This study was an observational, cross sectional study with purpose to
analyze the effect of hotz plate appliance to the development of
maxillary arch of patients with cleft lip and palate. Twelve samples
with cleft lip andpalate, age under 2 years were recruitedfrom two
different hospitals. Six samples used hotz plate appliance were
recruited from Rumah Sakit Hasan Sadikin, Bandung while the other
six as control didn't use hotz plate appliance were recruited from
Rumah Sakit Haji, Makassar. The result showed that minor maxillary
arch was similar in size with major maxillary arch of patient with hotz
plate appliance, however, patient without hotz plate appliance,
showed longer minor maxillary arch than major maxillary arch. It can
be concluded from this study that hotz plate appliance had an effect
on the palatal development of patient with complete unilateral cleft lip
and palate and also prevented the collapse of minor maxillary arch to
either anterolateral or anteromedial.
