Method of uranoplasty (palatoplasty) using mucoperiosteal flaps for the repair of the hard palate region. This maintains the anterior attachment of the mucoperiosteal flap to the alveolar margin to make it a bipedicle flap. Originally only the cleft edges were incised, a lateral incision was made, the flap was elevated from the hard palate, the palatine musculature was divided and finally the sutures were applied. This technique is still used in isolated cleft palate repair. The muscle dissection and muscle suturing are done as additional procedures to create a muscle sling. This technique has recently been modified by Malek.
