Article: Early dental arch relationships as treatment outcome in children with complete unilateral cleft lip and palate in northeastern Thailand.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: The objective of the present study was to evaluate the dental arch relationships of children with complete unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP) as an early surgical repair outcome in the Northeastern part of Thailand. The study used a 5-year study model of 46 complete UCLP, non consecutive, patients whose primary repair had been performed at Khon Kaen University. The outcome of dental arch relationships was assessed using the 5-Year-Olds' Index. Agreement of rating was assessed with weighted kappa statistics; both the intra- and inter-examiner agreements were high, indicating good reproducibility. The results indicated that the surgical outcome was graded as poor and very poor for 60% of patients and excellent, good, or fair for 40% of patients. This result was also poor compared with other overseas reports.Journal of the Medical Association of Thailand = Chotmaihet thangphaet 12/2011; 94 Suppl 6:S57-61.
Article: The assessment of treatment outcome by evaluation of dental arch relationships in cleft lip/palate.[show abstract] [hide abstract]
ABSTRACT: Cleft lip/palate (CLP) patients need an interdisciplinary team approach for optimal treatment, care and results. Evaluation of the treatment outcomes is essential to allow for identification and implementation of the highest possible standard of care. The aim of this paper is to present the less invasive methods of assessment of treatment outcomes by evaluation of dental arch relationships in both unilateral and bilateral CLP.Journal of the Medical Association of Thailand = Chotmaihet thangphaet 10/2010; 93 Suppl 4:S100-6.
