Influence of the nasal septum on maxillonasal growth in patients with congenital labiomaxillary cleft.

Abstract

An interpretation of the role of the nasal septum on maxillonasal growth in patients with congenital labiomaxillary clefts is presented. Salient features of the anatomic pathology and resultant dysfunction of the premaxillary-maxillary suture and the position and orientation of the nasolabial muscles relative to the nasal septum are discussed for unilateral and bilateral deformities. The nasal septum plays an important direct role in growth of the premaxilla and an indirect role in growth of the maxilla.
