Abstract

Facial fractures are a common source of emergency department consultations for the plastic surgeon. A working understanding of evaluation, assessment, management, and prevention of further injury when dealing with these fractures is vital. This two-part series detailing the management of midface fractures serves as a guide for the appropriate workup and management of the wide variety of fracture patterns that are commonly encountered.
