Changes in the etiology and management of Maxillofacial Trauma over the past 10 years have led to the need for a new book on this complex area of trauma. "Maxillofacial Trauma" is a landmark new one-volume, full colour text covering all aspects of the management of facial trauma. Written by an international team of oral and maxillofacial and plastic surgeons, "Maxillofacial Trauma" provides detailed practical guidance from the moment the trauma patient arrives in hospital to the secondary procedures that may be needed for reconstruction of hard and soft tissue injuries of the face. All aspects of maxillofacial trauma are covered - from management of the acute trauma case to secondary procedures to improve facial appearance and function. There are comprehensive chapters on each facial bone injury including protocols for the overall management of each fracture. It includes an extensive section on secondary procedures that attempts to improve the final outcome of trauma. A review is included for all new bio materials used in the repair of facial fractures. 750 color prints demonstrate clearly the final results from primary repair and secondary procedures.
250 surgical line illustrations show step-by-step surgical procedures. This book should be read by all those who face the challenges of facial trauma. Trainee and practicing oral, maxillofacial, otolaryngologic and plastic surgeons will find it particularly valuable.
