Facial trauma remains an ongoing epidemic. In this webinar, expert speakers will discuss the epidemiology of craniomaxillofacial trauma and how the COVID-19 ‘lockdown’ has shaped and altered it. We will review how professionals in the field will continue to deliver trauma services in the future and outline the risk assessment of the craniomaxillofacial trauma case mix according to potential outcomes in the COVID era.

During this webinar you will learn:

  • Novel methods to minimize dental damage during prolonged periods of IMF
  • Osteosynthesis strategy according to disease severity
  • Use of patient testing and resource organisation
  • Stratification of COVID risk versus timing of surgery
