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] ...

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.

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

The presence of unilateral cleft lip is one of the most common congenital deformities. A broad spectrum of variations in clinical presentation exists.
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.

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 ...
Scandcleft randomised trials of primary surgery for unilateral cleft lip and palate: 3. Descriptive study of postoperative nursing care following first stage cleft closure
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 ...
Cleft Lip and/or Palate 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.. For more detailed information, please download our free booklet, A Guide to Understanding Cleft Lip & Palate.. ...
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 and cleft palate are two common but markedly different birth defects that affect about one in every 700 newborns. Both can be corrected by surgery at our Surrey Dental office.
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 ...
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 ...

Cleft lip and cleft palate, also known as orofacial cleft, is a group of conditions that includes cleft lip (CL), cleft palate (CP), and both together (CLP). A cleft lip contains an opening in the upper lip that may extend into the nose. The opening may be on one side, both sides, or in the middle. A cleft palate is when the roof of the mouth contains an opening into the nose. These disorders can result in feeding problems, speech problems, hearing problems, and frequent ear infections. Less than half the time the condition is associated with other disorders. Cleft lip and palate are the result of tissues of the face not joining properly during development. As such, they are a type of birth defect. The cause is unknown in most cases. Risk factors include smoking during pregnancy, diabetes, obesity, an older mother, and certain medications (such as some used to treat seizures). Cleft lip and cleft palate can often be diagnosed during pregnancy with an ultrasound exam. A cleft lip or palate can be ...
Genetic variations in the detoxification enzyme glutathione S-transferase P1 (GSTP1) may modify the teratogenicity of lifestyles, such as smoking. We investigated the role of the I105V polymorphism in GSTP1, parental periconception smoking, and their interaction with nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate (CL/P) risk in the offspring. The GSTP1 I105V polymorphisms were determined in Dutch non-consanguineous Caucasians comprising of 155 CL/P triads (mother, father, child) and 195 control triads. The analyses were also carried out on complete triads only (n=69 CL/P and n=95 controls). Transmission disequilibrium testing and logistic regression analyses were performed. Neither maternal nor paternal smoking increased CL/P risk; odds ratios (OR): 1.2, 95 confidence intervals (CI)=0.7-2.0 and OR: 1.0, 95% CI=0.6-1.6, respectively. Carriership of the polymorphic Val105 allele in mothers may increase CL/P risk, OR: 1.5, 95% CI=0.96-2.5. Children homozygous for the Val105 allele may show an ...
Across the world, cleft palate, cleft lip or both is a condition that affects one in every 700 babies. Considered as one of the most common defects children suffer from at birth, the condition often requires special care from various health professionals due to the challenging medical, dental, surgical, and even social factors that are involved in the treatment process.. Understanding cleft lip and cleft palate. Cleft palate and cleft lip require surgery for treatment. In most cases, a child with a cleft palate will have a cleft lip too. A cleft lip occurs when the tissues of the nose and the upper jaw fail to join together during fetal development. As a result, a split in the lip occurs. Generally, cleft lips do not cause health issues.. On the other hand, cleft palate happened when the palate or the roof of the mouth fails to develop properly during pregnancy. As a result, an opening is left that could go through as far as the nasal cavity. The problem could affect the hard palate or even the ...
Cleft lip or palate and lower lip pits are typical features of the autosomal dominantly inherited Van der Woude syndrome. Limb defects have not been reported in this syndrome so far. A girl with a unilateral complete cleft lip and palate, bilateral lower lip pits, and amniotic deformities of all four limbs is reported and the possibility of chance occurrence of cleft lip and palate, lower lip pits, and limb defects is discussed.. ...
The Doctors Medical Library. Health and Healing Information. Physician, Health care help, A cleft lip is the presence of one or two vertical fissures (clefts) in the upper lip. The cleft lip can be on one side only (unilateral) or on both sides (bilateral). The condition results from failure of the normal process of fusion of the lip to come to completion during embryonic life. Cleft lip is one of the most common physical birth defects. On the average, one baby per 1,000 is born with a cleft lip. Cleft palate is an opening in the roof of the mouth (the palate) due to a failure of the palatal shelves to come fully together from either side of the mouth and fuse, as they normally should, during embryonic development. The opening in the palate permits communication between the nasal passages and the mouth. Surgery is needed to close the palate. Cleft palate is a common physical birth defects, although not as common as cleft lip. About one baby in 2,000 is born with cleft palate versus one baby in 1

