Surgical Strategy for Complex Craniofacial Fractures

Abstract

As a rule, severe combined skull base and facial injuries are high-velocity traumas, which often result in multifragmental fractures of the skull base with intracranial dislocation of bone fragments, dural tears with subsequent liquorrhea and brain tissue herniation. Extensive intracranial injuries and disfiguring facial fractures often lead to severe functional deficiencies.
