The severity of craniofacial clefting is known to be extremely variable. Different classifications have been proposed however nomenclature is not uniform. If vertical, median craniofacial clefting…
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and evaluate scientific articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by researchers from dozens of countries and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute of Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
