Cleft lip and palate is the most common among craniofacial malformations and causes several esthetic and functional implications that require rehabilitation. This paper aims to generally describe the several aspects related to this complex pathology and the treatment protocol used by the Hospital for Rehabilitation of Craniofacial Anomalies, University of São Paulo (HRAC-USP) along 40 years of experience in the treatment of individuals with cleft lip and palate.
- A and B - Complete unilateral cleft lip affecting the lip, alveolar ridge and anterior palate
- C and D - Complete unilateral cleft lip and palate (affecting the lip, alveolar ridge and primary and secondary palate)
- E and F - Complete bilateral cleft lip and palate (affecting the lip, alveolar ridge and primary and secondary palate)
- G - Incomplete cleft palate (involving only the soft palate and uvula)
- H - Complete cleft palate (completely involving the secondary palate
