This clinical study aims at evaluating the effect of music therapy on pain relief and postoperative analgesic requirement in patients with unilateral cleft lip undergoing repair by Tennison's triangular variant, in the age group of 6-12 months. A total of 105 patients fulfilling the inclusion criteria were included in this study with 50 patients receiving music therapy and 55 patients not receiving the same. The hemodynamic parameters and objective pain scale by Hanallah were assessed by a person blinded to the groups. When tested, the results showed a statistically significant decrease in the mean number of times fentanyl was required and in the mean pain score. However, there was no significant difference between the 2 groups with respect to oxygen saturation and heart rate.
