Introductory Text on the Complexities of the Craniofacial Skeleton

New York, NY, September 27, 2012 --( “Principles of Internal Fixation of the Craniomaxillofacial Skeleton,” recently published by the AOCMF, presents the focused expertise and competence of the different specialties on the entire craniofacial skeleton. There are no facial fracture textbooks in any of the involved specialties that deal with introductory principles in the same amount of detail as the “Principles of Internal Fixation of the Craniomaxillofacial Skeleton.” Traditionally, each specialty has had its own areas of interest and expertise.

The principles described in this textbook represent the evolution of craniomaxillofacial buttress reconstruction over the last 60 years. In addition to standard procedures, techniques representing recent surgical advances and new developments are introduced.

This textbook not only provides an overview of current concepts of craniomaxillofacial trauma care and orthognathic surgery but also helps readers understand the complexity of the craniofacial skeleton and its related soft tissues. It is unique in that it combines and focuses the expertise and competence of different specialties on the entire craniofacial skeleton, resulting in a comprehensive work of considerable breadth.
