Treatment and Nursing Management

The initial treatment is surgical repair of  the cleft. The timing of the repair varies from surgeon to surgeon, but most prefer cleft lip repair around 3 months of  age and palate repair around  11/2  to 2 years of  age before the speech development. Nursing care includes

(i) Prevention of  infection,

(ii) Provision of adequate nutrition (feeding with cup, spoon, dropper or aseptosyrings) as the child is unable to suck, 

(iii) Prevention of aspiration,

(iv) Parent education regarding home care of child, 

(v)  Providing pre-operative and post-operative care.
