reconstruction is a major challenge in cleft lip and/or palate (CLP) patients and golden standard protocol is to perform bone grafting (BG) before canine eruption and subsequent or- thodontic closure.
Failure of fusion of the processes, failure of mesodermal penetration, failure of naso-optic groove formation are various explanations of the deformity.[R] The upper lip cleft is located at the same region as commonly seen cleft lip and the alveolar cleft
lies between the lateral incisor and the canine tooth.[R] However, as the cleft travels north bound, it undermines the nasal alar base to the medial canthus and produce coloboma of the lower eyelid medial to the punctum.[R] The vertical distance between the base of the ala and the medial canthus is reduced.[R] The medial canthus is displaced inferiorly and the nasolacrimal duct system is disrupted.

Among the topics are effective cleft lip surgery, growth of the dentofacial complex in the presence of cleft lip and palate, repairing alveolar clefts
by bone grafting, cleft speech-assessment and management, genetics and embryogenesis, neural crest cells in development of CL/P, genetic analysis of CL/P at the present and its prospects for the future, the preventive effect of folic acid and other vitamins on congenital anomalies, and methods for dietary surveys aimed to prevent CL/P.
