REVIEW OF CURRENT EDITION:
"This magnificent text utilizes 119 international contributors and over 1300 illustrations to provide information about the history and development of distraction osteogenesis and its application to craniofacial deformities and/or deficiencies. The fact that the authors chose to present all of the topics in one extremely comprehensive textbook underscores a very strong theme of multidiscipline care for patients requiring treatment of facial deformities and related problems. Maxillofacial prosthodontists, maxillofacial surgeons, and orthodontists can best utilize this comprehensive text, especially those professionals who are part of a multidiscipline team treating patients with facial deformities."

"Craniofacial Distraction Osteogenesis" showcases the technique that has become one of the hottest topics in orthodontics and oral and maxillofacial surgery today. Distraction osteogenesis is a surgical process for reconstruction of skeletal deformities that involves gradual, controlled displacement of surgicaly created fractures resulting in simultaneous expansion of soft tissue and bone volume. This technique evolved from the work of Gavriel Ilizarov in Kurgan, Siberia in the 1960s. With advances made in the past 40 years, the procedure is now being applied to deformities of the jaws and dentoalveolar process with a refined technique mastered by the lead author, Mikhail L. Samchukov, MD. This unique reference book displays the incredible advancements made in this technique from experts all over the world.
