LA ROSA, Javira; RESTREPO, Mónica; TORRES, Ethman Ariel  y  RODRIGUEZ, Martha Juliana. Mandibular asymmetry in radiographies from non-syndromic children with and without cleft lip and palate in Bucaramanga, Colombia. Rev. Estomatol. Herediana [online]. 2021, vol.31, n.2, pp.73-80. ISSN 1019-4355.


assess any difference in growth and development of mandible in radiographs from cleft lip and/or palate patients.


an analytical cross-sectional study was conducted with a sample of 130 panoramic and cephalic radiographies from patients who attended the orthodontic service at Universidad Santo Tomás. Sixty-four (49.2%) men and 66 (50.8%) women with an average age of 10.6 ± 3.1 years were assessed. Anatomical points were defined on the radiographies and the measurements were performed in the two groups. The Student t-test and the multivariate ANOVA analysis were applied. A p<0.05 was considered as statically significant.


a statistically significant difference was found in the symmetry of patients with cleft lip and palate (p=0.0340), as well as a lower height of the left branch represented by the cephalometric plane Co-Inc (p=0.0414) and the mandibular body by Co - Gn (p=0.0094) and Go - Pog (p=0.0015).


the size of the mandibular body represented by the measurements taken in panoramic and lateral cephalic radiographs (Go-Pog, Co-Gn) of patients with cleft lip and palate is smaller than that of patients without clefts.

Palabras clave : cleft palate; cleft lip; mandible; cephalometry.
