The idea behind this book is to produce a fully comprehensive and highly illustrated "how to" technical reference manual, demonstrating surgical procedures in a step by step manner. This book also covers assessment and investigations, but focuses on the surgical and non surgical management of all aspect of maxillofacial trauma.
It will include most, if not all, of the surgical approaches and techniques used, for all injuries. This volume includes emergency procedures and the various techniques in repair of fractures and soft tissue injuries, from the simple to the complex. Each step is illustrated photographically or with line diagrams, with explanatory text.
This will enable surgical trainees and surgeons with limited trauma experience to understand how and why any particular procedure is undertaken.

"This volume sets out to provide a comprehensive coverage of all aspects of facial injuries. ... There are numerous well-documented cases that enable the reader to consider important principles as well as early and definitive management. I recommend this volume as a valuable reference source for both trainees and those who wish to augment their facial trauma skills."

Otolaryngologists, plastic and reconstructive surgeons with an interest in facial trauma, radiologists seeking to image and identify gross and subtle injuries, and general trauma providers are an appropriate audience for this work ... . this is an excellent training tool for postgraduate fellows or registrars and a worthy office reference for more senior providers."
