Description / Abstract:


Optimal management of patients who have sustained facial truma requires a collaborative interdisciplinary approach that incorporates the clinical expertise of a number of related specialties. This book reflects the efforts and the contributions to this field from eminent practitioners intimately involved in the challenging care and management of patients who have required reconstruction of both acute and established injuries to the facial hard and soft tissue. Although the treatment of facial injuries has made dramatic advances over the last decade due to our improved knowledge of wound healing, anatomy, diagnostic testing, and biomaterials, we trace our current refinements to the pioneering efforts of craniofacial surgery and the work of Dr. Paul Tessier of Paris, France. This book integrates the significant contributions made by basic science into the comprehensive care of this condition as well as the most recent clinical advances in the evaluation and management of facial injuries.

We give special thanks to our contributors, who willingly shared their own experience in order to expand our readers' knowledge base and improve our colleagues' final results in the care of their own clinical cases.

This book is dedicated to my wife, Pat, and children, Cody and Lexi Lee, who allow me the time to take care of my patients and educate our residents, and to my parents, who afforded me the opportunity to become a doctor.
