The role of folic acid in oral clefting. (1/686)

The objective of this study is to describe the role of periconceptional folic acid supplementation and assess it's potential in the prevention of foetal abnormalities, and consists of a review of the literature undertaken using an electronic and hand search. This includes research trials and methodology associated with folic acid supplementation. It is recommended that all women planning to conceive should supplement their diet with folic acid in order to prevent abnormalities in neural tube development, particularly if there is a history of a previously affected pregnancy. There is increasing evidence that folic acid supplementation may, in addition, reduce the incidence of oral facial clefting. Further research with multi-disciplinary approaches in biochemistry, genetics, gene/environment interactions, and embryology are indicated.  (+info)

The incidence of cleft lip and palate deformities in the south-east of Scotland (1971-1990). (2/686)

This retrospective study reports the incidence of infants born with the cleft lip and palate anomaly within the Edinburgh Cleft Units catchment area, between 1 January, 1971, and 31 December, 1990. The importance of accurate data collection for local, regional, and national data bases is discussed with reference to the recent CSAG report on cleft lip and palate services in the UK. Five-hundred-and-two cleft lip and palate patients were identified (291 males, 211 females). The incidence is reported as 1.4 per 1000 live births (1 in 711). Twenty-five per cent of clefts affected the primary palate, 45 per cent affected the secondary palate, and the remaining 30 per cent were clefts of both the primary and secondary palate. Overall, a higher percentage of males were affected (58 per cent males to 42 per cent females). Clefts of the secondary palate, however, were more common in females (56 per cent females to 44 per cent males). Data presented in this study is similar to that previously reported from UK centres. It is suggested the accuracy of the UK cleft lip and palate data collection needs to be improved. Prospective data collection in a standardized format carried out on a national basis has to be a priority as recommended by the CSAG report.  (+info)

Do you care? A national register for cleft lip and palate patients. (3/686)

The Cleft Palate Index and, more recently, the Craniofacial Anomalies Register--CARE--have been in operation since 1982. This paper summarizes its development and plans for the future. CARE is a multidisciplinary committee involving all specialties involved in the treatment of this group of patients therefore it should and can be well placed to co-ordinate the cleft data arising from these patients.  (+info)

The many faces and factors of orofacial clefts. (4/686)

Orofacial clefts are congenital structural anomalies of the lip and/or palate that affect approximately 1/1000 live births. Their frequent occurrence as well as their extensive psychological, surgical, speech and dental involvement emphasize the importance of understanding the underlying causes. The etiology of orofacial clefts is complex, including multiple genetic and environmental factors. Rare forms, where they occur as one component of multiple congenital anomaly syndromes, have Mendelian or teratogenic origins; the non-syndromic forms of orofacial clefts are more common and are likely due to secondary gene-environment interactions. Recent advances in both molecular and quantitative approaches have begun to identify the genes responsible for the rare syndromic forms of cleft and have also identified both candidate genes and loci for the more common and complex non-syndromic variants. Animal models, in particular the mouse, have also contributed greatly to an understanding of these disorders. This review describes genes that are involved in orofacial clefts in humans and animal models and explores genetic approaches to identifying additional genes and gene-environment interactions that constitute the many factors of orofacial clefts.  (+info)

Maternal cigarette smoking during pregnancy and risk of oral clefts in newborns. (5/686)

The results of previous epidemiologic research on the possible association between maternal smoking during pregnancy and risk of oral clefts in offspring have been inconsistent. This may be due in part to methodological limitations, including imprecise measurement of tobacco use, failure to consider etiologic heterogeneity among types of oral clefts, and confounding. This analysis, based on a large case-control study, further evaluated the effect of first trimester maternal smoking on oral facial cleft risk by examining the dose-response relationship according to specific cleft type and according to whether or not additional malformations were present. A number of factors, including dietary and supplemental folate intake and family history of clefts, were evaluated as potential confounders and effect modifiers. Data on 3,774 mothers interviewed between 1976 and 1992 by the Slone Epidemiology Unit Birth Defects Study were used. Study subjects were actively ascertained from sites in areas around Boston, Massachusetts and Philadelphia, Pennsylvania; the state of Iowa; and southeastern Ontario, Canada. Cases were infants with isolated defects--cleft lip alone (n = 334), cleft lip and palate (n = 494), or cleft palate alone (n = 244)--and infants with clefts plus (+) additional malformations: cleft lip+ (n = 58), cleft lip and palate+ (n = 140), or cleft palate+ (n = 209). Controls were infants with defects other than clefts, excluding defects possibly associated with maternal cigarette use. There were no associations with maternal smoking for any oral cleft group, except for a positive dose response among infants with cleft lip and palate+ (for light smokers, odds ratio (OR) = 1.09 (95% confidence interval (CI): 0.6, 1.9); for moderate smokers, OR = 1.84 (95% CI: 1.2, 2.9); and for heavy smokers, OR = 1.85 (95% CI: 1.0, 3.5), relative to nonsmokers). This finding may be related to the additional malformations rather than to the cleft itself.  (+info)

