Cleft Palate and Craniofacial Conditions: A Comprehensive Guide to Clinical Management, Fourth Edition is ideal for the graduate course on cleft palate and craniofacial conditions, or as a source book for healthcare professionals who provide services in this area. Updated with full colour illustrations and photos, the Fourth Edition of this bestselling title has been reorganised to improve clarity and flow, with new references and information reflecting the most current research in the field. Key features such as Case Studies help the learner understand how to apply key information in a clinical setting, while Speech Notes highlight how anomalies and surgeries affect speech and resonance.
As the most comprehensive text in the market, Cleft Palate and Craniofacial Conditions answers the questions of ‘when,’ ‘what,’ ‘why,’ and most importantly ‘how’ when ensuring evaluation results in an accurate diagnosis. Because the author is both an experienced clinician and instructor, this textbook goes beyond the classroom, serving as a very practical “how-to” guide as well as a source of didactic and theoretical information.
