Special Issue Introduction

The concept of multidisciplinary team approach for cleft management has been established for decades, but current treatment protocols and outcomes are far from perfect, even in the most sophisticated centers. The primary surgical procedures leave not only uncorrected deformities but also inflict additional side effects requiring repetitive secondary interventions. Additionally, complicated treatment protocols usually last from birth through adulthood, placing a heavy medical burden on the families.

Therefore, we organize this special issue focusing on the “flaws” of modern cleft management, with the aim of delineating the frontiers of potential improvement. Topics concerning the disputes in any aspects of cleft management will be welcomed, including nasolabial reconstruction, velopharyngeal function rehabilitation, dental/skeletal deformity correction and sociophycological evaluation. In addition, experience in noncanonical and challenging cases is also important for the refinement of treatment protocols. Instead of presenting the state of the art, we are more interested in revealing the problems in the current stage of cleft care. Various types of manuscripts will be considered in this special issue, including but not limited to original research, reviews and case reports.

With the contributions of innovative perspectives from authors with different professional backgrounds, we are confident that this special issue will serve as a powerful guide to further improve cleft management.
