Now in a long awaited second edition, this groundbreaking atlas of osteosynthesis in craniomaxillofacial and oral surgery has been fully updated to reflect new techniques, applications, instruments, and materials. Illustrated in detailed, highly instructive full-color drawings, the book covers key advances in craniomaxillofacial and oral surgery, including the use of resorbable plates and screws, modern techniques of bone distraction, and the advanced treatment of trauma and congenital deformities. Complete with the relevant anatomy and biomechanics, physiology of bone repair and fracture healing, and the management of possible complications, the Atlas of Craniomaxillofacial Osteosynthesis: Microplates, Miniplates, and Screws is a true standard in the field. Highlights:
  • Includes six entirely new chapters on lingual hematoma, innovative treatment approaches of condylar neck fractures, the application of resorbable plates and screws and the material-specific techniques, and alveolar, mandibular, and maxillary bone distraction
  • Features thorough updates on orthognathic, craniofacial, and preprosthetic surgery
  • Offers proven treatment approaches by international experts who have applied the principles of osteosynthesis in a wide range of procedures
  • Presents more than 350 outstanding full-color drawings, 70 of them new to this edition, visualizing the relevant anatomy and surgical techniques
  • The second edition of this outstanding atlas is highly recommended as a how-to guide and surgical reference for all practitioners and trainees who deal with the challenges of craniomaxillofacial and oral surgery, particularly maxillofacial, oral, and plastic surgeons, as well as neurosurgeons and otolaryngologists.

    An excellent book on craniomaxillofacial osteosynthesis. The authors have have very nicely presented the relevant text and images. In this atlas the versatility of miniplate osteosynthesis has been very nicely presented. In the book there are separate chapters on practical application of miniplates in midface , mandibular fractures including osteotomies of mandible and maxilla and orthognathic surgery. The book also covers aspects of distraction osteogenesis and microsurgical anastmosis of the fibula and scapula. The book is very useful for maxillofacial surgery students and maxillofacial surgeons.
