Our book

There is a great demand for people that can perform cleft lip surgeries, especially in developing countries.

In July 2008 Bart van de Ven, Joel Defrancq and Ellen Defrancq published the book 'Cleft Lip Surgery, a Practical Guide'.

The idea behind this book is to explain in simple and clear terminology how a primary lip closure in a cleft patient can be performed.

If you follow this book step by step, you have a framework to perform the surgey.

The three operations as described in this book can be seen on video. These videos will surely help you, in combination with the book, to gain good insight in these operations.
