Frontofacial Monobloc Advancement with Internal Distraction: Tactics and Strategy in Faciocraniosynostosis (EPUB)
By Eric Arnaud, Giovanna Paternoster, Roman Hossein Khonsari, Samer E. Haber
Based on the experience at one of the largest centers for craniosynostosis and craniofacial malformations, this book reports on the clinical use of a rare technique known as Frontofacial Monobloc Advancement (FFMBA), one of the most rewarding procedures for upper- and mid-face reconstruction in patients with faciocraniosynostosis, a rare craniofacial anomaly associated with premature fusion of multiple cranial sutures presenting with brachycephaly, orbital proptosis, maxillary hypoplasia and anterior crossbite.
Technical refinements and strategic planning have made it almost a routine procedure at the French Reference Center for Craniosynostosis and Craniofacial Malformations.
This easy-to-consult, well illustrated book includes technical tips and indications for its use in Crouzon, Pfeiffer and Apert syndromes. It also provides a protocol, including a proposed management algorithm for faciocraniosynostosis. As such, it will appeal to craniofacial surgeons, especially those at large craniofacial centers.
