After palatoplasty operations, we are faced with a palatal fistula rate of 30% repair which is one of the most difficult tasks in Plastic Surgery. Placement of a biological material between the two anatomic layers of the palate was performed to reduce the rate of fistula formation. Commercially available “fascia lata” homograft was used in order to decrease the time of operation and avoid donor site morbidity. This method has reduced the rate of palatal fistulae to 8.3%.
