Methods: Obtained the simple model of nasal vestibule in 15 cases children with mild cleft palate alone, between the ages of 7–24 months, under general anaesthesia, with silicone rubber impression materials; observed and measured the gypsum model and analyzed statistically the measurement results.

Results: Nasal vestibular fornix is the highest site of the nasal vestibule and its height is less variation than the notril which is the common site in clinics.
