and Le Fort I advancement. Chi-square tests, t tests, and… CONTINUE READING
