Few books have been published before with details on preoperative planning, markings and performance of primary surgical techniques to correct the cleft lip and palate deformity. This information is commonly required by surgeons. Scientific papers, conferences, and video clips of these surgical procedures are limited in details about how to address this common disease.
This book provides a comprehensive overview of surgery for the correction of primary cleft lip and palate, including planning, selecting the most suitable techniques, markings, performing operative techniques, and preoperative care.
Unlike other literature on the topic, which focuses on surgical techniques, this operative atlas (with detailed illustrations) covers the entire spectrum of this congenital deformity: classification of cleft lip and palate, management protocols, unilateral cleft lip surgery, bilateral cleft lip surgery, cleft palate surgery, post operative care and case studies. It will be a unique and valuable resource for surgeons treating this common condition.
