Abstract

The present article describes an orthopedic appliance with pins used in the pre-surgical treatment of fully fissured unilateral cleft lip and palate before lip reparation. This appliance was designed with the aim of transversally correct palatal segments in the posterior area, align the smaller segment in the anterior section towards the facial midline, and decrease the cleft located near the lip so as to improve the shape of the nasal base floor and avoid later surgical compensations of the soft tissues.
