Orthodontically driven corticotomy: tissue engineering to enhance orthodontic and multidisciplinary treatment / edited by Dr. Federico Brugnami, Dr. Alfonso Caiazzo.

D 617.644 O77 B

The first book of its kind, Orthodontically Driven Corticotomy describes how to apply this innovative technique to orthodontic treatment protocols. More than simply discussing orthodontic applications, the editors demonstrate how corticotomies enhance inter- and multidisciplinary treatments. Different surgical approaches are described, with indications on how to select the most appropriate one, to increase efficiency of orthodontic movement, and minimize the surgical exposure for the patient at the same time. Readers learn how to apply the technique to expand the basal bone, regenerate periodontal tissues, combine corticotomy and anchorage devices, manage partial edentulism, treat impacted teeth, and become more efficient in orthodontic treatment. Surgical steps are demonstrated with more than 650 clinical photographs and 200 illustrations.

Atlas of operative maxillofacial trauma surgery: primary repair of facial injuries / Michael Perry, Simon Holmes, editors.

D 617.52059 A881


The idea behind this book is to produce a fully comprehensive and highly illustrated “how to” technical reference manual, demonstrating surgical procedures in a step by step manner. This book also covers assessment and investigations, but focuses on the surgical and non-surgical management of all aspect of maxillofacial trauma.

It will include most, if not all, of the surgical approaches and techniques used, for all injuries. This volume includes emergency procedures and the various techniques in repair of fractures and soft tissue injuries, from the simple to the complex. Each step is illustrated photographically or with line diagrams, with explanatory text.

This will enable surgical trainees and surgeons with limited trauma experience to understand how and why any particular procedure is undertaken.
