- Device: Flexible fiberoptic nasopharyngoscopy
- Flexible fiberoptic nasopharyngoscopy (FFN) allows direct transnasal observation of the anatomy and dynamic activity of the velopharyngeal sphincter. Such observations can be recorded for permanent documentation by coupling FFN to a video camera with simultaneous audio recording. Numerous published reports discuss the advantages of FFN as a clinical method for evaluating velopharyngeal function during speech (10).
- Cephalometric analysis, is the clinical application of cephalometry. It is analysis of the dental and skeletal relationships of a human skull and is frequently used by dentists, orthodontists, and oral and maxillofacial surgeons as a treatment planning tool.
Cephalometric analysis can also be applied for assessing the velopharyngeal structure and function. More specifically, velopharyngeal function in terms of its shape and mobility was analyzed quantitatively on the basis of cephalometric principleOther Name: Cephalometry
- Comparison between Cephalometric and nasofibroscopic findings and clinical findings [ Time Frame: Baseline ]Assessment of the function of velopharyngeal valve by nasofibroscopy and cephalometric measurements in clinically border line cases of velopharyngeal incompetence in order to ensure the presence of Velophayngeal incompetence
