Featured article: Mandibular growth in infants with Robin sequence treated with the Tübingen palatal plate

Robin sequence (RS) is characterized by retrognathia, glossoptosis and upper airway obstruction (UAO) with or without cleft palate. There are different approaches to treatment, but whether mandibular catch-up growth may occur in RS is still controversial. This research by Cornelia Wiechers et al. suggests that mandibular catch-up growth may occur in RS infants treated with the Tübingen Palatal Plate (TPP).
