About this Book

This comprehensive textbook, edited by world-renowned experts in the field, provides answers to challenges in the diagnosis and treatment of craniofacial anomalies.The book integrates basic science and clinical perspectives, creating a more unified and practical "patient centered" approach. Organized in a logical, easy-to-follow structure, this reference reviews and presents cutting-edge findings, covering the state of the art in craniosynostosis and facial clefting from molecular, genetic, cellular, tissue, organismic, and populations levels. Using standardized nomenclature and consistent terminology, Understanding Craniofacial Anomalies incorporates the recent explosion of growth in studying genetic and epigenetic etiologies of syndromes, thereby providing a unique and holistic review of this important topic.