A 5-year post-operative review of secondary alveolar bone grafting in the Yorkshire region. (6/686)

The objective of this study was to determine the quality of secondary alveolar bone grafting in the Yorkshire region, and consisted of a retrospective review of patients case notes and radiographs at five surgical units within the Yorkshire region. The subjects were 109 patients who had secondary alveolar bone grafting between 1.9.91. and 31.8.96. The quality of outcome was assessed using a four-point radiographic scale from occlusal radiographs taken at least 3 months post-operatively: Grade 1 = > 75 per cent bony in-fill, Grade 2 = 50-75 per cent bony in-fill, Grade 3 = < 50 per cent bony in-fill, and Grade 4 = no bony bridge. The radiographic assessment scale was assessed for reliability: inter-examiner weighted kappa = 0.622-0.715 and intra-examiner = 0.818-0.943. Grade 1 results were achieved in 63.2 per cent patients receiving orthodontic expansion and in 40 per cent without expansion before grafting. The four-point radiographic scale described is a useful tool in assessing alveolar bone grafting, Orthodontic expansion.  (+info)

Craniofacial skeletal abnormalities in anomalous calves with clefts of the face. (7/686)

Thirteen anomalous calves with clefts of the face were morphologically examined, and craniofacial skeletons were studied in detail. According to the type and site of the cleft, four groups could be distinguished: median cleft lip and jaw (CLJ); median cleft lip, jaw, and palate (CLJP); lateral CLJ; and cleft palate (CP), including unilateral and bilateral type. Craniofacial skeletal abnormalities were observed in several bones at the roof, wall, and floor of the nasal cavity and at the boundary portion between the nasal and cranial cavities. Fissure formation at the cranial sutures, partial absence of the nasal process of the incisive bone, and opening of the bony palate were characteristic changes in median CLJ and CLJP, lateral CLJ, and CP, respectively. Furthermore, various associated changes were recognized in the median and paramedian skeletal elements of the face and other organs. The morphological changes of craniofacial skeletons with various types of clefts of the face depended on the site and degree of the cleft formation and reflected developmental errors of the facial embryonic segments. These changes would suggest disorders of the correlated development of facial processes and of other fetal organs of the face. For these conditions, etiologically hereditary cases were negative.  (+info)

Popliteal pterygium syndrome: a clinical study of three families and report of linkage to the Van der Woude syndrome locus on 1q32. (8/686)

Popliteal pterygium syndrome (PPS) is a rare autosomal dominant disorder, thought to occur with an incidence of approximately 1 in 300 000 live births. The main clinical manifestations are popliteal webbing, cleft lip, cleft palate, lower lip pits, syndactyly, and genital and nail anomalies. This report describes the clinical features in two families with PPS and one isolated case, showing the range of anomalies found both within and between the families. PPS has some features in common with Van der Woude syndrome (VWS), also inherited as an autosomal dominant condition, with cleft lip/palate and, more distinctively, lower lip pits. Although the gene for VWS has not yet been identified, it has been localised to within 1.6 cM in the region 1q32-41. To determine whether PPS and VWS represent allelic forms of the same gene, three families were genotyped for markers flanking and within the critical region. A multipoint lod score of 2.7 was obtained, with no evidence of recombination, supporting the hypothesis that these two disorders are allelic.  (+info)

