VPI and Cleft

Description

Cleft lip and palate care provided by otolaryngologist is becoming increasingly more prevalent. The care of these patients requires a multidisciplinary approach that involves multiple team members including audiologists, dentists, geneticists, speech pathologists, and otolaryngologists. Each facet of the care of these patients is complex and interdependent. Part of the care of these patients involves communicating advances in the care of these patients.

The main focus of this special issue will be to provide an opportunity for specialists in every aspect of the care of cleft lip and palate field to present novel research. We hope to include an international perspective of cleft care from ear disease, speech development, dental care, surgical techniques, and novel therapies. Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Chronic ear condition in cleft patients
  • Revision ear surgery in cleft patients
  • Hearing outcomes in cleft patients
  • Early speech intervention in cleft patients
  • Dental rehabilitation in cleft patients
  • Management of the airway of Pierre Robin syndrome
  • Mandibular distraction in Pierre Robin syndrome
  • Primary bone grafting
  • Delayed bone grafting
  • Palate repair techniques
  • Complication of palate repair
  • Assessment of velopharyngeal function
  • Surgery for velopharyngeal insufficiency
  • Complications of velopharyngeal surgery
  • Obstructive sleep apnea management after velopharyngeal surgery
