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. Special Features: o This 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. o 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 o A recurring, two-part format provides continuity from chapter to chapter. Part One identifies the anatomy of a specific CMF region; Part Two serially depicts clinical presentation, radiographic evaluation, modern techniques of operative repair, and potential collateral damage. o Algorithms and illustrations, by renowned artist William Winn, reinforce a logical sequence of clinical management. o Compelling preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative photographs andsupplemental text illustrate exemplary repair. o Key References for repair of each anatomic region are especially helpful, when managing complex injuries, and Additional Biography allows the reader to further research 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.
