Abstract

The purpose of this study was to compare outcomes and delivery of cleft care in Western Australia with the average standard of care in the United Kingdom (UK). This was achieved through a cross-sectional study involving children born with unilateral cleft lip and palate between April 1983 and March1985 (12 year olds) or between April 1990 and March 1992 (5 year olds). A total of 38 children born with unilateral cleft lip and palate were under the care of the cleft team based at Perth's Princess Margaret Hospital. Dental arch relations, facial skeletal pattern, speech, hearing, success of alveolar bone grafting and dental health were measured. It was found that fewer Princess Margaret Hospital children in both age cohorts had revision surgery and speech therapy compared with the UK average. The facial skeletal pattern, speech, hearing and alveolar bone grafting outcomes from Princess Margaret Hospital were similar to the UK at age 12. Seventeen per cent of thePrincess Margaret Hospital 12 year olds had a poor dental arch relationship compared with 39 per cent in the UK. In the 5 year olds, most outcomes inPrincess Margaret Hospital patients appeared better than the UK with lowerresidual treatment needs. While it is difficult to draw firm conclusions because of the small numbers involved, this study indicates standards need to be set and determined for Australia.
