Case Studies of Missed Tongue Ties and Subsequent Consequences

by Melanie Henstrom, BS, IBCLC
  • Duration: 60 Mins
  • Credits: 1 CERP, 1 L-CERP, 1 Dietetic CEU
  • Learning Format: Webinar
  • Handout: Yes

Improve your investigation skills as we walk through case studies of infants with tongue ties that were initially missed and the subsequent consequences. We will then review once the ties were found how a frenectomy with complete release improved or completely resolved their symptoms. We will examine studies that involve infants with Down syndrome, G tube, NG tubes, and failure to thrive. Learners will be empowered to assess with more accuracy by relying on their knowledge of symptoms and function in addition to standard anatomical assessments. This will improve outcomes for breastfeeding dyads allowing more tongue-ties to be found earlier on.

Learning Objectives:

1. Explain the importance of considering additional aspects of why infants may be struggling beyond syndromes
2. Describe how low tone causing breastfeeding struggles in Down syndrome infants is not always from the syndrome, but can be from an untreated tongue tie
3. Explain why tongue tie release should be considered before G tube
4. Describe how to help infants that are diagnosed “Failure to Thrive”