Cleft lip defects are usually regarded as a single entity, with the assumption that an accompanying cleft palate represents the more severe form. The authors linked data from the Medical Birth Registry of Norway with medical records from two centralized centers to provide a population-based data set. They assessed the distribution of cleft lip only and cleft lip with cleft palate by covariate. Among 1.8 million Norwegian livebirths between 1967 and 1998, there were 1,572 cases of cleft lip with cleft palate and 1,122 cases with cleft lip only. Seventeen percent of those with cleft lip and palate had another defect compared with 9% of those with cleft lip only. For boys, the risk was greater for cleft lip and palate than for cleft lip only (odds ratio = 2.4 vs. 1.8, p , 0.001 for difference). The risk of cleft lip only, but not of cleft lip and palate, was increased for twins (odds ratio = 1.6 vs. 1.1, p = 0.11) and infants whose parents were first cousins (odds ratio = 2.7 vs. 0.7, p = 0.07). ...
Incidence (Cleft Lip Palate). Incidence of the different types of clefts with involvement of the lip in a group of 45 consecutive patients; the distribution corresponds to that of a large population. Most frequent are unilateral cleft lip palate (green = uCLP) and unilateral cleft lip (white = CL), which occur in 2/3 of all cases. Bilateral types of clefts occur in 1/5 of all cases, with bilateral types combined with cleft palate (blue = bCLP) occurring more frequently than bilateral cleft lip alveolus (light blue = bCL*) or bilateral cleft lip (pink = bCL). Every tenth case is one of unilateral cleft lip alveolus (light green = uCL*). Totally, 70 % are clefts with involvement of the lip, and 30 % are isolated cleft palate. ...
ObjectivesAssessment of treatment outcome is the only non-invasive approach to identify the effects of cleft lip and palate repair and modify management accordingly. Here the aim is to assess the outcome of complete unilateral cleft lip and palate (CUCLP) patients using EUROCRAN index and to check whether there are any factors associated with the treatment outcome.Materials and methodsIt is a retrospective cross sectional study. Dental models were collected from archives of two cleft referral centers in Pakistan. Five blinded examiners scored 101 models twice at two week interval. The primary outcome was mean EUROCRAN scores based on dental arch relationships and palatal surface morphology.ResultsA mean(SD) score of 2.72 (0.76) and 2.20 (0.73) was determined based on dental arch relationships and palatal surface morphology, respectively. According to the final logistic regression model, modified Millard technique (cheiloplasty) and Veau-Wardill-Kilners method (palatoplasty) had higher odds of ...
Prior studies have implicated an involvement of the Msxl homeobox gene in cleft palate in mice and its homolog in humans (called MSXI in the HOX7 gene, located on chromosome 4), In this study we present evidence of a sex-dependent association between MSXl and nonsyndromic cleft lip/palate (NSCLP) in the Chilean population. The sample included 73 NSCLP cases, 37 from multiplex families (Mx), 36 from simplex families (Sx), and 87 controls. Polymerase chain reaction amplification of the MSXl intragenic microsatellite (CA)n-sequence shows significant (1 = 0.035) differences in the allele frequencies between NSCLP-Mx males and control males. These differences are mainly due to frequency differences in allele *2 (173 base pairs) among cases (21.9%) and controls (13.2%). When the NSCLP cases are subdivided by sex and positive family history (Mx versus Sx), the Mx males (27.8%) as well as the total NSCLP-Mx cases (25.7%) showed significantly higher frequencies of allele *2, compared to controls (11.4% and 13.2
Objective: To further confirm the association between two IRF6 single nucleotide polymorphisms and nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate in a Chinese population.. Participants: A total of 106 nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate case trios and 129 control trios.. Intervention: Two IRF6 single nucleotide polymorphisms, rs2235371 and rs642961, were genotyped for all case and control families. Case-control analysis and family-based linkage analysis were both performed for the two single nucleotide polymorphisms.. Results: The genotype and allele frequencies of rs2235371 (odds ratio(AG+AA) (vs. GG), 0.581; 95% confidence interval, 0.345 to 0.976; P < .039) and rs642961 (odds ratio(AG+AA vs. GG), 5.389; 95% confidence interval, 2.936 to 9.893; P = 5e-08) were significantly higher in nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate patients compared with controls. There was an obvious dosage effect of allele A at rs642961. The transmission of a major allele (G) of ...
There are many variations of a cleft lip. Cleft lips may occur unilaterally or bilaterally. A unilateral cleft lip presents with only one cleft, either complete or incomplete. As with a cleft palate, a cleft lip may also be incomplete or complete. The bilateral cleft lip may also be further divided into Binderoid bilateral complete cleft lip and palate, Bilateral complete cleft lip and intact secondary palate, Bilateral incomplete cleft lip and Asymmetrical bilateral (complete/incomplete) cleft lip [6] One in four bilateral cleft lips are asymmetrical. They are incomplete on one side and complete on the other. The incomplete side of the bilateral cleft lip varies in severity and the level of severity impacts on the treatment. These lesser forms of incomplete bilateral cleft lips can be divided into micro-form, microform, and mini-microform depending on the degree of the disruption at the vermilion-cutaneous junction [6] ...

How is Unilateral Cleft Lip and Palate abbreviated? UCLP stands for Unilateral Cleft Lip and Palate. UCLP is defined as Unilateral Cleft Lip and Palate frequently.
Van der Woude syndrome (VWS) is the most common syndromic form of cleft lip and palate. It is an autosomal dominant disorder characterized by pits and/or sinuses of the lower lip, cleft lip, cleft palate and uvular anomalies. Other findings may include ankyloglossia and hypodontia. VWS1 (MIM 119300) and VWS2 (MIM 606713) are caused by mutations in the IRF6 and GRHL3 genes, respectively. IRF6 codes for interferon regulatory factor 6 and GRHL3 codes for grainyhead-like protein 3 homolog.. The Van der Woude syndrome NGS panel consists of two genes: GRHL3 and IRF6.. Copy number variation (CNV) analysis of the Van der Woude syndrome genes is also offered as a panel. Additionally, CTGT offers a comprehensive test (both NGS and CNV panels) for these genes. Panel genes are also offered as individual sequencing and deletion/duplication tests, unless otherwise indicated.. Read less ...

