Confirmed!! New research reinforces the effectiveness of the DynaCleft System with Nasal Elevators for presurgical infants with unilateral cleft lip and palate.
"Comparative Study of Presurgical Infant Orthopedics by Modified Grayson Method and Dynacleft With Nasal Elevators in Patients With Unilateral Cleft Lip and Palate—A Clinical Prospective Study" compared presurgical outcomes, using a meaningful analysis, on 28 infants undergoing correction for unilateral cleft lip and palate. 14 infants underwent correction using the Modified Grayson Method and the other 14 using the DynaCleft with Nasal Elevators. Both groups demonstrated equally improved alveolar correction and nasal asymmetry.
The study concluded that both methods are effective in improving nasal asymmetry, reducing the alveolar cleft gap and approximating the lips together. Thus, cleft lip and palate teams can be confident in achieving positive outcomes with the DynaCleft System.
The DynaCleft System simplifies and improves presurgical positioning of the lip and palate for improved cosmetic and functional outcomes. By gently guiding and supporting facial tissues, it improves nasal symmetry and better positions a cleft lip and palate for optimal surgical results.
