Cleft Palate repair surgery (Palatoplasty)
Cleft palate is repaired by a surgical procedure to reconstruct or repair the palate of the patient. Palatoplasty is a common cleft palate repair procedure that is performed to seal the abnormal cavity between the mouth and the nose. It helps the patient in attaining normal speech. Moreover, it aids the patient to breathe and swallow, and helps in the normal development of the mouth structures.

At was age is it recommended to undergo surgery?
Cleft palate is repaired when the child is six to 12 months old.
Repeated and combined surgical procedures are often required when the child grows.

How is Cleft Palate repair surgery performed?

  • The patient is given medications and fluids through an intravenous line.
  • The cleft palate is repaired by attaching tissue on both sides of the cleft.
  • The opening to the nose is sealed and muscles are also attached that aids in lifting the palate.
  • Several layers are added to reconstruct the palate.

How to prepare for Cleft Palate repair surgery?
  • The child undergoes a complete physical examination.
  • The child’s blood is tested and the medical history is recorded.
  • The doctor should be informed about any medication that the child is taking. This includes vitamins and supplements.
  • Certain medication that the child is taking may be stopped some days before the surgery.
  • The doctor should be informed if the child has other illnesses and abnormalities.
  • The pediatrician will monitor the child’s nutrition and weight. The child needs to gain a certain amount of weight for the surgery. If this is not attained by oral feeding, the child may be fed using a nasogastric tube.
  • Approximately three weeks prior to the surgery, the child’s diet should consist of food that is of a thicker consistency.
  • As cleft palate can cause ear problems, the doctor may recommend the use of Tympanostomy tubes during the surgery.
