Abstract
  • This systematic review explores whether frenotomy (lingual frenulum division) improves breastfeeding outcomes for newborn infants with ankyloglossia. Ankyloglossia, also called tongue-tie, is a congenital anomaly whereby the baby has an unusually short or thick lingual frenulum. This condition can restrict breastfeeding by limiting tongue movement (NICE, 2005).
