Abstract

• Pierre Robin syndrome is a triad of micrognathia, glossoptosis, and cleft palate that results in upper airway obstruction and feeding problems. This syndrome occurred in six cases; five of these cases required surgical correction to alleviate the airway problems. A modification of the Douglas lip-tongue adhesion was used to prevent the problem of early separation of the adhesion. The patients have had resolution of the airway and feeding problems, with early discharge from the hospital. There has been minimal morbidity and no mortality associated with the procedure. (Arch Otolaryngol 1981;107:419-421).
