In this inaugural podcast, Pat Chibbaro interviews Oksana A. Jackson about her article, "Predicting Adverse Perioperative Events in Patients Undergoing Primary Cleft Palate Repair" published in volume 55 issue 4 of The Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Journal.
This study aimed to identify risk factors for adverse perioperative events (APEs) after cleft palatoplasty to develop an individualized risk assessment tool.
In conclusion, APE incidence was 23.0% after palatoplasty, with a 37-fold higher incidence in extreme-risk patients. Individualized risk assessment tools may enhance perioperative clinical decision making to mitigate complications.
