Complications and Late Sequelae Following Craniofacial Reconstruction

  • Nicolas Hardt
Chapter

Abstract

The early and late complications following treatment of severe craniofacial injuries cannot always be differentiated from those of the injury itself. Complications may develop with or without and despite or because of a surgical intervention (Sprick 1988; Schmidek and Sweet 1988).
