Forty-eight subjects with repaired palatal clefts were divided into three major groups on the basis of speech symptoms and were examined for velopharyngeal valving integrity by means of the R-D nasal manometer, prcssurcflow techniques, the Hunter oral manometer, and vidcofluoroscopy. Vidcofluoroscopy appeared to provide data that most nearly agreed with predictions of valving made from speech. The Hunter oral manometer wax the least useful of the four techniques. © 1981 American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
