Learn how key structures of classical architecture impact surgical anatomy, preoperative planning, and operative repair of CMF fractures, leading to improved outcomes.
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.
- "Buttresses" is the first book to coalesce the expertise of the five specialties 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 (load-forces to-and-from the craniofacial skeleton) and the modern principles of operative repair
- A recurring, two-part format provides continuity, from chapter to chapter. Part 1 identifies the anatomy of a specific CMF region; Part 2 serially depicts clinical presentation, radiographic evaluation, modern techniques of operative repair, and potential collateral damage.
- 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.
- Key References for repair of each anatomic region are especially helpful, when managing complex injuries; Additional Biography allows the reader to efficiently delve further, in select cases.
From the frontal boss to the lower jaw, this book is one-of-a-kind and 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.
From the foreword I by Robert M. Goldwyn, MD: [The text is] "gracefully written" every word has been chosen carefully. Seldom is a reader fortunate enough to find and learn from a book so much, so effortlessly."
From the foreword II by Paul M. Manson, MD: "There are no facial fracture texts in any of the five specialties that deal with facial injury in this amount of detail; nor do they cover all of the craniofacial areas of modern interest, as does this text."
