Abstract: 
Introduction: cleft palate is one of the commonest congenital obnormalities and requires to repair at early ages. These patients often suffer from co-abnormalities, swallowing disorders, aspiration and upper respiratory infections, so anesthesia and surgeryare more sensitive. Frequent cases of upper abway obstruction caused by lingual swelling following the use of mouth gag has been reported after palatoplasty. This study compare two methods, continuosly applied and intermittently relieved, mouth gag, in prevention of macroglossia and airway obstruction. Methods: During this clinical trial, two groups of patients compared with each other. In group A, gag has been applied continuously all over the operation and in group B, gag has been relieved for 1 minutes to let circulation and venous drainage.Results: Twenty patients were studied in group A and upper airway obstruction was observed in 5 cases (4 relative and 1 complete obstruction), whereas in group B, included 40 patients, there was no obstruction and Macroglossia.Conclusion: With due attention to the necessity of careful and gentle manner in such cases, it seemes that intermittently gag relief method is more effective intervention of lingual edema and prevention of upper airway obstruction.
