Author(s): Ahmad Reza Shahraki, Reza Abaee, Elham Shahraki


Craniomaxillofacial trauma reconstruction developed into a highly specialized field of treatment options following advanced diagnostic modalities in the past 15 years. Therefore, it plays a prominent role in patient care in several disciplines and necessitates close collaboration of specialists such as Craniomaxillofacial/facial surgeons, trauma, car accident neurosurgeons, ophthalmologists, trauma surgeons, and others. 1st case with a hole in her face, 2nd case with a crush mandibulary trauma and 3rd with maxiloorbital defects, whom all with car accident we describe, early management of penetrating maxillofacial trauma in an injured patient as a result of an industrial accident begins with standard and accepted protocols of ATLS. Timely intervention, which includes early wound exploration and debridement, anatomic fixation and repair of fractured bone fragments, early definitive management of soft tissue, and appropriate antimicrobial coverage including tetanus prophylaxis, is critical in achieving favorable outcomes with penetrating maxillofacial injury as a result of a car accident.
