Twenty patients with unilateral alveolar clefts and oronasal fistula underwent alveolar cleft grafting with a clinically appropriate amount of particulate allogeneic bone. The grafted cleft area was followed radiographically for three to six months postsurgery. Although it was difficult to quantitate, it was both clinically and… CONTINUE READING