Afr. j. child health [online]. 2014, vol.8, n.4, pp.157-159. ISSN 1999-7671. http://dx.doi.org/10.7196/SAJCH.693.. BACKGROUND: A cleft lip (CL) is a congenital abnormality resulting from failure of union of the medial and nasal prominences with the maxillary prominence during embryonic development. CL may be classified as incomplete, complete, unilateral, bilateral or median. It may be associated with a cleft alveolus or a cleft palate. Definitive correction of a cleft lip is by surgery. In most African settings, the birth of a cleft lip and cleft palate (CLP) baby is associated with witchcraft and ancestral spirits. The parents, particularly mothers, are stigmatised. OBJECTIVE: To repair CLs in neonates with difficulties in breastfeeding. METHODS: Non-syndromic term neonates referred to Polokwane Mankweng Hospital Complex (PMHC) from primary ...
Cleft lip and cleft palate are two common but markedly different birth defects that affect about one in every 700 newborns. These developmental deformities occur in the first trimester of a womans pregnancy; cleft lip in week seven, and cleft palate in week nine. Cleft lip and cleft palate occur simultaneously in about half of all cases, and separately in approximately a quarter of all cases.. A cleft lip is essentially a separation of the two sides of the lip. In many cases, this separation will include the bone and gum of the upper jaw. A cleft palate occurs when the sides of the palate fail to fuse as the fetus is developing, which results in an opening in the roof of the mouth.. The cleft deformities are categorized according to their location in the mouth and the size of the defect.. Unilateral Incomplete: A cleft on only one side of the mouth that does not extend as far as the nostril.. Unilateral Complete: A cleft on only one side of the mouth that extends into the corresponding ...
Van der Woude syndrome is the most common form of syndromic orofacial clefting, accounting for 1-2% of all patients with cleft lip and/or cleft palate. Van der Woude and popliteal pterygium syndromes are caused by mutations in IRF6, but phenotypic variability within and among families with either syndrome suggests that other genetic factors contribute to the phenotypes. The aim of this study was to identify common variants acting as genetic modifiers of IRF6 as well as genotype-phenotype correlations based on mutation type and location. We identified an association between mutations in the DNA-binding domain of IRF6 and limb defects (including pterygia). Although we did not detect formally significant associations with the genes tested, borderline associations suggest several genes that could modify the VWS phenotype, including FOXE1, TGFB3, and TFAP2A. Some of these genes are hypothesized to be part of the IRF6 gene regulatory network and may suggest additional genes for future study when ...
The exact cause of cleft lip and cleft palate is not completely understood. Cleft lip and/or cleft palate are caused by multiple genes inherited from both parents, as well as environmental factors that scientists do not yet fully understand. When a combination of genes and environmental factors cause a condition, the inheritance is called multifactorial (many factors contribute to the cause). Because genes are involved, the chance for a cleft lip and/or cleft palate to happen again in a family is increased, depending on how many people in the family have a cleft lip and/or cleft palate. If parents without clefts have a baby with a cleft, the chance for them to have another baby with a cleft ranges from 2 to 8 percent. If a parent has a cleft, but no children have a cleft, the chance to have a baby with a cleft is 4 to 6 percent. If a parent and a child have a cleft, the chance is even greater for a future child to be born with a cleft. Genetic consultation is suggested.. ...
Cleft lip with or without cleft palate (CL/P) is among the most common congenital craniofacial defects. The etiology is complex and both genetic and environmental factors have been implicated. CL/P can be syndromic or nonsyndromic. Connective Tissue Gene Tests cleft lip, cleft palate and related disorders panel focuses on disorders in which CL/P is a major finding. The cleft lip, cleft palate and related disorders NGS panel consists of seventeen genes: BMP4, COL2A1, COL11A1, COL11A2, COL9A1, COL9A2, COL9A3, FOXE1, GRHL3, IRF6, MSX1, NECTIN1, SATB2, SUMO1, TBX22, TGDS and TP63.. Copy number variation (CNV) analysis of the cleft lip, cleft palate and related disorders panel 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.. ...
Epigenetic data could help identify risk factors for orofacial clefts, either by revealing a causal role for epigenetic mechanisms in causing clefts or by capturing information about causal genetic or environmental factors. Given the evidence that different subtypes of orofacial cleft have distinct aetiologies, we explored whether children with different cleft subtypes showed distinct epigenetic profiles. In whole-blood samples from 150 children from the Cleft Collective cohort study, we measured DNA methylation at over 450,000 sites on the genome. We then carried out epigenome-wide association studies (EWAS) to test the association between methylation at each site and cleft subtype (cleft lip only (CLO) n = 50; cleft palate only (CPO) n = 50; cleft lip and palate (CLP) n = 50). We also compared methylation in the blood to methylation in the lip or palate tissue using genome-wide data from the same 150 children and conducted an EWAS of CLO compared to CLP in lip tissue. We found four genomic regions in
The aim of this study was to investigate the prevalence of tooth agenesis, microdontia, and tooth malformation among non-syndromic oral cleft patients and their potential association with cleft type and gender. Intraoral records and radiographs of 154 patients (97 males and 57 females) were examined. The variables assessed were tooth agenesis, microdontia, dental malformations, and cleft types. The statistics included chi-square and Fishers exact tests as well as logistic regression to assess any mutual effects of gender and cleft type on the dental variables. Tooth agenesis occurred in 50% of the sample and microdontia in 18%. Non-statistically significant odds ratios for the association of gender and cleft type with tooth agenesis were obtained. Tooth agenesis was substantially higher at the unilateral right CL + P and the bilateral CL + P in quadrant 1 and at the unilateral left CL + P and bilateral CL + P in quadrant 2. It was also higher, at the isolated cleft palate (CP) in quadrants 3 and 4.
Cleft lip (cheiloschisis) and cleft palate (palatoschisis) are among the most common birth defects affecting children in North America. The incomplete formation of the upper lip (cleft lip) or roof of the mouth (cleft palate) can occur individually, or both defects may occur together. The conditions can vary in severity and may involve one or both sides of the face. A cleft, or separation of the upper lip and/or the roof of the mouth, occurs very early in the development of your unborn child. During foetal development, certain components of the upper lip and roof of the mouth fail to form normally. Cleft lip and cleft palate repair is a type of plastic surgery to correct this abnormal development both to restore function and to restore a more normal appearance. Most clefts can be repaired through specialized plastic surgery techniques, improving your childs ability to eat, speak, hear and breathe, and to restore a more normal appearance and function. ...

Nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate (CL/P) and nonsyndromic cleft palate only (CPO) are common congenital anomalies with significant medical, psychological, social, and economic ramifications. Both CL/P and CPO are examples of complex genetic traits. There exists sufficient evidence to hypothesize that disease loci for CL/P and CPO can be identified by a candidate-gene linkage-disequilibrium (LD) strategy. Candidate genes for clefting, including TGFA, BCL3, DLX2, MSX1, and TGFB3, were screened for LD with either CL/P or CPO in a predominantly Caucasian population, with both case-control- and nuclear-family-based approaches. Previously reported LD for TGFA with both CL/P and CPO could not be confirmed, except in CL/P patients with a positive family history. Also, in contrast to previous studies, no LD was found between BCL3 and either CL/P or CPO. Significant LD was found between CL/P and both MSX1 and TGFB3 and between CPO and MSX1, suggesting that these genes are involved in the

Background: Questions remain about the effectiveness, dose, and timing of folic acid in preventing orofacial clefts. Case-control studies report conflicting results. There have been no cohort studies of orofacial clefts and the use of folic acid without other vitamins.. Methods: In a prospective cohort of 240,244 women enrolled between 1993 and 1995 in 1 northern and 2 southern provinces in China, we examined the risk of nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate (CL/P) and cleft palate alone (CP) in relation to maternal use of 400 mu g of folic acid without other vitamins.. Results: Daily use of 400 mu g of folic acid without other vitamins, started before the last menstrual period (LMP), was associated with reduced risk of CL/P with adjusted rate ratio (aRR) of 0.69 (95% confidence interval = 0.55-0.87). The greatest reduction in risk was observed in the north among daily users who began taking folic acid pills before LMP (aRR = 0.21 [0.10-0.44]); in the south there was marginal ...

