Osteogenesis and Dental Eruption Through Electrical Stimuli
This trial is active, not recruiting.
|Sponsor||University of Guadalajara|
|Start date||January 2006|
|End date||November 2007|
|Trial size||9 participants|
|Trial identifier||NCT00975208, CW1234|
The closure of the alveolar cleft as part of cleft lip and palate deformities is a procedure that, to this date, still demands great efforts from plastic surgeons. The feasibility of periosteoplasty for reconstruction of the alveolar arcade as well as the use of electrical stimulation in order to increase osteoneogenesis have been proven in the past. The present study attempts to combine both procedures that have only been reported separately worldwide. The objective of this study is to increase the osteogenic capacity and hence, dental eruption.
|Observational model||case control|
Male or female participants of any age.
- Patients with unilateral cleft lip and palate deformities and alveolar defects
- Patients without alveolar cleft
- Patients with syndromes that did not require periosteoplastic procedures as well as patients with systemic illnesses that may affect the result of the study (for instance diabetes)
