Cleft Lip/Cleft Palate – Prognosis

February 10, 2022


Overall, if a patient has their cleft lip treated early in childhood, they will not suffer any severe significant consequences throughout life. They tend to do very, very well. Patients with cleft palate, however, do have issues for quite some time. A lot of that, again, was with speech resonance. A lot of it was with hearing. these patients can have learning disabilities and they can also develop issues, interaction issues with other children growing up. So there are a lot of psychosocial issues involved with cleft palate, even though it is such a mild issue.
