The term "cleft lip and palate" includes a group of congenital malformations on the face. Here, the upper lip, the upper jaw and hard and / or soft palate have a gap. This pervades either all of these face structures or only parts of them.
In the upper lip, the cleft is reminiscent of the Y-shaped retraction to the nose on the upper lip of a hare. Therefore, the cleft lip and palate is colloquially referred to as harelip. The medical term is cheilognathopalatoschisis.
The treatment of a cleft lip and palate is tedious and complicated. It is usually done at specialized cleavage centers. Oral and maxillofacial surgeons, orthodontists, otolaryngologists and speech therapists work together to create a suitable treatment plan for every patient.
As a rule, the treatment of a cleft lip and palate is approached soon after the diagnosis. The essential steps take place during the first years of childhood of the children. Treatment on adult patients is rare in Germany.
The primary goal is to close the gap or the gaps in all sections (primary treatment). Functional restrictions and subsequent growth disturbances are to be avoided. In addition, attention is paid to a cosmetically satisfactory result. In addition to the actual operations for crevice closure usually requires some preparatory measures and any surgical intervention in the further course of therapy (secondary treatment).
There is no standard of treatment for a cleft lip and palate. The different treatment centers are sometimes very different, especially the timing vary. The basic procedure is usually the same.
