ESTRADA SARMIENTO, M.; ESPINOSA FONSECA, R.  and  PEREZ PERDOMO, E.. Results of the multidisciplinary management of unilateral cleft lip and palate patients. Rev Esp Cirug Oral y Maxilofac [online]. 2007, vol.29, n.3, pp.164-170. ISSN 2173-9161.

A model was designed to evaluate the protocol and strategy of the interdisciplinary team treating unilateral cleft lip and palate patients at the Maxillofacial Surgery department of the "University Provincial Hospital Carlos Manuel de Cespedes" Bayamo, Granma, Cuba. A maxillofacial surgeon, an orthodontist and a phoniatrician evaluated the current state of 60 patients with ages ranging between 14 and 22. The results showed that more than half of the patients had finished their treatment by one of the specialists. Only 27 patients (16.2%) had completed their treatment by the three specialists. The factors contributing to these percentages are discussed.

Keywords : Protocol; Interdisciplinary team; Unilateral cleft lip and palate.
