Management of Cleft Lip and Palate in the Developing World

Genre: Medical

This book explores the complex issues surrounding the management of cleft lip and palate in the Developing World, and aims to raise the profile of a condition commonly considered to be of only cosmetic importance in countries where infant and child mortality rates are high. It provides information and guidelines to three groups: those in the Developing World setting up programmes of cleft lip and palate care, and clinicians from developed countries delivering care in that context, as well as clinicians in the Developing World itself. The book is multidisciplinary, demonstrating the role of every member of the team, not just the surgeon, and includes contributions from charity organisations which support these cleft lip and palate programmes. Each area of clinical practice is covered, comparing typical care in developed countries with that in the Developing World, and contains practical suggestions as to how the gap may be narrowed. Management of Cleft Lip and Palate in the Developing World is an important resource for anyone having - or planning to have - a commitment to develop services in that environment and to clinicians in the Developing World faced with large numbers of cleft lip and palate patients and limited resources of materials and manpower.

Genre: Medical

Cleft Lip and Palate: Diagnosis and Management is an unparalleled review of treatment concepts in all areas of cleft involvement presented by an international team of experienced clinicians. A unique feature of the book is that it largely consists of longitudinal facial and palatal growth studies of dental casts, photographs, panorexes, and cephalographs from birth to adolescence. Throughout the discussion of growth and treatment concepts, the importance of differential diagnosis in treatment planning is underscored. The underlying argument is that all the treatment goals – good speech, facial aesthetics, dental occlusion, and psychological development – may be realized without the need to sacrifice one for another. This updated third edition includes new chapters on further successful physiological treatment protocols, strategies for coping with psychological effects, the excellent clinical work being undertaken in Asia, future multicenter palatal growth studies, and other topics.

Genre: Medical

The focus of this book is on speech production and speech processing associated with cleft palate, covering phonetic (perceptual and instrumental), phonological and psycholinguistic perspectives, and including coverage of implications for literacy and education, as well as cross-linguistic differences. It draws together a group of international experts in the fields of cleft lip and palate and speech science to provide an up-to-date and in-depth account of the nature of speech production, and the processes and current evidence base of assessment and intervention for speech associated with cleft palate. The consequences of speech disorders associated with cleft on intelligibility and communicative participation are also covered. This book will provide a solid theoretical foundation and a valuable clinical resource for students of speech-language pathology, for practising speech-language pathologists, and for others interested in speech production in cleft palate, including researchers and members of multi-disciplinary cleft teams who wish to know more about the nature of speech difficulties associated with a cleft palate.

Genre: Medical

A valuable source of up-to-date information 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 the epidemiology, aetiology and treatment of cleft lip and palate, and will be of use to a wide range of individuals, including students, biologists and clinicians, who have an interest in this subject.

Neonatal Surgery of the Cleft Lip and Palate

Genre: Medical

Traditionally, cleft lip repair has been carried out around 10 to 12 weeks of age. There have been surgeons who have done surgery in newborn but there has been no series where cleft lip repair has been carried out in the first 48 hours as a routine procedure over a long period with long term results. The author's unit has performed this operation routinely for the past 25 years and collected data on the speech, hearing, growth and appearance of the children, who are now in their 20s. The main argument against this procedure was the anaesthetic risk in performing surgery so early in life. Having analysed all the arguments for and against, the author provides a detailed analysis of the work in this book. As far as is known, this is the only book to analyse the long-term results of surgery in newborn. A number of centres around the world are contemplating or performing sugery in newborn and this would be a very good background for emphasising and promoting the operation.

Learn about: what clefts are; how they are repaired and when; feeding problems before and after surgery; dental issues; hearing & middle ear problems; your child's treatment team; your child's perspective; velopharyngeal inadequacy; speech-language skill building activities. A team of speech-language pathologists focuses especially on mitigating the speech and language problems experienced by children ages birth to five with cleft palate. Parents can use the book's dozens of practical, hands-on activities to improve their child's speech. For example, 'Bug Race!' uses a cotton ball or pom-pom -- add eyes and voilá, you have a bug! -- that the child moves by releasing pressure from behind the lips to stimulate oral airflow to produce the consonant /p/. Build valuable speech skills while you both have fun! Helpful strategies, illustrations of cleft repair procedures, photos of equipment, and recommended resources empower parents to get started on addressing speech and other developmental issues. Speech-language pathologists, early intervention specialists, and medical professionals will also want this book to recommend to the families they serve. The authors are professors of speech-language pathology who have spoken and published extensively on assessment and treatment of children with cleft lip and palate. They are also experienced clinicians who bring a wealth of experience to this book.
