Abstract

Although surgical correction remains the mainstay of treating unilateral/bilateral cleft lip and/or palate deformities, some inadequacies still remain like scarring of the naso-labial complex, which require multiple interventions to achieve desired results. Pre-surgical naso-alveolar moulding (PNAM) consists of selective repositioning by active moulding of the alveolar segments as well as the surrounding soft tissues. Herein, we are presenting a clinical case of bilateral mid-facial cleft treated by the same that showed significant reduction in the defect size and improved contour of the columella-philtrum region for superior post-surgical esthetics.
