Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate Surgery - Why It Is Done?

Cleft Lip and Cleft Palate Surgery - Why It Is Done?

Cleft lip and cleft palate are the two most common birth defects affecting children all over the world. What happens in the cleft lip is that the upper lip is incompletely formed and in cleft palate abnormalities, we see babies with an incompletely formed roof of the mouth. Both these can be found individually or can occur together. These conditions can be severe or mild and affect one or both sides of the face.

Causes
The fEtus undergoes the separation of the upper lip and the roof of the mouth pretty early. In certain cases, this separation does not happen or happens incompletely and certain parts of the upper lip and roof of the mouth fail to form properly leading to cleft lip and palate.

Repair through surgery

  1. Plastic surgery is the only way to repair a cleft lip and/or palate. Both of these impair vital functions like speaking, eating, breathing, and hearing properly.
  2. Surgery is done to restore function and to make the affected child look more normal.
  3. Most cleft lip and palate surgeries are done on very young children usually 3 months to a year old.
  4. Before the actual surgery, a team of specialist define a course of treatment, including repair of the cleft using surgery, which means plugging the hole in the lip or the palate; speech rehabilitation and dental restoration, as the child usually has no teeth in the affected parts of the upper palate.

The specialists required are:

  1. Plastic surgeon
  2. Pediatric dentist
  3. Ear, nose, and throat specialist
  4. Auditory or hearing specialist

What happens during surgery?
Usually, cleft lip surgery happens in children as young as 3-6 months old. It has to be carried out under general anaesthesia. If the condition is severe, and the cleft lip is wide, special procedures like lip adhesion or a moulding plate are used to bring the two parts of the lip closer and it is fully repaired.

Cleft palate repair surgery is done at the age of 9-12 months only.
What happens here is that plastic surgeons bring together the muscles of the upper soft palate and rearrange them to cover the gaping hole in the roof of the mouth. The surgery is usually done under general anaesthesia and requires a short hospital stay.

  • Without a normal palate, the child can’t speak properly. So, surgery helps to improve and normalise speech.
  • And that’s not all. The child may require more surgeries as he grows older to treat these two problems.
  • This is because the child’s facial structure changes and he or she may require advanced surgeries like pharyngoplasty, which helps improve speech, or alveolar bone grafts to provide stability for permanent teeth.
  • A bone graft is usually done when the child is 6-10 years old and it closes gaps in the bone or gums near the front teeth. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a pediatrician.

Tantrums at Two
The children become very active, irritable, cranky, start having a mind of their own, suddenly become very choosy in what they want to eat or drink or want to do for that matter. Do not worry. It is normal. Now that they can walk, communicate with some words and have started moving around; they are very excited. This new found freedom is amazing for them. Be firm but do not lose your cool. Keep guiding them about what's wrong and whats right, let them explore. But yes if you are too flustered then they can be calmed down with the help of a few doses of very mild homeopathic medicines. Have a great day.

My baby's genital area turned red and paediatrician said it was diaper rash. He prescribed Mintonia syrup 2.5 ml daily and Candiderma + cream to be applied after each urine. He is 7 months old. Is it safe to take these medicines?

In extreme cold weather there are chances of frost bite, thermal injuries leading to influenza (cold cough fever). Usually we know well to protect us from from extreme cold weather but over protection may lead to other type of immunological thermal injuries. For example suppose temperature of water in overhead tank is 4 degree Celsius chilled and we can not bath or drink chilled water than we will start heating and sooner it will become warm at 40 degree Celsius. Now we will start bathing at this temperature of water in chilled air. Temperature difference between bathroom air and water goes beyond 20 degree Celsius (35 degree Celsius). This difference between bathroom air and water temperature of more than 20 degrees Celsius causes other type of thermal injuries leading to Allergies and infection due to breach in immunity.

I can't say if lactare has any role to increase milk. Keep the baby on breast one after other till either breast is emptied or baby is satisfied. If baby is still hungry, only then give complementary dairy milk already kept ready. This is the way to increase milk.

You have narrated yourself cause of your problems. It is because of not eating any thing nutritious diet. To eat well, 1st and most important is to stop drinking soft drinks which kills appetite. Once you stop it, I am sure you shall like eating. To start, eat what you like made in home and if you like sweetened cold to drink, take milk shake once or twice in a day. Increase diet gradually.

I presume your baby is on partial breast feed and almost 6-7 months old. This is age when most of mothers feel that child is demanding feeds earlier than before or may not gain weight as before. Then you. Should increase the interval between two feeds and start with very thin soup/porridges, to be given two three times a day at least 2-3after breast feed. Food cooked at home and made from your diet. Just add milk/curd in each feed.

Preserving stem cell (cord blood) is a good thing. But the so much hyped benefits are not absolutely true. Research works are going on, so if affordability is not a barrier, you should go for it.

Hi, thank you for the question. The diet for a toddler with Down Syndrome would not differ much from the diet of a healthy toddler. However, because of poor muscle tone, the physical development of children with Down syndrome is delayed. They also have a tendency to gain weight. The increased weight along with poor physical activity due to decreased tone puts extra stress on muscles which further makes them weak. Hence, it is important that we take care, about keeping the diet such, that it is balanced, nutricious, less fatty so that weight can be kept towards more lean side as compared to other children of same age.

it might be the breast milk amount is less or the nipples retracted / not well formed. Consult and show your obstetrician. Take lactohil pwder twice daily with milk. Retracted nipples can be massaged and pulled out with vitamin E oil gradually
