The first year of life for children with cleft lip/palate (CL/P) requires careful adherence to standardized protocols to ensure the best surgical and speech outcomes. Madeleine K. Bruce and her co-authors from the Department of Plastic Surgery @pittplasticsurgery at UPMC Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh evaluated the effect of the COVID-19 pandemic on cleft care. She and her co-authors found that while the pandemic caused delays at each stage of repair for CL/P-related procedures, only cleft lip and nose repair was significantly affected. This study emphasizes the importance of remaining vigilant regarding the care of this vulnerable population during this challenging time.
