Repair of cleft lip and palate: 2. Evaluation of surgical techniques.

Abstract

Currently there is no consensus on which surgical technique, timing or sequence produces optimal results. In addition, there are now good indications that strategies adopted by some centres produce consistently superior results compared with other centres. Part 1 provided an overview of the surgical repair of clefts and outlined the general principles, as well as the most common surgical procedures. Part 2 evaluates the surgical techniques and discusses the clinical research methodology involved.
