50年以上にわたり未手術であった成人口蓋裂患者の4例 Adult patients with cleft palate who did not undergo palatoplasty for more than 50 years : report of four cases
In Japan, where medical treatment and welfare are highly developed, it is rare that cleft palate is left untreated for long periods. We recently encountered four patients with cleft palate, which did not undergo palatoplasty for a long period of 50 years. We performed palatoplasty by the Wardill method. We describe the patients and the main intraoperative points because good results were obtained.
