Tensor veli palatini muscle tension sling for eustachian tube function in cleft palate. Surgical technique and audiometric examination.
J Craniomaxillofac Surg. 1991 Feb; 19(2):71-6.JC

Abstract

The high incidence of middle ear effusion in cleft lip and/or palate infants and children led to the development of a tension sling for the tensor veli palatini muscle for better Eustachian tube function after intravelar veloplasty.--The surgical technique is outlined in this paper and an audiometric examination was conducted to determine the influence of this surgical modification, performed in the same procedure as the intravelar veloplasty, on the Eustachian tube function. The intra- and intergroup comparisons indicate that this surgical technique has a positive influence on the tube function.
