The objective of the present paper was to describe the application of a cleft palate repair technique in an oroantral communication treatment. A patient from an Oral Surgery department presented oroantral fistula in the midline palate after removal of a cystic lesion. The oroantral communication was closed using a modified palatal flap rotation. The use of this technique proved to be an effective treatment for this type of pathology.