Mutations of human PHF8 cluster within its JmjC encoding exons and are linked to mental retardation (MR) and a cleft lip/palate phenotype. Sequence comparisons, employing structural insights, suggest that PHF8 contains the double stranded β-helix fold and ferrous iron binding residues that are present in 2-oxoglutarate-dependent oxygenases. We report that recombinant PHF8 is an Fe(II) and 2-oxoglutarate-dependent Nε-methyl lysine demethylase, which acts on histone substrates. PHF8 is selective in vitro for Nε-di- and mono-methylated lysine residues and does not accept trimethyl substrates. Clinically observed mutations to the PHF8 gene cluster in exons encoding for the double stranded β-helix fold and will therefore disrupt catalytic activity. The PHF8 missense mutation c.836C,T is associated with mild MR, mild dysmorphic features, and either unilateral or bilateral cleft lip and cleft palate in two male siblings. This mutant encodes a F279S variant of PHF8 that modifies a conserved ...
Background: Cleft lip and palate is one of the most common facial birth defects often cited as occurring in about 1 in every 1,000 births. While there are race, gender and world wide differences in this occurrence rate, it is a condition that is well recognized around the world for its prevalance. Almost everyone has seen or knows someone who has been affected by some facial cleft problem.. Despite the generic name of cleft lip and palate, it is a collection of orofacial birth defects that has a wide range of variability in how it appears. The cleft can affect one side of the lip, both sides or can cause a cleft palate only. Even in bilateral cleft lip and palate there is great variability. The cleft lip may be complete on both sides, complete on one and incomplete on the other, or incomplete on both sides. This variability in the cleft ip becomes compounded when one factors in the internal cleft palate and alveolar component which can occur variably as well.. Regardless of the type of bilateral ...

Cleft lip and palate are openings or splits in the upper lip or roof of the mouth (palate). A child can be born with a cleft lip, cleft palate, or both. Cleft lip and palate may be the only birth defects, or they may happen with other defects.. A cleft lip may be as mild as a notch of the lip. Or it may be as severe as a large opening from the lip to the nose. A cleft palate may leave an opening that goes into the nasal cavity. Cleft palate is not as noticeable as cleft lip because it is inside the mouth. The cleft may:. ...
Scientists have genetically repaired cleft lip and palate in mouse embryos in a breakthrough that could pave the way for new treatments of the common birth defects in humans. The team, from Weill Cornell Medical College, identified mutations in the Pbx family of genes that resulted in complete cleft lip, with or without cleft palate.. These genes produce proteins which have previously been identified as playing a part in skeletal and organ development, but study author Dr Licia Selleri says that their role in face shape is a new and surprising finding. They found Pbx genes regulate a signalling pathway that includes a number of proteins known to be involved in cleft lip formation. By restoring the activity of one gene, known as Wnt, which plays a prominent role in embryo development, the researchers were able to repair cleft lips in mouse embryos.. To my knowledge, this is the first time that anyone has corrected this defect in embryos, and we really show here that Wnt is a critical factor, ...

Cleft lip and cleft palate are among the most common birth defects, estimated to affect around one in 700-800 babies born in North America. Both problems result from the incomplete formation of anatomical structures (the lips and the palate, or "roof of the mouth") which develop during early pregnancy. These conditions may occur separately or together, and they can have a wide variation in severity. With proper treatment, however, in most cases the child has an excellent chance of leading a healthy, normal life.. Besides the noticeable irregularity in appearance, a cleft lip or palate can cause difficulties with feeding and speech. Both conditions are also associated with ear infections, hearing loss and dental problems. To fully address these problems, a child may require several surgical procedures, performed at different times. Thats why a team approach is often used to treat this complex condition. Members of the medical team may include an oral surgeon, a pediatric dentist, an ...

This study examined cleft lip and palate from the sociological point of view. It looked at the social aspects of a health issue by examining the social problems that may emanate from cleft lip/palate deformity. Questionnaires were administered in northern Nigeria to 32 patients between the ages of 10 and 60 who had been born with the defect. Oral interviews using the same set of questions were conducted with 18 patients with similar defects of cleft lip/palate deformity in southern Nigeria. The questionnaire method was preferred by the respondents in the north, whereas the respondents in the south preferred the interview method. Two case studies also were reviewed from the south as part of the methodology. The study revealed the predominance of the defect among the lowest income group within society. Because of the financial constraints involved in medical treatment, the defects were not attended to earlier in the patients lives until dental surgeons offered free treatment. Stigmatization and

Background: Area and volume of the pharyngeal airway in surgically treated unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP) patient: A cone beam computed tomography (CBCT) study. Context: Surgical repair of cleft causes restriction of maxillary growth and mid face but the effect of this reduced growth on volume of the pharyngeal airway has not been investigated thoroughly. Aims: The aim of the study was to assess the area, volume and smallest cross-sectional area of the pharyngeal airway in individuals with UCLP using CBCT and compare with age and sex matched noncleft controls. Settings and Design: Retrospective study. Materials and Methods: The study was carried out on 20 surgically treated UCLP patients and compared with 40 normal non cleft subjects with Class I skeletal relation within age group of 7-14 years. CBCT image processing and analysis were performed using Dolphin Imaging software (11.7 version premium; Dolphin Imaging and Management Solutions, Chatsworth, Calif) and volumetric rendering was ...

