&NA; Sleep‐disordered breathing is frequently associated with children presenting congenital midface defects. Because of structural and functional anomalies in the upper airway, children with cleft palate, especially after surgery, may carry a higher risk of developing sleep‐disordered breathing. However, the presence of such sleep‐disordered breathing in older cleft palate children has not been emphasized. The aim of this comparative overnight cardiorespiratory sleep study was to evaluate… Expand
