Complete Cleft Care is a comprehensive, step-by-step guide to the assessment and treatment of patients suffering from cleft and velopharyngeal disorders. It covers multiple treatment modalities such as unilateral and bilateral cleft lip repair, secondary speech assessment and surgery, cleft rhinoplasty, gingivoperiosteoplasty, and alveolar bone grafting. The book includes videos, available online at Thieme's Media Center, that demonstrate specific techniques used in each treatment procedure.

Key Features:

  • Full-color diagrams and clinical photos illustrate surgical approaches used to correct cleft deformities
  • Accompanying videos help readers synthesize the step-by-step procedures described in the book
  • Treatment algorithms to guide readers in choosing the best treatment option for each clinical problem
