      THE VALUE OF THE POSAS QUESTIONNAIRE IN ASSESSING POSTOPERATIVE SCARRING OF PATIENTS WITH CLEFT LIP (Abstract): The aim of the study is the postoperative scar assessement of patients with cleft lip for a complete functional evaluation. The study contains patients aged 2 to 14 years who were operated for at least 6 months after the start of the study and did not have secondary reparative interventions. By comparing the patient’s total score with the observer’s score, patients and parents are more satisfied with the appearance of postoperative scarring. Patient opinion is the most important in the evaluation of a scar. The fact that patients have a good view of the appearance of scarring is probably due to the fact that they still have the pre-operative aspect and because they have adapted to the actual physical appearance.
Key words: CLEFT LIP, POSTOPERATIVE SCAR, ASSESSEMENT
