Overview

This comprehensive textbook, edited by world-renowned experts in the field, provides answers to challenges in the diagnosis and treatment of craniofacial anomalies.The book integrates basic science and clinical perspectives, creating a more unified and practical “patient centered” approach. Organized in a logical, easy-to-follow structure, this reference reviews and presents cutting-edge findings, covering the state of the art in craniosynostosis and facial clefting from molecular, genetic, cellular, tissue, organismic, and populations levels. Using standardized nomenclature and consistent terminology, Understanding Craniofacial Anomalies incorporates the recent explosion of growth in studying genetic and epigenetic etiologies of syndromes, thereby providing a unique and holistic review of this important topic.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“A very useful book…well written, amplyillustrated…” (Journal of Endocrine Genetics,Vol 3 No 3, 2003)

"This book provides an excellent introduction to craniofacialanomalies. It provides a good mix of basic science and clinicalaspects and reflects the recent explosion of growth in theknowledge about the study of genetics." (Doody's)

"...A very useful book..." (Journal of PediatricEndocrinology & Metabolism)

"...appropriately thorough and learned summary of the state ofknowledge of craniofacial evolution and embryology...."(Pediatric and Developmental Pathology, Vol. 6, 2002)

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Rodrigue G. Barakat, DMD (Loyola University Medical Center)
Description: This is a unique reference and textbook in the area of craniofacial anomalies. It is a first of its kind.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide the reader with an understanding of two main enitites: craniosynostosis and facial clefting. It certainly achieves this goal while providing additional references.
Audience: This book targets a wide audience, from the unergraduate student to the graduate student. Multiple professionnals involved in the topic, molecular biologists, geneticists, craniofacial biologists, pathologists, specialists in growth and development, craniofacial surgeons, plastic surgeons, oral and maxillofacial surgeons, neurosurgeons, otolarynoglogists, dentists and speech and hearing pathologists.
Features: The book is divided into seven sections and 22 chapters. The sections cover classification and terminology, embryogenesis and etiology, animal modeling, cranial vault and cranial base dysmorphology and growth disturbances, mandibular and midfacial dysmorphology and growth disturbances, regional dysmorphology and growth disturbances, and, finally, molecular biology studies and future directions. Several perspectives are presented, including evolutionary, molecular, genetic, embryonic, growth and developemental, and dysmorphic.
Assessment: This book provides an excellent introduction to craniofacial anomalies. It provides a good mix of basic science and clinical aspects and reflects the recent explosion of growth in the knowledge about the study of genetics. This book takes different aspects of all the disciplines involved in craniofacial anomalies and puts it under one title.
From The Critics
This text presents an up-to-date guide to the etiology and pathogenesis of two of the most common craniofacial birth defects (craniosynostosis and facial clefting) from evolutionary, molecular, genetic, embryonic, growth and development, and dysmorphic perspectives. The 22 chapters, written by authorities in the field, discuss classification and terminology, embryogenesis and etiology, animal modeling, growth disturbances related to cranial vault and cranial base dysmorphology and midfacial and mandibular dysmorphology, molecular biology studies, and future directions. Illustrated with b&w photographs and images. Appropriate for undergraduate, graduate, preprofessional, and professional students, and clinicians. Edited by Mooney and Siegel, both of the Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Center, U. of Pittsburgh. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
