  1. 1. Cleft Size and Maxillary Arch Dimensions in Unilateral Cleft Lip and Palate and Cleft Palate

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Författare :Erika Reiser; Uppsala universitet.; [2011]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Unilateral cleft lip and palate; cleft palate; cleft size; maxillary arch dimensions; crossbite; facial growth; nasal function; Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery; Käkkirurgi;

    Sammanfattning : The wide variation in infant maxillary morphology and cleft size of children with unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP) and isolated cleft palate (CP) raise concerns about their possible influences on treatment outcome. The studies in this thesis aimed to investigate the relation between cleft size in infancy and crossbite at 5 years of age (Paper I); the impact of primary surgery on cleft size and maxillary arch dimensions from infancy to 5 years of age (Paper II); associations between cleft size, maxillary arch dimensions and facial growth in both UCLP and CP children (Paper III); and, to evaluate the relation between infant cleft size and nasal airway size and function in adults treated for UCLP (Paper IV).

    Sammanfattning : Cleft lip and palate (CLP) is the most common craniofacial malformation. Even after repair of the cleft there may be persistent symptoms affecting speech, voice, nasal breathing, dentition, appearance and quality of life. LÄS MER

  3. 3. Unilateral Cleft Lip and Palate Quality of Life and Nasal Form and Function among Adults

    Detta är en avhandling från Uppsala : Acta Universitatis Upsaliensis

    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; unilateral cleft lip and palate; quality of life; SF-36; nasal function; nasal breathing; nasolabial appearance; cleft width; long-term results; MEDICINE Surgery Surgical research Plastic surgery; MEDICIN Kirurgi Kirurgisk forskning Plastikkirurgi; Plastikkirurgi; Plastic Surgery;

    Sammanfattning : Unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP) is a craniofacial malformation with functional and aesthetical impact on the face and the upper airways. The aims of the current thesis were to evaluate Quality of life (QoL) in adults treated for UCLP  (I), to objectively evaluate nasal form and function and to search for possible differences in residual nasal deformity and impairment of function between patients operated according to one-stage and two-stage palate closure (II) as well as to evaluate the relationship between professional and lay rating and patient satisfaction with nasolabial appearance (III) and to identify factors associated with lower levels of QoL and less satisfaction with nasal appearance among adults treated for UCLP (IV).

  4. 4. Subjective and objective aspects on living with a cleft. A study focused on the isolated cleft palate and the total bilateral cleft lip and palate

    Detta är en avhandling från Göteborg : University of Gothenburg

    Författare :Woranuch Chetpakdeechit; Göteborgs universitet.; Gothenburg University.; [2010]
    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; isolated cleft lip and palate; bilateral cleft lip and palate; social life; additional malformations; dental treatment outcome; esthetic assessment;

    Sammanfattning : Aims: To gain a deeper understanding of the social life aspects in individuals treated for isolated cleft palate (iCP) or total bilateral cleft lip and palate (BCLP). Furthermore, to study risks of having other birth defects in relation to the length of the iCP. For the BCLP, dental conditions and treatment results were evaluated. LÄS MER

    Nyckelord :MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; speech; cranio-facial morphology; perceptual speech analysis; long-term results; unilateral cleft lip and palate; cephalometry; von Langenbeck; bilateral cleft lip and palate; Wardill;

    Sammanfattning : Cleft lip and palate (CLP), the most common of all craniofacial anomalies, has an incidence about 2 per 1000 births in the Scandinavian countries. The Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Malmö has been a regional centre in southern Sweden for the treatment of patients with CLP since 1954 with about 40 new cases of clefts each year.
