Purpose of review To give an update on recent publications and tendencies concerning complications in cleft orthognathic surgery.

Recent findings Cleft-specific changes after orthognathic surgery and their impact on surgical outcomes are discussed. Focus lays on the causes and mechanisms of cleft-related surgical complications and strategies to prevent or minimize these complications. Bimaxillary surgery is seen as a safe procedure for cleft patients. Maxillary distraction, total or segmental, is pointed out as an alternative method to improve outcomes. Different techniques for osteotomies and maxillary mobilization could decrease adverse events.

Summary Cleft patients are more susceptible to the occurrence of complications because of peculiar presurgical conditions. Different surgical approaches and techniques are presented to overcome these difficulties, to achieve better results and to increase patient safety. The importance of communication between patient, family and cleft team members is emphasized.
