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.
- Comprehensive chapters on each facial bone injury including protocols for the overall management of each fracture.
- An extensive section on secondary procedures 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.
- Offers complete coverage of maxillofacial trauma highlighted by an unparalleled collection of outstanding, full-color photographs, and highly detailed line drawings that clarify surgical procedures.
- Addresses secondary surgery in a dedicated section, covering such topics as facial scar management; secondary osteotomies and bone grafting to correct deformities; bone distraction, used commonly with congenital malformations; secondary rhinoplasty for traumatic nasal deformities, which are associated with a variety of cosmetic and functional issues; secondary orbital surgery; facial nerve injuries; and psychological support for patient with facial trauma.
- Features an outstanding, full-color art program, with more than 750 color photos that cover all aspects of injury and treatment, and 250 color line drawings that walk you step by step through surgical procedures.
- Includes contributions from a "who's who" list of international experts in oral and maxillofacial surgery, psychology, ophthalmology, neurosurgery, plastic surgery, and craniofacial surgery.
New to This Edition

"Maxillofacial Trauma and Esthetic Facial Reconstruction is a comprehensive text dealing with a difficult area and where competing titles are plentiful. This book is refreshing and seems to add a new perspective in this genre with the combination of facial trauma management and reconstruction in the one hardback book. For this reason together with the shear quantity and quality of the photos and illustrations - this book is highly recommended."
