Abstract

Cleft lip and palate resulting in midface hypoplasia requires distraction of the midface. Rigid External Distractor (RED) has been used successfully for correction of this hypoplasia with stable results. This case reports highlights the long term followup of stability of DO using RED in a patient with cleft lip and palate.
