Covers a practical step-by-step approach of procedures to treat craniofacial fractures.
This definitive book on surgery for craniofacial trauma covers a wide range of procedures that cross a number of specialties. Each procedure has been updated to reflect current methods being utilized today. Although the focus is on the facial skeleton, there are adequate presentations to orient the reader to vascular, central nervous system, dental, and ophthalmic injuries, which is important as most of these injuries cross specialties.
