OBJECTIVE: To compare results of Golson Yardstick measurement of dental arch relationships in a sample of 10-year-old Polish children with results of the Golson measurement in published reports. MATERIALS AND METHODS: Plaster models of 28 consecutively treated subjects with unilateral cleft lip and palate (UCLP) that was repaired with a one-stage simultaneous closure performed in the first year of life. All individuals were born between 1994 and 1995. The Goslon score (categories 1 to 5) was allocated. Intra- and interrater agreement was assessed with kappa statistics and Pearson correlation coefficient. Independent t tests were employed to detect difference between the score in the present and other published samples. RESULTS: Mean Goslon score equaled 2.44; 57% of the patients were allocated Goslon category 1 or 2, 32% were rated Goslon 3, and 11% of the patients were assigned category 4 or 5. Intrarater agreement was between 0.75 and 0.77. Interrater agreement was 0.79. CONCLUSIONS: Dental arch relationship following one-stage repair was comparable with the results of the centers with the best outcome.
