Surgeon’s Preference and Application of Surgicel And Buccal Pad of Fat in Primary Palatoplasty-A Retrospective Study

Author: FAAZILA FATHIMA, SENTHIL MURUGAN P
Abstract: Cleft palate causes loss of every function of the face except vision. A child born with cleft palate with or without cleft lip should not be considered unfortunate, because cleft palate surgical repair has reached a highly satisfactory level.A large number of techniques are available in literature to treat cleft palate patients, and also every surgeon incorporates his own modification to make it a variation.Understanding of material usage in palatoplasty is important to bring about variation and successful treatment options.The aim of this study is to assess the role of surgicel and buccal pad of fat in cleft palate surgical procedures.This is a university setting study. Data of cleft palate patients who reported to Saveetha Dental College and Hospital between June 2019 to March 2020 were reviewed. The case sheets of these patients were evaluated to see if placement of surgicel or buccal pad of fat was done in primary palatoplasty. The data was then entered in SPSS and analysed using Chi square test. It was observed that buccal pad of fat(77%) was the commonly used material for cleft palate procedures.Within the limitations of this study,it can be concluded that the adjunct material of choice for cleft surgeons of saveetha dental hospital during surgical repair of cleft palate is buccal pad of fat which may be due to its healing efficacy,no material costs involved, also can be used for both genders in all age groups, and we can avoid forign body material especially in small children.
