Kumari P, Roy SK, Roy ID, Kumar P, Datana S, Rahman S - Ann Maxillofac Surg (2013)

Bottom Line: Mean linear horizontal advancement achieved along nasion (N) to anterior nasal spine (ANS) with reference to true vertical plane at 15 days and 12 months was 5.17 and 3.91 mm, respectively.The mean relapse in anteroposterior dimension was 21.63%.The mean vertical displacement observed along nasion and ANS with reference to true horizontal plane at 15 days and 12 months was 5.21 mm and 3.2, respectively with a resultant relapse of 41.54%.

ABSTRACT

Context: Le Fort 1 maxillary osteotomy in operated patients of cleft lip and cleft palate (CLCP).

Aims: To study stability of Le Fort 1 maxillary osteotomy in operated patients of CLCP by two-dimensional evaluation using cephalometric analysis.

Settings and design: Prospective study conducted at Army Dental Centre (Research and Referral) from May 2009-May 2012.

Materials and methods: Subjects included nine consecutively operated patients of CLCP with maxillary hypoplasia. Maxillary advancement by Le Fort 1 maxillary step osteotomy was performed. There were four males and five females with an age range of 16-18 years and follow-up range was 12-36 months. Presurgical and postsurgical changes were compared using cephalometrics for orthognathic surgery (COGS) system to determine stability of maxillary movement and quantify amount of relapse at 15 days and 12 months.

Statistical analysis: Student's t-test.

Results: Mean linear horizontal advancement achieved along nasion (N) to anterior nasal spine (ANS) with reference to true vertical plane at 15 days and 12 months was 5.17 and 3.91 mm, respectively. The mean relapse in anteroposterior dimension was 21.63%. The mean vertical displacement observed along nasion and ANS with reference to true horizontal plane at 15 days and 12 months was 5.21 mm and 3.2, respectively with a resultant relapse of 41.54%.

Conclusions: Based on clinical and COGS analysis, it is evident that Le Fort 1 advancement in operated cases of CLCP has inherent potential for relapse.

Mentions: Postoperative records including lateral cephalograms were analysed at 15 days and 12 months with the preoperative records [Figures 1–8]. All patients (n = 9) were satisfied with postoperative results due to marked improvement in facial aesthetics. Mean linear horizontal advancement achieved along nasion (N) to anterior nasal spine (ANS) with reference to true vertical plane at 15 days and 12 months was 5.17 and 3.91 mm, respectively [Tables 1 and 2]. The mean relapse in anteroposterior dimension was 21.63% at 12 months. The mean vertical displacement achieved along nasion and ANS with reference to true horizontal plane at 15 days and 12 months was 5.21 and 3.2 mm, respectively with a resultant relapse of 4.54% at end of 12 months. In a patient of bilateral CLCP, fragmentation of maxilla was encountered intraoperatively which was managed using surgical splint. No other significant intraoperative or postoperative complication was observed.
