This book the successor to Advances in the Management of Cleft Palate edited by Margaret Edwards and Tony Watson and published in 1980 but it is different enough for its publishers and editors to feel that its name should be changed. The aim of this present book is to provide an up-to-date review of all aspects of the management of clefts. There are an increased number of chapters and the contributors represent a wider range of professions associated with the care of cleft lip and palate. There are new chapters on genetics, associated conditions and syndromes.
