A Study to Examine the Relationship Between Sleep Apnea and Cleft Lip/Palate
The study is to examine the relationship between sleep apnea and neurocognitive behaviors in children with cleft lip/palate. Describe the incidence and severity of obstructive sleep apnea in an unselected population of grade school aged children with surgically repaired cleft palate.
A. Is the incidence of OSA higher in children with cleft palate than age matched historical control groups? B. Are nighttime symptoms an adequate screening tool to exclude the diagnosis of OSA in children with surgically repaired cleft palate? Describe the velopharyngeal closure patterns during speech in an unselected population of grade school aged children with surgically repaired cleft palate. Describe the neurobehavioral phenotype of an unselected population of grade school aged children with surgically repaired cleft palate.
