Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery in Children
Surgery is always planned in three dimensions, but for pediatric patients, the fourth dimension—growth—is instrumental in proper treatment planning. In this book, experts in the fields of pediatric oral and maxillofacial surgery describe how to perform operations with this parameter in mind. The book covers congenital and syndromic facial deformities as well as acquired conditions, benign and malignant tumors, and trauma. All ages from neonates to adolescents are included, with a special focus on appropriate timing for surgery, taking into consideration anatomical functionality and the psychosocial well-being of the patient. Intrasurgical photographs and detailed illustrations complement the text, showing procedures step by step and providing long-term follow-up for actual cases. Anatomical areas include not only the oral cavity, mandible, and midface but the ears, eyes, TMJs, and skull, and additional locations for bone and tissue graft harvesting are also discussed. This text will be an indispensable guide for anyone who performs oral and maxillofacial surgery on growing individuals.
