Cleft Lip and Palate Management: A Comprehensive Atlas with more than 400 photographs and illustrations provides the latest concepts about the surgical/orthodontic interrelation in cleft lip and palate treatment. Dr. Bennun and his team detail the diagnostic techniques to determine the best treatment protocols for optimal results and decreased chance of retreatment. The first part explains the principles of cleft and palate treatment, including the role of tissue engineering in craniofacial surgery. Part 2 details the aspects of primary surgical reconstruction, Part 3 discusses orthodontic treatments of cleft lip and palate, including a chapter on adult treatment, and Part 4 covers how to improve results in interdisciplinary treatment. Case presentations include results of treatment after 20-year follow up visits. Ideal for oral and maxillofacial surgeons, pediatric plastic surgeons, orthodontists, pediatric dentists, and residents in these specialties.
