STANLEY'S ARTICLE presents a very stimulating discussion by a North American practitioner with extensive experience in facial injury management whose judgment and advice can always be respected. The interesting concepts of the article are the advancement of the concept of postoperative analysis to fractures with limited exposures and the transfer of radiographic analysis of the accuracy of facial fracture fixation to the operating room. Stanley describes the initial frustration with positioning the patients and with the time necessary for both the positioning and the analysis, which improved from 45 minutes each to 15 to 20 minutes toward the end of the study. He also recommends additional modifications that may further improve the efficiency of the procedure.
