The book covers the entire scope of traumatology in the important border area between the neuro- and viscerocranium. It focuses on diagnostic operation planning and the interdisciplinary management of craniofacial injuries. In the first part, the classification and epidemiology of craniofacial fractures are outlined and specific problems are discussed. The second part deals with radiologic diagnostics and basic neurosurgical measures. The main part of the book covers operative principles and a step-by-step description of hard and soft tissue reconstruction after craniofacial trauma. Complications of craniofacial injuries and late reconstruction of craniofacial defects, including computer-assisted planning, are covered in the final part.
