Abstract

Correction of nasal deformity in patients with complete unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP) is
challenging, and there is no single option for the nasal correction timing and methods to achieve good
functional and aesthetic results.
The aim of the study was to compare nasal function of patients with UCLP with noncleft controls.
In this cross-sectional study, consecutive patients born between 1994–2002 with non-syndromic
complete UCLP were included. All patients had treatment in Rīga Cleft Lip and Palate Centre. Out of
35 patients, 14 came for control at mean age of 15 years (range 10–18). In control group, 35 non-cleft
participants at 10 years of age were included. In both groups to assess nasal respiration, active anterior
rhinomanometry was performed at least 6 months postoperatively (according to international standards).
For statistical analysis, paired t test and two samples t test was used. Statistical significance level of
p < 0.05 was chosen.
In patients with UCLP mean value of nasal flow with decongestant in non-cleft side was 343.1 cm3/s,
and in cleft side 211.3 cm3/s at 150 Pa, p < 0.05. In the control group, mean value of nasal flow with
decongestant in right side was 308.4 cm3/s, and in left side 330.4 cm3/s at 150 Pa, p > 0.05. Difference
in nasal flow between UCLP patients’ cleft side and either left or right side in non-cleft participants was
statistically significant p < 0.05.
In the control group and in non-cleft side of UCLP patients, nasal flow was better than in cleft side.
Rhinomanometry could be suggested as routine examination before and after secondary nose corrections.
