Morphofunctional changes of orofacial muscles in patients with unilateral or bilateral cleft lip, alveolus and palate.

Abstract

The facial musculature is part of a biocybernetic feedback system within the stomatognathic system, the continuity of which is disturbed by clefts of the lip, jaw, and palate (cheilognathopalatoschisis). This results in topographic, fine-structural and functional alterations of the facial musculature. In two heads with unilateral clefts and two heads with… (More)
