Abstract
Nasal deformity in cleft lip patients is caused by nasal septum deviation, alar car-tilage distortion, and unparalleled maxillar and alveolar bones due to a widening of the palate. Additional rhinoplasty when using the labioplasty method is a solu-tion to achieving nostril symmetry in unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP) pa-tients. This study aims to compare nostril size and symmetry between the cleft and noncleft sides following Cronin method labioplasty in combination with Ta-jima method rhinoplasty. Methods: Nostril symmetry was evaluated according to the anthropometry scale based on profile photographs using nostril height, nostril width, and quarter-medial nostril height, and the nostril width in 35 UCLP patients following labioplasty in combination with Cronin and Tajima rhinoplasty meth-ods. Results: The results showed significant differences (p < 0.05) in width and quarter-medial nostril height. In contrast, height and nostril width were not signifi-cantly different p > 0.05. This shows that there is no significant difference in height and nostril width between the cleft and noncleft sides in patients post-Cronin method labioplasty and Tajima method rhinoplasty. In contrast, there is a significant difference in the width and quarter-medial nostril height. Conclusions: There is no significant difference in the height and nostril width post-Cronin method labioplasty and Tajima method rhinoplasty in UCLP patients. However, there is a significant difference in the width and quarter-medial nostril height be-tween the cleft and noncleft sides.