Using individual participant data from six population-based case-control studies, we conducted pooled analyses to examine maternal alcohol consumption and the risk of clefts among ,4600 infants with cleft lip only, cleft lip with cleft palate, or cleft palate only and ,10,000 unaffected controls. We examined two first-trimester alcohol measures: average number of drinks/sitting and maximum number of drinks/sitting, with five studies contributing to each analysis. Study-specific odds ratios (ORs) were estimated using logistic regression and pooled to generate adjusted summary ORs. Across studies, 0.9-3.2 % of control mothers reported drinking an average of 5+ drinks/sitting, while 1.4-23.5 % reported drinking a maximum of 5+ drinks/sitting. Compared with non-drinkers, mothers who drank an average of 5+ drinks/sitting were more likely to deliver an infant with cleft lip only (pooled OR 1.48; 95 % confidence intervals 1.01, 2.18). The estimate was higher among women who drank at this level 3+ times ...
A child who is born with a cleft lip and /or palate in the U.K. will usually have the cleft in the lip closed (operated on) at 3 months of age and the cleft in the palate closed at 6 -9 months of age. These children may also need other operations throughout childhood and into adulthood (see Cleft treatment pathway). It is not always necessary for a child with a very small cleft lip to have an operation - sometimes small lip closures are done only for cosmetic reasons. All of the parents we spoke to whose child had a cleft lip had agreed that their child should have their lip closed at approximately 3 months of age. Similarly, all parents whose child was born with a cleft palate had consented to have their childs palate closed or were making preparations for future surgery. Prior to having a cleft lip and/or palate repair it is important that the child is free from coughs and colds, chicken pox and other viral infections as the surgical team will not operate if a child is unwell. This can ...

Methods. The amniotic fluid samples from 315 healthy pregnant women (aged 22-43 years, mean 37 years; gestational age 14 to 22 weeks, mean 17 weeks) were examined. The normality of all pregnancies was confirmed at birth. The amniotic fluid samples were examined from three pregnancies (aged 36, 35, and 30 years; gestational ages 16, 18, 24 weeks) with fetal unilateral cleft lip and palate (confirmed at birth), as diagnosed by ultrasound. Lactate dehydrogenase and creatine phosphokinase were tested as "metabolic" markers ...
Background. Cleft lip is one of the most common birth defects. The surgery to correct this defect can cause moderate to severe pain. Many of the drugs to reduce pain (analgesics) used in adults can have unwanted side effects in children. The treatment of the pain associated with the surgical correction of cleft lip can therefore be a challenge. One technique that can provide pain relief for these children is known as infraorbital nerve block which involves the injection of an anaesthetic around the nerve that is responsible for the sensation of touch and pain of the upper lip.. Review question We reviewed the effectiveness of infraorbital nerve block compared with placebo (sham block) or other interventions for the control of pain in children having cleft lip surgery.. Study characteristics. We included eight studies with a total of 353 boys and girls, who ranged in age from 1 month to 13 years. These studies had been published up to June 2015. Three studies compared nerve block with sham ...
Whole-embryo culture techniques have advanced to the point where the study of normal and abnormal primary palate development in vitro is possible. The purpose of this study was to ascertain whether localized administration of tunicamycin (TM) an inhibitor of protein glycosylation, into the region of the developing primary palate would induce cleft lip in culture. Rat embryos were explanted on late day 11 of gestation and cultured with open yolk sacs for 40 h. TM was administered by implanting a sterile eyelash soaked in TM into the nasal placode region. The contralateral placode was used as the control by implanting an eyelash lacking TM. Under these conditions, TM-treated placodes were found to develop cleft lip in 14 out of 15 embryos compared to 0 for the controls. These experiments demonstrate that localized administration of TM results in cleft lip formation in whole embryo culture. The technique of localized administration of drugs and teratogens in whole embryo culture should prove useful ...
... is a separation of the parts or segments of the lip or roof of the mouth, which are usually joined together during the early weeks in the development of an unborn child. A cleft lip is a separation of the two sides of the lip and often includes the bones of the maxilla and/or the upper gum. A cleft palate is an opening in the roof of the mouth and can vary in severity. A cleft palate occurs when the two sides of the palate do not fuse as the unborn baby develops..

