Ear Reconstruction
of the ear is one of the mostchallenging problems faced by a reconstructive surgeon -- it demands precise technique combined with artistic creativity. In this chapter of the Craniofacial Surgery book, you will learn about state-of-the-art treatments for Microtia, Traumatic Ear Deformities and Otoplasty (commonly known as prominent or protruding ears).

Craniosynostosis
Craniosynostosis is a premature closing of one or more of the normally present bony gaps between the different bones of the skull. Learn about the surgical treatment of craniosynostosis that has been transformed by the development of craniofacial techniques in combination with the operative team approach of both a craniofacial surgeon and a neurosurgeon.

Apert Syndrome
This deformity is extremely rare and very complex. It includes variations of many facial anomalies. Patients with Apert syndrome have bilateral coronal synostosis in combination with upper and midface retrusion as well as fusion of fingers and toes. This chapter includes different cases studies and the multidisciplinary approach applied to their individual needs.

Crouzon Syndrome
Crouzon Syndrome is a rare congenital condition marked by craniosynostosis, exorbitism and midface retrusion. It affects one in 25,000 children. Patients with Crouzon's have very distinct facial features similar to Apert syndrome. Read this chapter to learn more about this deformity and its treatment.

Treacher Collins Syndrome
A highly complex disease process, Treacher Collins Syndrome is characterized by hypoplasia of the facial bones, especially in the areas of the jaw and eyes. Facial clefting causes this hypoplasic appearance, with possible deformities or deficiencies of the ear, orbit, midface and lower jaw.

Craniomaxillofacial Trauma
Millions of people sustain trauma to the head and face resulting in complex fractures which, if not correctly diagnosed and treated, may cause permanent functional and cosmetic deformities. Although immediate treatment is the best way to attain pre-injury facial appearance, advances in craniofacial surgery offer hope for patients with pre-existing post-traumatic deformities as well.

Orbital Reconstruction
This chapter highlights several areas of orbital deformities including: encephaloceles, orbital hypertelorism, enopthalmos and exopthalmos. Also within this chapter, facial bipartition and monobloc advancement are covered.
