XVIII Congress of the European Association for  Cranio-Maxillo facial Surgery – EACMF

September 12-16 2006 - Barcelona, Spain






Professionals involved in the health sciences are receiving an increasingly high volume of information regarding innovations and new technologies in all fields of medicine. We are all exposed to symposiums, congresses, workshops, hands-on courses... so much information, that very often is difficult to collect, assimilate and store properly. In this scenario Evidence-Based Medicine (EBM) is a must for those practising in the XXI Century.

Scientific knowledge obtained thorough EBM must be carefully combined with the experience of the health provider and the expectations/desires of the informed patient. We need to keep-up our knowledge not only to achieve excellency in the medical attention we are delivering to our patients, but also to improve the training received by our residents. Continued education, adaptation to new technologies and skills are important for our professional development and for our patients care

The "traditional" abstracts books delivered in meetings give us only a light brushstroke of the works of the authors, and many of them do not arrive to the general public as papers published in the speciality journals. Many times the lack of time, the language difficulties, or the lack of institutional support are serious handicaps for authors all over the world willing to share their knowledge with their colleagues.

This volume covers news aspects of maxillofacial surgery in its full scope: esthetic surgery, orthognatics and distraction, oncology and reconstruction, dentoalveolar surgery or implantology. We thought that it was a great opportunity for all delegates attending the XVIIIth Congress of the EACMFS, to recover as a book/CD the extended versions of the papers presented during the meeting. In this book you will find not only articles from the keynote speakers that participate in the Main Round Tables, Controversies and State of the Art lectures, but also the contribution of surgeons willing to present their experiences, innovations and opinions in all fields of cranio-maxillo-facial surgery. Authors of the articles include accomplished experts that provide excellent information on contemporary and avant-garde techniques.

We want to gratefully acknowledge all the persons involved in the organization of the contents of the Proceedings (from Medimond to the Organizing Committee) but specially to the contributing authors for their time, efforts and hard work.