Cleft lip and palate are openings or splits in the upper lip or roof of the mouth (palate). A child can be born with a cleft lip, cleft palate, or both. Cleft lip and palate may be the only birth defects, or they may happen with other defects.
Cleft Lip + Palate. During early pregnancy, separate areas of the face develop individually and then join together, including the left and right sides of the roof of the mouth and lips. However, if some parts do not join properly, sections dont meet and the result is a cleft. If the separation occurs in the upper lip, the child is said to have a cleft lip.. A completely formed lip is important not only for a normal facial appearance but also for sucking and to form certain sounds made during speech. A cleft lip is a condition that creates an opening in the upper lip between the mouth and nose. It looks as though there is a split in the lip. It can range from a slight notch in the colored portion of the lip to complete separation in one or both sides of the lip extending up and into the nose. A cleft on one side is called a unilateral cleft. If a cleft occurs on both sides, it is called a bilateral cleft.. A cleft in the gum may occur in association with a cleft lip. This may range from a small ...

In England and Wales, the number of abortions performed on unborn babies with cleft lip and palate has accelerated in recent years.. Official figures show that the number of terminations for those with the condition has more than tripled, from 4 in 2012 to an all-time high of 15 in 2018.. Since 2011, 75 unborn babies have been aborted because they had a cleft lip and palate.. However, findings from a European register have revealed that abortions for cleft lip and palate can be over ten times more common than what is being reported.. Eurocat, which was set up to register congenital abnormalities across 23 countries, found that 157 unborn babies, with the condition, were aborted in England and Wales between 2006 and 2010. The Department of Health only recorded 14 such abortions.. Joan Morris, national coordinator for Eurocat and professor of medical statistics at Queen Mary, University of London, said the group also found the number of babies aborted in 2010 for Downs Syndrome was nearly double ...

A meeting was held on 9th June at the Royal College of Surgeons, London, to disseminate the findings of the Cleft Care UK study. It was hosted in partnership with the Cleft Lip and Palate Association (CLAPA) and the audience comprised a mixture of clinicians, patient representatives and some policy makers. The meeting was addressed by both Derek Alderson- President-elect, Royal College of Surgeons and Sir Bruce Keogh KBE, FRCS, FRCP.. Cleft Care UK (CCUK) was a nationwide cross-sectional survey of five year olds with unilateral cleft lip and palate to evaluate the impact of a centralised, audited multi-disciplinary model of care. Comprehensive data were collected on care and outcomes from 268 children with unilateral cleft lip and palate. Centralisation had occurred 15 years previously following The Clinical Standards Advisory Group (CSAG) survey of five year olds with cleft lip and/or palate, conducted in the mid-1990s. CSAG had shown that outcomes across a range of domains (including facial ...
Shh signaling is a master regulator of the epithelial-mesenchymal interactions that drive orofacial development, but specific targets of the pathway in upper lip development had not been identified. In this study, we leveraged a mouse model of transient in utero inhibition of the Shh signaling pathway to investigate genetic and cellular drivers of lip morphogenesis and cleft lip pathogenesis. Whole-transcriptome expression profiling identified significant downregulation of canonical Shh pathway members, as well as multiple Fox family members during the initial pathogenesis of cleft lip. The defining feature of Fox transcription factors is a Forkhead, or winged-helix, DNA-binding domain. This family includes 44 genes in the mouse genome, with each having a close human ortholog (Jackson et al., 2010). Fox genes have been identified as targets of Shh signaling in diverse developmental contexts, including the gut and central nervous system, while GLI consensus binding sites have been identified in ...
My daughter Sofia was born last November with a unilateral cleft lip and palate as a result of having a genetic disorder known as Waardenburg Syndrome. She has NO other manifestations of this syndrome, so we are really quite lucky. She also has experienced NONE of the complications frequently associated with a cleft lip/palate. I attribute this veganism. Anyway. I spent the beginning of this week in the hospital with her as she underwent the second phase of surgery - palate repair. Her lip was repaired in May of this year. The lip repair is a cosmetic procedure while the palate repair is much more invasive and involves replacing skin in the mouth to cover the existing gap ...

