Abstract Objective: To assess long-term effects of nasal correction in infancy on nasal form and growth in patients with unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP). Design: Retrospective longitudinal study. Patients: Seventeen patients with complete UCLP treated in Program SEHATI in Harapan Kita Children and Maternity Hospital, Indonesia and followed for approximately 15 years were enrolled. Interventions: Subjects received presurgical orthopedics using a Hotz's plate and simultaneous primary lip and nose repair in which the lower lateral cartilage was repositioned through a reverse-U incision. Main Outcome Measures: Pre- and postoperative nasal forms including the nostril height and width ratio, the ratio of the height of the top of the alar groove, and the ratio of nostril surface areas were analyzed using color photos taken serially. One-way ANOVA was used for statistical analyses. Results: The nostril height and width ratio and the height of the alar groove were significantly improved postoperatively and maintained for 15 years. The mean ratio of nostril surface areas was 1.01±0.12 at 15-year postoperatively, and there was no significant difference from that 1 year postoperatively. The major persistent deformities were septal deviation and a small skin web on the nostril rim. Conclusions: Our primary cleft lip nose correction has provided an acceptable nose form and absence of disturbance of the nasal growth in patients with UCLP. However, the repositioning of the nasal cartilage at infancy might not eliminate the need of secondary correction after puberty. Key Words: cleft lip and palate, lip and nose repair, nasal correction.
