Abstract

The Sri Lankan Cleft Lip and Palate Project (SLCLPP) was founded in 1984 and completed data collection in 2009. Surgical visits were undertaken in 1985, 1986 and 1990. More than 500 surgical patients have been followed up longitudinally for 25 years post-operatively, resulting in the creation of a unique multidisciplinary archive. In total, 14 data collection visits were made from 1984 to 2009 (Mars et al. 2008).
