New York/Stuttgart - Osteosynthesis is the process of uniting the ends of a fractured bone by mechanical means, such as using a metal plate or screw, and is performed for the treatment of fractures. The Atlas of Craniomaxillofacial Osteosynthesis unites international specialists who together dispense their expertise regarding a wide range of procedures for osteosynthesis in craniomaxillofacial and oral surgery. This highly anticipated second edition of the atlas, available through Thieme, thoroughly covers key advances in the field.
One of the most compelling aspects of this seminal text is its highly visual style. There are more than 350 drawings in this 240 page book, 70 of which are new to the fully updated reference. This edition features new techniques, applications, and instruments as well as six brand new chapters on topics such as innovative treatment approaches to condylar neck fractures, the application of resorbable plates and screws, and mandibular and maxillary bone distraction.
This second edition of the well-established clinical title is a standard surgical reference. Atlas of Craniomaxillofacial Osteosynthesis has long been recognized for excellence when it comes to learning and mastering principles and techniques in the field.
