Summary This book offers an essential guide to treating trismus due to oral submucous fibrosis (OSMF)? a specific condition involving the mouth that is common in geographical areas where chewing of betel nut and tobacco is prevalent, particularly in Central India. Based on the editors? more than two decades of experience employing techniques such as platysma flap and mandibular mucoperiosteal flaps to treat trismus of OSMF, the book will help surgeons who encounter these disorders to create their own management protocols.