Feeding tends to be the biggest struggle for babies born with a cleft lip or cleft palate. It can be a challenge to feed a baby from breast or bottle. There are special bottles designed for babies with clefts to help them create the suction necessary for feeding.. Most babies with clefts have surgery to correct them before their first birthday. This timeframe often makes further surgery unnecessary, but complex clefts may need more than one.. The surgery closes the gaps in tissue, which in turn can improve any side effects a baby faced as a result of her cleft. She still may benefit from speech-language therapy or feeding help, depending on her age and how severe her cleft was.. Knowledge about and treatment for cleft lip and cleft palate have come a long way. Babies born with either or both conditions are often able to do the same things as their peers; many of them even grow to have barely noticeable scars or evidence of surgery.. If your baby has a cleft lip or cleft palate, your pediatrician ...
Cleft lip and Cleft palate is a birth defect in the roof of the mouth, or palate. A cleft lip creates an opening in the upper lip between the nose and the mouth whereas a cleft palate occurs when the roof of the mouth does not form completely. These changes occur when the lip elements fail to fuse during fetal development. Over 5,000 infants are born each year in the United States with cleft in the lip or palate. Studies reveal the cause of this disorder as a combination of genetic and environmental factors.. Treatment ...
nectin 1 Promotes cell-cell contacts by forming homophilic or heterophilic trans-dimers. Heterophilic interactions have been detected between PVRL1/nectin-1 and PVRL3/nectin-3 and between PVRL1/nectin-1 and PVRL4/nectin-4. Defects in PVRL1 are the cause of ectodermal dysplasia Margarita Island type (EDMI); also known as Zlotogora-Ogur syndrome, cleft lip/palate-ectodermal dysplasia syndrome (CLPED1) or ectodermal dysplasia 4. Ectodermal dysplasia defines a heterogeneous group of disorders due to abnormal development of two or more ectodermal structures. EDMI is an autosomal recessive syndrome characterized by the association of cleft lip/palate, ectodermal dysplasia (sparse short and dry scalp hair, sparse eyebrows and eyelashes), and partial syndactyly of the fingers and/or toes. Two thirds of the patients do not manifest oral cleft but present with abnormal teeth and nails. Defects in PVRL1 are the cause of non-syndromic orofacial cleft type 7 (OFC7). Non-syndromic orofacial cleft is a common ...
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 ...

We sought to test the most significant MTHFD1L polymorphisms for an association with risk of cleft in an Irish cohort. This required the development of a new melting curve assay to genotype the technically challenging MTHFD1L triallelic deletion/insertion polymorphism (rs3832406). Melting curve analysis was used to genotype the MTHFD1L triallelic deletion/insertion polymorphism (rs3832406) and a Single Nucleotide Polymorphism rs17080476 in an Irish cohort consisting of 981 Irish case-parent trios and 1,008 controls. Tests for association with nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate and cleft palate included case/control analysis, mother/control analysis and Transmission Disequilibrium Tests of case-parent trios. A successful melting curve genotyping assay was developed for the deletion/insertion polymorphism (rs3832406). The TDT analysis initially showed that the rs3832406
Cleft lip and cleft palate occur early in pregnancy when the sides of the lip and the roof of the mouth do not fuse together as they should. A child can have cleft lip, cleft palate, or both. Most babies born with a cleft are otherwise healthy.
IRF6-related disorders span a spectrum from isolated cleft lip and palate and Van der Woude syndrome (VWS) at the mild end to popliteal pterygium syndrome (PPS) at the more severe end. Individuals with VWS show one or more of the following anomalies: Congenital, usually bilateral, paramedian lower-lip fistulae (pits) or sometimes small mounds with a sinus tract leading from a mucous gland of the lip. Cleft lip (CL). Cleft palate (CP). Note: Cleft lip with or without cleft palate (CL±P) is observed about twice as often as CP only. Submucous cleft palate (SMCP). The PPS phenotype includes the following: CL±P. Fistulae of the lower lip. Webbing of the skin extending from the ischial tuberosities to the heels. In males: bifid scrotum and cryptorchidism. In females: hypoplasia of the labia majora. Syndactyly of fingers and/or toes. Anomalies of the skin around the nails. A characteristic pyramidal fold of skin overlying the nail of the hallux (almost pathognomonic). In some non-classic forms of ...

