Atlas of Craniomaxillofacial Fixation
This volume is the most complete and user-friendly surgical atlas on rigid fixation techniques for the bones of the face and skull. It provides step-by-step guidance on the latest rigid fixation techniques for all types of craniomaxillofacial skeletal surgery, including trauma surgery, oncologic surgery, and orthognathic and craniofacial surgery. The book is designed to enable the surgeon to look up a specific technique and quickly find it displayed concisely and clearly, with a minimum of text and with outstanding illustrations depicting each step. Coverage begins with well-illustrated chapters on instrumentation and implants, principles and biomechanics of rigid fixation, principles and techniques of screw placement, surgical approaches to the face, and techniques for harvesting and preparing calvarial, rib, and iliac crest bone grafts. The remainder of the book presents fixation techniques for fractures of each anatomic region of the face and for orthognathic and craniofacial surgery fixations after various osteotomies. Cross-references listed after each technique guide readers to information elsewhere in the book on relevant principles and ancillary techniques.
