Overview

This manual provides comprehensive information on the surgical techniques in internal fixation of fractures, in restoring tumour defects, and osteotomies in the craniofacial skeleton. Through detailed and instructive drawings together with clinical situations shown on x-rays it offers important guidelines for the surgeon in the operating room. The techniques are based on the general principles developed and continuously refined by the AO/ASIF group. This manual constitutes the written guideline of the surgical techniques as taught in the AO/ASIF courses and workshops throughout the world.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Christian J. Luzar, DMD (University of Chicago Medical Center)
Description: This is the manual advocated by the AO/ASIF organization as the definitive text on internal fixation. The book is the compilation of multispecialty research across the world. The text presents necessary background information as well as the principles and techniques developed over the years.
Purpose: Internal fixation has become quite popular over the last 30 to 40 years due to its ability to provide early pain-free movement, precise anatomical reduction, and adequate functional fixation. The book's purpose is to act as the definitive manual on this subject with regards to the craniofacial skeleton. The book provides the current AO/ASIF philosophy, instrumentation, and techniques used. The AO/ASIF objectives in endorsing this text are to make these procedures logical and predictable, which is indeed a worthy endeavor.
Audience: This book has a highly focused audience. It is written for oral surgeons/residents, ENT surgeons/residents and plastic surgeons/residents, or any other surgeon who deals with facial trauma, reconstruction, and craniofacial rehabilitation. The contributors in this text are, for the most part, a well-known, diverse international group with very good credibility. The AO/ASIF group who backs this text is also quite a credible authority, and deserves credit for developing many of the principles and instrumentation outlined here.
Features: This text is loaded with pictures, radiographs, and appropriate color illustrations. The references are up-to-date and pertinent in most chapters; overall the text is appropriately illustrated and referenced. The book is logically organized for easy reference and is well written for easy reading and comprehension. Overall, I believe the book is well done, in certain chapters it lightly covers major adjunctive areas of reconstruction inadequately, but this is a text on fixation, not comprehensive craniofacial/oral surgery.
Assessment: This book is well done and reads well; the contributors are highly credible and it shows in their writing and reference material. My only criticism is that some areas, such as aesthetic soft tissue surgical approaches, are not covered in enough detail. Planning for elective orthognathic cases is not really covered at all. I believe the editor assumes that the reader's inherent knowledge of oral/maxillofacial surgical procedures will account for obvious shortcomings in certain sections. This approach is appropriate as it is only meant to be the definitive manual on plate fixation, and not on comprehensive reconstruction. Lastly, there are no sections on resorbable plates used for reconstruction. The editor makes short reference to them in passing, but I believe a more in-depth discussion would be warranted, as they appear to be coming into favor in some areas.
