Primary repair of the bilateral cleft lip nose: a long-term follow-up.
Plast Reconstr Surg. 2009 Nov; 124(5):1610-5.PR

Abstract

BACKGROUND

The author previously published a method of primary repair of bilateral cleft lip nasal deformity using an open tip rhinoplasty to enable correction of the displaced and deformed alar cartilages.

METHODS

The first 10 consecutive children who had this treatment have been followed through to adulthood. They are now 18 to 19 years old, and the long-term results of this primary nasal repair are reviewed.

RESULTS

In general, the repair has been effective and stable. There has been no interference with growth. In most cases, the external nasal scars are barely noticeable.

CONCLUSIONS

In primary treatment of the bilateral cleft lip nose, an open tip rhinoplasty enables accurate replacement of the alar cartilages and correction of the deformity. It justifies the creation of an external scar that is usually unnoticeable.
