  Rare craniofacial clefts, unlike the common cleft lip and palate, frequently affect multiple functional units of the face. Similar to craniosynostosis, rare clefts may occur in isolation or as a manifestation of a rare craniofacial syndrome. For both entities, reconstructive complexity may range from routine to extraordinarily complex requiring.   Facial clefts and craniosynostosis: principles and management by Turvey, Timothy APages: Additional Physical Format: Online version: Turvey, Timothy A.

Jeffrey Weinzweig MD, FACS, in Plastic Surgery Secrets Plus (Second Edition), 13 What is an oronasoocular cleft? Also referred to as an oblique facial cleft, the oronasoocular cleft is a no. 3 cleft that begins at Cupid's bow, undermines the base of the nasal ala, and continues cephalad into the lower eyelid (Fig. A).This is the first of the Tessier clefts to involve the orbit directly. onstrate facial clefts, and the upper lid and cranium demonstrate cranial clefts. According to Tessier’s scheme, clefts of the bones and soft tissues do not always coincide and frequently several different clefts coexist. This classifica-tion system remains in wide use today because of its accuracy and because it is relatively easy. Hypertelorism is a severe craniofacial abnormality associated with facial clefts. Treatment is from age 4 years by surgically releasing the orbital segments and repositioning them as needed. Other craniofacial conditions. A lot of other conditions exist with craniofacial problems and facial asymmetries that we evaluate and manage on a regular. In addition to facial clefts, other craniofacial anomalies can be identified sonographically. The list is long and includes ocular anomalies, such as microphthalmia, cataracts, micrognathia, and craniosynostosis. However, the diagnosis is generally difficult and is hampered by their progressive development.

We treat cleft and craniofacial conditions of the head and face including but not limited to conditions such as a cleft lip, cleft palate, craniosynostosis and microtia. A cleft lip is a separation in the upper lip and cleft palate is a hole in the roof of the mouth. They are some of the most common birth anomalies found in the United States. Rozen, S. M. (). Facial palsy in children and young Craniosynostosis and Rare Craniofacial Clefts: Diagnosis, Treatment, and Outcomes (pp. ).Nova Science Publishers, Inc.   Craniofacial asymmetries can be classified based on aetiology and on the anatomical structures involved. While the causes of facial asymmetry are numerous, they are best divided into three categories: congenital, developmental and acquired. Craniosynostosis is the pathological premature fusion of one or more sutures in the cranial vault.   Introduction. Historically, the first case of an oblique facial cleft was recorded in Latin by von Kulmus in 1 In , Laroche made the distinction between what he called cheek clefts and ordinary clefts of the lip.2, 3 Subsequently, Walter Dick of Glasgow described the first case of an oblique facial cleft in the English medical literature.. Pelvet later separated oblique facial.
