  • Anatomic Distribution of the Morphologic Variation of the Upper Lip Frenulum Among Healthy Newborns. [Journal Article]
    JAMA Otolaryngol Head Neck Surg 2019Ray S, Golden WC, Walsh J
  • CONCLUSIONS: To our knowledge, this cross-sectional study was the first to objectively measure the numerous morphologic components of the upper lip anatomy in healthy newborns. Variations in maxillary labial frenulum morphology were identified, and some combination of the stated measurements may be used to create a more robust classification system to advance quality research in the association of lip-tie with breastfeeding difficulty.
  • Ankyloglossia: Last three-years of outpatient care at a tertiary referral center. [Journal Article]
    Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2019; 126:109599LeTran V, Osterbauer B, … Gomez G
  • CONCLUSIONS: In this study we identify additional variables that may influence the decision to perform a frenotomy in children with ankyloglossia. The significant impact of clinician biases in the management of ankyloglossia suggests arbitrary differences in the way these patients are managed, highlighting the lack of consensus amongst otolaryngologists and the need for clear indications and diagnostic criteria.
  • Upper lip frenotomy for neonatal breastfeeding problems. [Journal Article]
    Int J Pediatr Otorhinolaryngol 2019; 124:190-192Patel PS, Wu DB, … Rosenfeld RM
  • CONCLUSIONS: Upper lip frenotomy, in properly selected infants, has favorable short-term outcomes with mild transient discomfort and a low rate of recurrence. Since our study was short-term and did not include a control group, we are unable to comment on procedure efficacy or long-term impact.
  • StatPearls: Anatomy, Head and Neck, Submandibular Gland [BOOK]
    StatPearls Publishing: Treasure Island (FL) Grewal Jeewanjot S. JS SUNY Upstate Medical University Ryan Jesse J SUNY Upstate Medical University BOOK
  • The submandibular gland is the second largest of the three main salivary glands, which also include the parotid and sublingual glands. The submandibular glands are paired major salivary glands that lie in the submandibular triangle. The glands have a superficial and deep lobe separated by the mylohyoid muscle.[1] The Wharton duct, the submandibular gland’s primary excretory duct, drains into the …
  • Defining the anatomy of the neonatal lingual frenulum. [Journal Article]
    Clin Anat 2019; 32(6):824-835Mills N, Keough N, … Mirjalili SA
  • The lingual frenulum is recognized as having the potential to limit tongue mobility, which may lead to difficulties with breastfeeding in some infants. There is extensive variation between individuals in the appearance of the lingual frenulum but an ambiguous relationship between frenulum appearance and functional limitation. An increasing number of infants are being diagnosed with ankyloglossia,…
  • [Treatment for tongue-tie]. [Journal Article]
    Ugeskr Laeger 2019; 181(16)Mahmood B, Trolle W, … Kirchmann M
  • Ankyloglossia, or tongue-tie, is a congenital malformation, in which a short, lingual frenulum or a tight genioglossus muscle restricts tongue movement. In newborns, the reported prevalence is 2-11%. However, only 18% of newborns, in whom clinical findings suggest ankyloglossia, develop symptoms. Several randomised clinical trials report a significant reduction in maternal nipple pain after freno…
