This is a full-colour illustrative textbook written by highly experienced consultants from two different continents — Asia and Europe — which sets out to compare the two possibly dissimilar scenarios of maxillofacial trauma in relation to the epidemiology and aetiology of the two regions. All cases presented in this atlas are from the authors' personal experience during their day-to-day management of patients.
The surgical procedure is explained in a step-by-step manner which allows for better understanding, particularly by students who have not had the opportunity to observe the procedures in clinics and operating theatres. To ensure maximum comprehension of material, the text is written in a clear and concise manner and positioned alongside real-life photographs. Important decision-making points on some topics are highlighted within boxes.
