With over 1,100 illustrations this atlas lays out a clear step-by-step approach to procedures that treat craniofacial fractures. Since many of the procedures covered in this atlas cross a number of other specialties, presentations on vascular, central nervous system, dental and ophthalmic injuries are also included.

In this latest edition, there are several new chapters including Imaging of the Craniofacial Fractures, Plates, Materials, and Instrumentation; Multidisciplinary Approach to Trauma; and Free Flap Reconstruction of the Mandible.
