'Fractures of the Facial Skeleton' is a new book based on two texts which have been required reading for the dental undergraduate until very recently: 'Killey's Fractures of the Mandible' and 'Fractures of the Middle Third of the Facial Skeleton'. Althoughthe revised text remains an exam-based guide to both practical techniques and clinical information, the new structure and format reflects the changes in the patterns and treatment of facial injuries in the contemporary trauma environment. Co-authored by two respected maxillofacial surgeons, this new book is invaluable for all trainees in oral and maxillofacial surgery. It is also a useful reference for plastic and otolaryngology trainees, as well as general, orthopaedic and accident surgeons.
