ABSTRACT The purpose of this case report is to present the nasoalveolar molding treatment (NAM) of an infant with complete unilateral cleft lip using a nasal stent with conventional configuration made of 0.32-inch titanium molybdenum alloy (TMA). An additional nasal stent with the same configuration was constructed of stainless steel wire, and the force application by the same activation was measured. In patients with cleft lip who benefit from NAM therapy but cannot come regularly to the… Expand

Maternal and Paternal Well-Being During Nasoalveolar Molding and Primary Surgery Periods.
TLDR
Depression and anxiety levels significantly increase before the lip surgery, and it may be recommended that the cleft team deliver information and psychological support especially at birth and before the surgical approaches. Expand

TLDR
It is concluded that nasal stents attached to the alveolar molding appliance, yield significant improvement of the nasal morphology and better nasal aesthetics presurgically. Expand
Presurgical Nasoalveolar Molding in Infants with Cleft Lip and Palate
TLDR
The NAM technique has eliminated surgical columella reconstruction and the resultant scar tissue from the standard of care in this cleft palate center and the ability to nonsurgically construct the Columella through the application of tissue expansion principles is demonstrated. Expand

TLDR
Presurgical nasoalveolar molding significantly increases the symmetry of the nose, and the increase in symmetry is maintained long term into early childhood. Expand

TLDR
The treatment protocol using the β-TW plate was not only easy and simple to apply but it was also cost-effective, with highly predictable outcomes, and provided the ideal alveolar cleft reduction without detrimental collapse of theAlveolar segments. Expand
