Book Description

The second edition of Cleft Lip and Palate: Perspectives In Management is an unparalleled review of treatment concepts in all areas of cleft involvement presented by an international team of experienced clinicians. This text can never be duplicated since it largely consists of longitudinal facial and palatal growth studies of dental casts, photographs, panorexes and cephalographs from birth to adolescence. Throughout all growth and treatment concepts, the need for differential diagnosis in treatment planning has been underscored. The underlying argument is that all of the treatment goals — good speech, facial aesthetics and dental occlusion — may be realized without the need to sacrifice one for the other. Every chapter author’s concepts arose from extensive experience subjected to testing. Emphasis is placed on the essential character of multicenter clinical studies for improving understanding of the natural history of the cleft defect and the face in which it is found.

Berkowitz Cleft Lip and Palate January 25, 2012
This book is an excellent and thorough coverage of the topic of Cleft Lip and Palate. It is a book that I would highly recommend to any practicioner considering work in this area. The discussion of different techniques in the book is somewhat enfluenced by the editor’s personal experience and his desire for evidence based research, however, to his credit he has given ample discussion to different techniques to which he may have a different opinion. The book covers all areas of the subject from it’s history to potential future approaches up to the publish date of 2oo5. In summary, I commend the editor as well as the contributors and recommend the book as essential reading in any professional library.
