Overview

The book Synopsis of Management of Maxillofacial Injuries is a new introduction into maxillofacial trauma literature. The title is relevant considering the fact the book is written in a style that makes reading very interesting; essential facts regarding management are clearly highlighted; explanations are brief and precise. The book is unique in the sense that it gives a clear knowledge and understanding of the step-by-step clinical approach to the diagnosis and treatment of patients with maxillofacial and associated injuries in other parts of the body. It is a twelve chapter book and provides sequential description of standard approaches to management of patients from the point of emergency to definitive treatment of specific maxillofacial injuries. It incorporates sufficient details on plastic and reconstructive surgical management of soft tissue injuries of the face, including salivary glands and nerves. Bearing in mind that a maxillofacial surgeon may have to stabilize the patient and decide on appropriate triage, the authors described practical steps that could enable prompt diagnosis of associated systemic injuries for prompt consults as well as assist the casualty and non maxillofacial surgeons to diagnose maxillofacial injuries and hasten referral.

The book Synopsis of management of Maxillofacial Injuries is a must-read for medical and dental students, general medical practitioners and emergency physicians, oral and maxillofacial residents, and all other resident doctors and specialists.
