      RESULTS OF THE PROSPECTIVE STUDY OF CLEFT LIP (Abstract): The aim of the study is primarily to specify the results obtained from surgical treatment, to observe the results of using the multidisciplinary protocol and to assess how they influence the growth and further development of the child. The study is conducted over a period of 5 years and includes a group of 18 patients, children admitted in the Constanta County Emergency Clinical Hospital. The appearance of scarring can cause cosmetic, functional and psychological problems. The appearance of a scar is influenced by localization, dimensions, suture technique, used suture material, postoperative wound healing, age, genetic predisposition. The aesthetic and functional results of surgical treatment can only be evaluated in a few years. Clefts lip and palate affect physical appearance, speech, occlusion, so we will evaluate the result at the end of the growth period. Poor results are related to: lack of protocols and periodic checkings, fragmented care.