Cleft lip and palate is one of the most common birth abnormalities (ranging 1/500-1/800 births). This condition occurs when developing facial blocks of tissue fail to fully connect and fuse, thereby leaving a Cleft or slit of the lip, nose, upper jaw, and palate. At times a cleft lip can occur alone; a cleft palate can occur alone, or any combination of cleft lip (complete, incomplete) and cleft palate (soft and/or hard) can present. Additionally, the clefts can be on one or both sides.. With cleft lip repair and cleft palate repair, we can properly restore the lip, mouth, oral, palatal function as well as provide a normal, pleasing physical appearance. Specialized and highly individualized techniques can help enhance a persons ability to talk, eat, and even breathe. Cleft lip and palate surgery can help restore normal speech, promote normal growth of the teeth and the upper jaw, and even enhance the development of both the auditory canal and Eustachian tube for normal hearing.. We have ...
Ocular coloboma is an excavation of ocular structures that occurs due to abnormal fusion of the embryonic optic fissure. Further, cleft lip/palate (CL/P), a congenital midline abnormality, is caused by a defect in the fusion of the frontonasal, maxillary, and mandibular prominences. No study has reported the association between these two phenotypes in the absence of other systemic abnormalities. We present a case of ocular coloboma along with CL/P and without other neurological abnormalities. A 5-year-old Asian boy presented with decreased visual acuity in his right eye. Physical examination revealed no abnormal findings except CL/P, which was surgically corrected at the age of 9 months. Best-corrected visual acuity was 20/60 in the right eye and 20/25 in the left eye. Anterior segment examination revealed iris coloboma in the inferior quadrant of his right eye as well as a large inferonasal optic disc and chorioretinal coloboma in the same eye. He was prescribed glasses based on his cycloplegic

Cleft lip and palate is a complex, multifactorial and relatively common craniofacial disorder, which arises because of disrupted facial development in the embryo. The manifestations of this condition can be life-long and associated with significant morbidity. In the last decade, progress has been made in our understanding of how clefts of the lip and palate arise in human populations, and laboratory studies are beginning to elucidate the molecular mechanisms that control development of the lip and palate. In addition, advances in surgical and medical care, and long-term rehabilitation are improving outcome and quality of life for affected individuals. Written by international experts in their respective fields, this publication covers in detail the epidemiology and genetic basis of cleft lip and palate, the developmental biology of lip and palate formation and provides current concepts in the management of patients affected by this condition. Thus, the book provides a contemporary overview of ...

Facial aging may seem to occur at a progressively faster pace the older you get. One day, your jaw line appears smooth and sharp, and the next, small pockets of fat have stolen the definition that gave you a youthful appearance. Once the signs of aging are noticed, all they seem to do is compound one on top of another. Sure, you can slow down the process by injecting Botox into the upper face and dermal fillers into lines and creases around the nose and mouth. However, there is something to be said about the meticulous nature of the facelift. Here, we will look at 4 distinct concerns that can be beautifully corrected in one procedure.. The Sagging Jowls. Sagging jowls are a primary age-related concern that both men and women find frustrating. The problem occurs at the point when enough elasticity has been lost to allow fat to accumulate along the jaw line. Technically, fatty deposits settle just around the mandible ligament. A facelift corrects this problem by releasing the ligament and ...
Eyelid rejuvenation is a major step toward maintaining a youthful appearance. The common use of dermal fillers and neuromodulators like Botox have made it easier to manage age, but there are still instances in which the surgical removal and lift of the skin around the eyes is the best way to achieve the desired outcome. If you are in the process of planning your blepharoplasty surgery, we imagine youve got a lot on your mind. Here, we offer a short shopping list to ensure you have what you need for a comfortable recovery.. ...

Kayden was born on December 21, 2007 at 1:24 a.m. He was born with a bilateral cleft lip and palate, Dilated Cardiomyopathy, and what was thought to be Ebsteins Anomaly. He stayed in the NICU for 2 weeks after birth, he was on oxygen for the first couple days of his life. At a month old, Kayden wouldnt keep his formula down of course I worried, so we ended up at the ER that night to figure out what was wrong. The doctors had no idea, finally they admitted him into the hospital and early the next morning they did an ultrasound on his tummy. He had pyloric stenosis, which if you dont what it is its a hole that helps your food digest and go through to your stomach, his was too small so they had to do surgery to make the hole bigger. He did well through the surgery, of course I worried the whole time he was in the OR. Anyways Kayden had a lip adhesion done in April 2008 at 4 months old, this was the first step to repair his cleft lip/palate. In October 2008, at 10 months old he had surgery to ...
