Manual of Internal Fixation in the Cranio-Facial SkeletonMarch 25, 2000

An extremely useful book that summarize the current methods recommended by A.O. on internal fixation of craniofacial skeleton. I think the first chapter on the basic concept and various methods of internal fixation is particularly well written and must be read. The schematic drawings for various fracture fixation give a strong visual impression on the fixation technique. Everybodies who are interested in craniofacial fixation should kept a copy for quick reference.
