    Collapse Controversies in Cleft Aveolar Bone Grafting

    Ideal rehabilitation of the alveolar cleft includes closure of the oronasal fistula, consolidation of the maxilla with good archform, eruption of the permanent dentition, ability to orthodontically expand or move teeth through the grafted site, and in some cases, creation of a sufficient bone stock to facilitate dental implant placement or prostatic rehabilitation. There is still controversy as to the timing of repair and of late, whether early secondary, or late secondary repair is the best option to fulfill all the above stated goals. Also, it is often noted the bone graft harvest site has a higher complication rate and creates more pain than the surgical site itself. Because of this, efforts have been made to find other grafting options, such as allograft and bone morphogenetic protein, as in equivalent to autogenous bone. The purpose of this 90 minute panel discussion is to educate the audience on controversial techniques for alveolar cleft bone grafting to be focused on timing of oral nasal fistula closure and types of bone graft in materials utilized.

    Collapse The Importance of Early Identification and Treatment of Deformational Plagiocephaly/Brachycephaly and Congenital Muscular Torticollis

    Deformational plagiocephaly/brachycephaly (DPB) occurs in 16-19% of babies and 70-95% of these babies also have congenital muscular torticollis (CMT). Current theories state that the CMT occurs in the womb due to “packaging” causing the baby to develop a preferred position of turning their head in the opposite direction of the CMT. The skull is very soft and malleable; therefore, a preferred position often results in flattening and anteriorly displaces the ear, forehead and cheek. Although many families and PCP’s identify this issue at 1 or 2 months of age, the families are often told that DPB will resolve once the baby is rolling and sitting. Parents are very discouraged when this does not occur. Early intervention with conservative measures to include aggressive repositioning and physical therapy can be very effective. At our center, we have a team clinic with a nurse practitioner and a physical therapist seeing the patients referred for plagiocephaly/torticollis. The babies are evaluated for both diagnoses and treatment is initiated immediately often halting and/or reversing the progression and negating the need for helmet therapy.
