Main description:

This book is full of operative pearls and details
that are not only instructive for the trainee but a refreshing review for those
experienced in managing maxillofacial trauma. It is a comprehensive dissertation
of facial fracture repair and certainly will be valued by anyone who practices

Buttresses are the basis for reduction and repair of craniomaxillofacial
fractures and are essential for determining the optimal location, for placement
of reparative plates and screws. Craniomaxillofacial Buttresses: Anatomy and Operative Repair endorses surgical anatomy as a
basis for operative intervention.

Special Features:

  • The first book to bring together
    experts in the five surgical areas involved in craniomaxillofacial
    (CMF) reconstruction after trauma: plastic surgery, oculoplastic surgery,
    otolaryngology-head and neck surgery, ophthalmology, and neurosurgery

  • Parallels between architecture and CMF anatomy, basic
    biomechanics, and advanced finite analysis depict the distribution of impact and the modern principles
    of operative repair

  • Algorithms and illustrations, by renowned artist
    William Winn, reinforce a logical sequence of clinical management

  • Compelling preoperative, intra-operative, and
    postoperative photographs and supplemental text illustrate exemplary repair

From the frontal boss to the lower jaw, this book brings together history, applied surgical anatomy, and operative techniques in the CMF region in a way not seen since the classic by Reed O. Dingman and Paul Natvig in 1964. An educational reference for medical students, residents, fellows, and clinicians, Craniomaxillofacial Buttresses: Anatomy and Operative Repair simplifies board review-and-study.