This cause is special to me. We are friends with a neighborhood couple who have a son who was born with cleft lip and palate. Liam is a funny, gentle, loving and hug-every-time kid. He hangs out with our kids and together the three of them are a force of nature…young boy attitudes with a laugh for every occasion. He knows he was born with cleft lip and palate and just gets on with it. Fortunately he had surgery when he was 10 weeks old and additional surgeries since. The photos below show him at 10 weeks old before surgery and his handsome face in a photo taken at 5 years old, about 2 weeks after a plastic "revision" surgery to give more symmetry to his lip and nose. He is now six years old. He will most likely require a bone graft for the missing bone in his jaw about age 8, and lots of orthodontics will follow to address crooked and missing teeth.You can see the impact of the surgery. Imagine the challenges that Liam would have in life without such a surgery. Imagine the lives of the 1 in ...
A place for older children and teenagers affected by cleft lip and/or cleft palate to communicate and share ideas. Organised by the Cleft Lip and Palate Association (UK). ...
Children born with clefting of the upper lip exhibit obvious disfigurement of the upper lip and nose. As illustrated below, primary lip surgery of the infant dramatically improves the severe deformity of the perioral and nasal region. It is widely recognized, however, that most patients require additional lip surgeries for an optimum esthetic result. Clinicians often disagree as to when this end point is reached since the decision for additional lip revision is based on subjective clinical assessments.. Facial morphology during function has a major impact on how a person is perceived in society and is known to be an important component of the esthetic outcome for cleft patients, but it has been particularly difficult to incorporate measures of lip function into the decision-making process. It is likely that the different surgical procedures for both primary lip closure and secondary lip revision could be improved if the effects of alternative surgical techniques on function were better ...

The cleft surgeon will be able to tell you at what age the left will be repaired. Do not be surprised if the operation is postponed if your child is not felt to be strong enough for the operation, or if there is another medical problem. Ask how long your baby will have to stay in the hospital. You as the parent can expect to stay in the hospital. Ask a member of the cleft team about this. You might also ask to accompany your baby to the operating theatre and recovery room. Dummies (Comforters) should be given to pacify your baby only when really necessary, as some surgeons are concerned about they effect on the healing wound following the operation. Some surgeons prefer babies to feed by spoon after the operation. If so in your case you may be requested to practice spoon-feeding prior to the operation. Other surgeons are happy for the baby to feed by bottle or breast immediately after the surgery. In some cases, the repair is unable to hold and separates. Most of these holes are small and close ...

There are numerous ways to resurface the skin, but why would we want to do this? On the surface of your skin are thousands of dead, damaged cells. The accumulation of these cells hides the vibrancy that lies beneath. Laser skin resurfacing is a method of exfoliation that can reverse the effects of aging, sun damage, and stressors such as smoking or dry climate. When the damaged upper layers of skin are removed with pulses of laser light, the underlying cells jump into action to produce increased amounts of collagen. The more collagen that is in the skin, the better support there is. The more support there is, the younger you look.. Ablative skin resurfacing is intended for noticeable results. The device and technique used combine to create a safe, controlled process of elimination - literally. In order to promote comfort, topical anesthetic is applied before treatment. This type of laser treatment will produce redness and swelling in the treatment area. We provide precise instructions for ...

The present prospective study aimed at assessing cleft lip and palate patients opinions on and the attitude towards their facial appearance, and their tendency to opt for secondary corrective facial surgery. Based on the identification of patients who were eligible for the study clinical data on these persons were collected and a questionnaire was sent out to compile the relevant data. Although a response rate of 23 of 37 invited patients may seem low, it is exactly within the range that can be expected from the current literature. Response rates of approx. 58% to questionnaires received by surface mail have to be expected [18]. The comparison between the patients who were eligible for the study and the patients who finally returned the questionnaire revealed that there were no statistically significant differences between the 2 cohorts. Consequently, it can be assumed that the results were not biased in a pronounced way by the portion of non-responders. It can be assumed that the bias ...
I have been away from my computer for a number of days and was thrilled to find this series of posts about Kims surgery when I returned. Thank you SOOOO much for this post especially, Kim. I have 11 and 9 year old daughters and soon, (one month from tomorrow) we will be meeting our 4 year old son, all born in China all with unilateral cleft lip and palate. My 11 year old in particular struggles with accepting herself and how she looks. She really is beautiful, but it is so hard for her to believe that. She is so looking forward to the day when she can have surgery to reduce her lip scar. Thanks so much for giving us a glimpse of what that will involve and more importantly, thanks for sharing your thoughts about dealing with cleft issues. It was a real blessing for her to read about your feelings and how you have managed questions and comments from others. Last year she had bone graft surgery to replace the missing bone in her upper jaw. Unfortunately, her body rejected the graft, so both she ...
Patients who have cleft lip or palate face dental issues regarding the number, shape, size, and position of their teeth. Often times children with a cleft require more dental work to help correct teeth that may have come in malformed or malpositioned. Teeth do not come in normally and require the work of multiple specialists to correct the problem.. An orthodontist will likely be brought in as well as an oral surgeon, maxillofacial prosthodontist, and a general dentist. This unique team will work together to create teeth that look and function normally for the patient. Many patients with cleft have issues eating and speaking. A maxillofacial prosthodontist uses artificial teeth and dental appliances to help with the speaking and eating functionality of teeth. Many procedures and trips to the dentist and doctor go into repairing a cleft. Dental extractions are often needed as well as braces to help align the teeth. It can seem daunting to patients and to their loved ones but all the work helps to ...
Cleft lip and palate are two of the most common birth defects worldwide today. Find out what age is the best time to repair these areas.
Vidant Health - Cleft lip and palate are openings or splits in the upper lip or roof of the mouth. They range from being mild to severe.
A cleft lip is formed in the top of the lip as either a small gap or an indentation in the lip and may continue into the nose. If the cleft affects the palate structure of the mouth it is referred to as a cleft palate.
Cleft lip is a relatively common birth defect that can be surgically repaired, and new research suggests that parents don t have to worry about long-term health

