BRAVO RIVERA, Lorena et al. Presurgical orthopedics in children with cleft palate: Case Report . Odontoestomatología [online]. 2015, vol.17, n.25, pp.53-59. ISSN 0797-0374.

Abstract Cleft lip and palate requires presurgical orthopedics to achieve the normal alignment of the cleft maxillary segments prior to Primary Cheiloplasty. Clinical case A male newborn treated at the Hospital Regional of Concepción diagnosed with complete bilateral cleft lip and palate treated with presurgical orthopedics. Evolution was observed after the first year, as well as the advantages of the Grayson technique and the interaction of the participating multidisciplinary team. Conclusion. Preoperative orthopedic treatment is effective in the rehabilitation of cleft children, as it is a contributing factor to breastfeeding and child feeding. It also makes it possible to move the affected bony and soft tissue elements to a position which is anatomically favorable at an early stage. This results in better surgical outcomes: both aesthetic and functional. Primary cheiloplasty is thus facilitated by a reduction in the tension of soft tissues and of the width of the alveolar cleft palate
