Reconstructive Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery

This book describes the reconstructive procedures currently used by the authors for the treatment of oral and maxillofacial defects, based on twenty-five years of experience at a major European University Hospital. The coverage encompasses mandibular, maxillary, orbitocranial, intraoral soft tissue and cutaneous defect reconstruction. Controversies in defect reconstruction are discussed, and clear guidance is given on the optimal choice of reconstructive technique according to the location and size of the defect. Full descriptions are provided of both aesthetic and functional procedures, with use of implants and dental prostheses. The resultant functional and aesthetic reconstruction will enable the patient quickly to resume a normal social, family and professional life. All of the chapters include representative images depicting each stage of treatment, from preoperative study, through intraoperative and postoperative appearances, to ultimate outcome upon rehabilitation.
