چکیده
The purpose of this retrospective case-control study was to compare the
cephalometric features of parents of children with cleft anomalies to those of
parents of normal children in the hope of finding potential markers of predisposition
for this condition. There were 22 sets of parents of cleft children (study group) and
22 sets of parents of normal children (control group). A total of 88 lateral
cephalograms were traced twice by two observers separately and analyzed using
Student’s t-test. Seven linear, two angular and five triangular cephalometric
variables were measured. Mandibular body length (Go–Gn) in mothers was larger in
the study than the control group, posterior cranial base (S-Ba) in fathers was shorter
in the study than the control group, anterior maxillary triangle (S.N.A) in parents in
the study group was larger than in the control group and posterior maxillary triangle
(S.N.Pns) in study group mothers was larger than in control group mothers. In
conclusion, the craniofacial morphology of the parents of children with cleft
anomalies differs from that of parents of normal children and may have some
predictive value.
