DynaCleft® to Pre-Surgically Approximate Cleft Lips

Summary

DynaCleft before and after

 

DynaCleft® is the only product on the market today that pre-surgically approximates cleft lips.

DynaCleft® gently guides soft tissues and bone into a better position for a cleft lip repair under less tension.

Unlike conventional tape, DynaCleft® provides a constant approximation force with an elastic center that allows it to conform to the baby's mouth even when the baby is feeding or crying. The skin-friendly adhesive fabric distributes tension over a large area of skin resulting in less irritation and less frequent change-outs. Developed in collaboration with cleft palate teams, DynaCleft significantly advances pre-surgical taping techniques, resulting in reduced tension both during and after surgery.

  • Gentler and less irritating than rigid tapes.
  • Shaped to prevent blistering. 
  • Pulls open wounds closed.

 

[clinical benefits]

  • Facilitates a low-tension repair. 
  • Controlled force re-positions prolabium and premaxilla for best possible surgical results.
  • Can be used alone, or in conjunction with N.A.M., Latham, or nasal stents. 
  • May eliminate need for early lip adhesion surgery.

[indications]

DynaCleft is indicated for use in controlling and approximating the soft tissues of a cleft lip. For best results, DynaCleft is used as early as possible in the child's life, usually from the time they are 10 days old until their cleft lip repair surgery, then again after surgery to reinforce the repair.

 

[contra-indications]

None known.

 

[frequency of change]

  • Typical useage is one strip per day (one pouch per week) for 10-12 weeks. 
  • DynaCleft can also be used for 2-3 weeks post-operatively to relieve tension on sutures. 

 

[warnings]

  • If allergic reaction occurs, discontinue use. 
  • Exceeding recommended tension may result in skin damage or adhesive failure. 
  • When removing DynaCleft® from skin, peel outside edges and roll towards middle to prevent damage to skin. 
  • Adhesive removing compounds can damage the elastic. If used, ensure all traces of it are washed away from skin before applying DynaCleft®. 
  • NO REUSE: DynaCleft® is not intended to be reused. The adhesive tape uses a single-contact adhesive that is not designed to withstand repeated use.
