Abstract

Otitis media (OM) is one of the most common infections diagnosed in young children around the world. Approximately $5.0 billion is spent annually on healthcare costs related to OM. Studies have shown OM to be highly prevalent (near 100%) in individuals with orofacial clefts (OC). OCs are the most common craniofacial birth defect in the world with approximately one in 500 to 1000 live births being affected. The medical costs for corrective surgeries alone pose a significant public health problem. These two conditions combined create a significant burden on the health, quality of life, and socioeconomic well-being of those affected and their family members.
