This two-volume set details step-by-step, integrated diagnosis and management of maxillofacial and associated trauma injuries. It goes beyond the surgical management of head and neck trauma, and covers general management of traumatic injuries, systemic evaluation of the trauma patient, and special considerations addressed when dealing with traumatic injury. With over 80 highly respected contributors and nearly 2,000 images to illustrate injuries and their treatment, this comprehensive text provides all of the information necessary to offer the best care possible to the trauma patient.
- Logical organization of topics presents the material in an efficient way for better comprehension and enhanced readability.
- Contributors represent not only the specialties associated with oral and maxillofacial surgery, but also different areas of medicine such as anesthesiology, urology and otolaryngology.
- Key topics include:
- The management of trauma in pediatric and geriatric patients, both of whom suffer a high incidence of injury.
- The evaluation and management of neurologic injuries, one of the most significant causes of death from trauma.
- Wound healing, airway management, and radiographic evaluation - essential components of effective traumatic injury treatment.
- Coverage of shock - its pathophysiology, treatment, and management.
- The management of nasal fractures, a controversial and debated topic.
- Content has been updated to reflect current thinking and the latest techniques.
- Many new or completely rewritten chapters are included and feature new artwork. New chapters cover topics such as:
- Firearm injuries, one of the most devastating and difficult injuries to treat.
- Avulsive injuries to the maxillofacial complex, including the most effective, time-proven methods of evaluation, diagnosis and management.
- Traumatic injuries of the trigeminal nerve, describing microsurgery indications, nerve grafts, and outcomes.
- The impact traumatic injury has on society, including how the high cost of treatment affects patient care and management.
