The treatment of congenital craniofacial deformities is extremely complex. Our aim should be an ideal morphological and functional correction, although, unfortunately, our results are still far from perfect.
Interdisciplinary cooperation between the surgeon and the orthodontist is fundamental in order to reach this objective, and it is much more challenging than the usual collaboration which is routinely needed in the treatment of dento-facial deformities. In the latter case most situations are standardized, each with its peculiar problem and each with its well coded orthodontic and surgical treatment strategies.
Different is the case of congenital craniofacial malformations, where each deformity is radically different from the other at start. To this we need to add the effect of a primary treatment which might have had different results from case to case.
Different amounts of scar tissue might be present, lip and tongue muscular function might be differently hindered, teeth might deformed or missing, maxillary growth might be variably impaired or intrinsically poor.
These are all issues which it make it impossible to standardize the treatment of these patients and impose an individual treatment plan with a close collaboration between surgeon and orthodontist, who need to discuss the options together with the patients.
In this precious, and I must say, unique volume, devoted to this very peculiar pathology, the reader may find the bases which allow to address with a rational approach, the best solution for each child with a craniofacial deformity.