Van der Woude syndrome (VDWS) is a genetic disorder characterized by the combination of lower lip pits, cleft lip with or without cleft palate, and cleft palate alone (CP). The frequency of orofacial clefts ranges from 1:1000 to 1:500 births worldwide, and there are more than 400 syndromes that involve cleft lip with or without cleft palate. VWS is distinct from other clefting syndromes due to the combination of cleft lip and palate (CLP) and CP within the same family. Other features frequently associated with VWS include hypodontia in 10-81% of cases, narrow arched palate, congenital heart disease, heart murmur and cerebral abnormalities, syndactyly of the hands, polythelia, ankyloglossia, and adhesions between the upper and lower gum pads. The association between lower lip pits and cleft lip and/or palate was first described by Anne Van der Woude in 1954. The worldwide disease incidence ranges from 1:100,000 to 1:40,000. Van der Woude syndrome is inherited as an autosomal dominant disease ...

Botulinum toxin type A (Botox; Allergan, Inc., Irvine, Calif) is widely used for facial rejuvenation and many other medical indications. It induces chemodenervation through its action on the presynaptic neuron, preventing release of acetylcholine, which leads to functional denervation of striated muscle for 2 to 6 months after injection. The use of botulinum toxin injection to reduce the facial scar is logical because this could reduce the tensile distracting force of the upper lip caused by the orbicularis oris muscle pull. Tollefson has demonstrate that botulinum toxin injection has decrease lip tension after primary lip repair in 3 children at 3-6 months of age The main aim of this randomized trial is to compare whether post-operative peri-surgical-injection of botulinum toxin into bilateral orbicularis oris muscles can improve scar formation for both primary and secondary cleft lip surgery ...

People with obstructive sleep apnea (OSA) have disrupted sleep and low blood oxygen levels. When obstructive sleep apnea occurs, the tongue is sucked against the back of the throat. This blocks the upper airway and airflow stops. When the oxygen level in the brain becomes low enough, the sleeper partially awakens, the obstruction in the throat clears, and the flow of air starts again, usually with a loud gasp.. Repeated cycles of decreased oxygenation lead to very serious cardiovascular problems. Additionally, these individuals suffer from excessive daytime sleepiness, depression, and loss of concentration.. Some patients have obstructions that are less severe called Upper Airway Resistance Syndrome (UARS). In either case, the individuals suffer many of the same symptoms.. The first step in treatment resides in recognition of the symptoms and seeking appropriate consultation. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons offer consultation and treatment options.. In addition to a detailed history, the doctors ...
Zofran during pregnancy was evaluated by researchers from the Harvard School of Public Health, the Massachusetts Department of Public Health, the Slone Epidemiology Center at Boston University, and the National Center on Birth Defects and Development Disabilities. They searched specifically for several of the mostcommon birth defects, including cleft palate and cleft lip. Like the study analyzing the risk of heart defects in a Zofran pregnancy, the results from the data in this study were clear and statistically significant: Zofran increases the risk of cleft palates.. Infants born to women taking Zofran early during pregnancy are at 237% above the baseline risk for cleft palate. If you used Zofran during pregnancy, especially during the first trimester of pregnancy, and had a child with cleft palate, this study indicates that Zofran likely caused the birth defect.. The researchers did not stop there, but rather studied the risk of alternatives to Zofran for morning sickness during pregnancy. ...
Women who have epilepsy and who take the anticonvulsant diphenylhydantoin (DPH) during pregnancy produce infants that have an abnor-high incidence of cleft palate and other anomalies. DPH will induce cleft palates in laboratory mice exposed to the drug while in utero. It has been suggested that DPH may exert its teratogenic effect by interfering with Vitamin D metabolism. We tested the hypothesis that decreased concentrations of vitamin D could be secondary to treatment with DPH and could be related to the induction of cleft palates in mice. To do this we treated groups of pregnant mice with DPH or the combination of DPH and 25 hydroxycholecalciferol (25 hydroxy Vitamin D3) during the critical period of palatogenesis. Treatment with 25 hydroxycholecalciferol did not decrease the incidence of DPH-induced cleft palate. In fact, fetuses from mice treated with DPH and 25 hydroxycholecalciferol had an increased incidence of cleft palate as compared to fetuses from dams treated only with DPH. ...
