The second edition of MAXILLOFACIAL TRAUMA AND ESTHETIC FACIAL RECONSTRUCTION was released in late October 2011. It is a follow-up addition to the very popular first edition by the same name that was initially released in 2003. Since no one surgeon has a monopoly on the wisdom and experience of every aspect of facial trauma, this new edition brings together input from 57 authors from plastic surgery, maxillofacial surgery, otorhinolaryngology and ophthalmology in 33 chapters. Covering the broad topics of Principles, Definitive Management, Secondary Surgery and Innovations, the texts covers the entire scope of the treatment of facial injuries up through secondary revisions which are the norm and not the exception. Dr. Barry Eppley, Indianapolis plastic and maxillofacial surgeon, personally either wrote solely or made major contributions nearly 1/3 (ten chapters) of the book. Covering the topics of Etiology and Prevention of Craniomaxillofacial Trauma, Medicolegal Implications of Facial Injuries, Principles of Facial Soft Tissue Injury Repair, Alloplastic Biomaterials for Facial Reconstruction, Surgical Access, Nasal Fractures, Primary Repair of Facial Soft Tissue Injuries, Reconstruction of Large Hard and Soft Tissue Loss of the Face, Facial Burns and Secondary Rhinoplasty for Traumatic Nasal Deformities, Dr. Eppley shared his broad experience in this field as a double-board certified Plastic and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgeon.
