Repair of a Secondary Cleft Lip Deformity With the Abbé Flap in a Pediatric Patient
Secondary cleft lip deformities are common. Over time, primary surgical correction of a cleft lip can become distorted resulting in suboptimal long-term functional outcomes in areas such as feeding, speech, and breathing as well as negative psychosocial consequences including negative peer interactions and social isolation. For these reasons, it is imperative to perform secondary revision surgery to ensure proper functional and social development.
