1 Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Kyoto University Graduate School of Medicine, Kyoto, Japan.

Background:: Congenital midfacial hypoplasia often requires intensive treatments and is a typical condition for the Binder phenotype and syndromic craniosynostosis. The growth trait of the midfacial skeleton during the early fetal period has been assumed to be critical for such an anomaly. However, previous embryological studies using 2-dimensional analyses and specimens during the late fetal period have not been sufficient to reveal it. Read More

What We Do: Greater Palatine Medializing Foraminal Osteotomy for Repair of the Wide Cleft Palate.

Cleft Palate Craniofac J 2019 Feb 12:1055665619829386. Epub 2019 Feb 12.

1 Birmingham Children's Hospital, Birmingham, United Kingdom.

Wide cleft palates (>15-mm gap) present a number of challenges to the surgeon tasked with their repair ( Bardach, 1999 ). Eliminating the need for secondary surgery due to fistula formation can reduce additional anesthetic and scarring risks and optimize early speech development. Greater palatine foraminal osteotomy is a useful surgical adjunct that allows additional medial movement of oral mucoperiosteal flaps to aid in tension-free closure of the oral layer. Read More

Speech Phenotyping in Unaffected Family Members of Individuals With Nonsyndromic Cleft Lip With or Without Palate.

Cleft Palate Craniofac J 2019 Jan 29:1055665618823936. Epub 2019 Jan 29.

7 Plastic and Maxillofacial Surgery, Royal Children's Hospital, Parkville, VIC, Australia.

Objective:: Subclinical phenotypes of nonsyndromic cleft lip with or without cleft palate (CL ± P) may be identified from clinically "unaffected" relatives and could be associated with specific cleft-related gene mutations. It has been hypothesized that velopharyngeal insufficiency (VPI) may be a subclinical phenotype of interest in this population, but this has not been explored quantitatively with appropriate control cohorts. The aim of this case-control study was to compare VPI in at-risk clinically unaffected relatives of individuals with nonsyndromic CL ± P with a low-risk matched normative Australian cohort.

Intraoral Premaxillary Distraction in a Patient With Maxillary Retrognathic Cleft Lip and Palate: A Case Report.

Cleft Palate Craniofac J 2018 Nov 19:1055665618813084. Epub 2018 Nov 19.

1 Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery, Oral Science Research Institute, Yonsei University College of Dentistry, Seoul, South Korea.

Patients with cleft lip and palate sometimes have a retruded maxilla. Here, we describe the case of a young man in whom crowding of the maxillary teeth and an anteroposterior discrepancy of the maxilla were resolved by premaxillary distraction osteogenesis (DO) using 3 individual intraoral distractors. Our experience in this patient confirms that premaxillary DO with 3 intraoral distractors and preoperative simulation can achieve stable maxillary advancement and arch expansion without impairing velopharyngeal incompetence.

Novel De Novo EFTUD2 Mutations in 2 Cases With MFDM, Initially Suspected to Have Alternative Craniofacial Diagnoses.

Cleft Palate Craniofac J 2018 Oct 21:1055665618806379. Epub 2018 Oct 21.

3 Craniofacial Team, Children's Hospital, New Orleans, LA, USA.

We report 2 cases of mandibulofacial dysostosis with microcephaly (MFDM) with different and novel de novo mutations in the elongation factor Tu GTP binding domain containing 2 gene. Both cases were initially thought to have alternative disorders but were later correctly diagnosed through whole-exome sequencing. These cases expand upon our knowledge of the phenotypic spectrum in patients with MFDM, which will aid in defining the full phenotype of this disorder and increase awareness of this condition.
