    Collapse Cleft Lip Repair: Measure Twice Cut Once

    "The first time is the best time."

    Favorable initial cleft lip and nose repair is critical in providing patients with optimal long-term form and function. Current "cut as you go" techniques of cleft lip repair rely heavily on the abilities and experience of surgeons, and the myriad of variations reflects the free-form nature of those repairs. The lack of more defined methods can make cleft lip repair intimidating for new surgeons and can result in variability of outcomes for more experienced surgeons. The "Anatomic Subunit Approximation Approach" to cleft lip repair relies upon anatomic landmarks and anatomic subunits in the design of a cleft lip repair. It involves careful measurement and includes ways to check and recheck the design to help surgeons achieve favorable form. Studies have demonstrated optimal results without the learning curve that other techniques require. Because the approach is based on landmarks, it inherently adapts to all presentations. Although the technique has been widely adopted, the many landmarks and measurements make it seem complex. The purpose of this session is to describe the Anatomic Subunit Approximation approach to cleft lip repair and demonstrate how it adapts to various presentations to produce favorable results.

    We will use step-by-step explanations to illustrate and clarify the approach. We will use case examples that span the spectrum of presentations from complete to microform clefts. We will describe ways to verify and adapt the repair for final tailoring so that there is some flexibility in final repair. We will use a combination of photos, videos, illustrations, and discussions to ensure that attendees benefit from the session. Even if more experienced surgeons do not adopt the technique, an understanding of the approach can help with the non-overt landmarking that occurs with cut-as-you-go repairs. Careful planning makes for accurate and efficient repair and that ultimately benefits our patients!

    Collapse Contemporary Management of the Alveolar Cleft in Patients with Cleft Lip and Palate

    Patients with cleft lip and palate require a multidisciplinary approach to care and management of the alveolar cleft in these patients is no exception. While some centers perform gingivoperiosteoplasty, or even bone grafting, at the time of lip or palate repair, the majority perform alveolar bone grafting in the mixed dentition phase before the eruption of the permanent canine. Yet, not all alveolar clefts are the same and some require novel strategies to achieve successful outcomes. The purpose of this presentation is to discuss the multidisciplinary management of the patient with alveolar cleft, including timing, preoperative orthodontic preparation, and surgical technique, with emphasis placed on clinical cases.

    Collapse Implementing a Standardized Speech Outcome Assessment Protocol

    This session will provide an overview of the implementation of a systematic protocol that teams can adapt to measure speech outcomes in children with cleft palate. Initial focus will address techniques for optimal data collection and storage, including a suggested speech protocol and tips for obtaining quality speech recordings. Opportunities to use this data will be discussed. Time will be spent exploring the differences between quality improvement projects and research, with highlighted examples of how speech data can be used for both. HIPAA considerations and IRB requirements will be addressed. Presenters will share their experiences of collecting and using speech outcome data within busy clinical settings.

    Collapse The Buccal Flap Approach for Palate Reconstruction: Advanced Course

    The challenge for the cleft palate reconstructive surgeon is to successfully repair every type and anatomical variation of cleft palate. Presently, the vast majority of surgeons use single pattern repairs which are highly inflexible and may only work well on certain anatomic presentations. Many surgeons revert to older, more growth restricting techniques on complete or wide clefts. This leads to variability of success based on the width or type of the cleft. This Buccal Flap workshop incorporates of new videos and the lessons learned from the previous workshops. It is intended to change the fundamental way we approach reconstruction of the palate, using the embryonic approach in primary repairs replacing the deficient tissue with similar functioning tissue (the buccal flap) and to improve the outcome of Palate reconstruction in secondary repairs, by adding the missing tissue necessary to achieve success.
