Product information Comprehensive Cleft Care, Second Edition: Two Volume Set

Comprehensive Cleft Care provides unparalleled coverage of cleft care-from prenatal diagnosis to definitive orthognathic surgery. The inclusion of topics such as advocacy, mission work, and outcomes assessment make this an all-in-one clinical companion.

The work is conveniently divided into two volumes. The first addresses nonsurgical topics, including clinical outcomes research, evidence-based practice, fundamentals of team care, and the global aspects of cleft care. The first volume also discusses fundamental subjects in cleft science, such as embryology, anatomy, classification, epidemiology, and genetics.

Clinical topics addressed in the first volume include nursing and primary care, feeding and swallowing, and pediatric assessment and management of children with clefting. Neuropsychological and educational topics, including psychosocial and behavioral aspects and the role of the social worker in cleft care are also discussed. The contributors examine cleft palate speech and velopharyngeal dysfunction and review otologic, audiologic, and airway assessment and management, including issues related to sleep-disordered breathing.

The second volume addresses surgical solutions, as well as the dental and orthodontic aspects of cleft management. It examines primary cleft lip and palate repair, including methods for the repair of microform, unilateral, and bilateral clefts. Also discussed is secondary surgical management of cleft lip and palate, dental, orthodontic, and prosthetic management, and the management of skeletal deformities.

This complete two-volume reference uses a distinct holistic approach and perspectives from skilled specialists in a variety of disciplines, presenting an unmatched overview of cleft repair and management. It includes two DVDs covering topics ranging from nursing care, anatomy, and embryology to detailed operative videos of all key surgical procedures. It is beautifully illustrated in full color

What is an e-book?

An e-book is an electronic edition of a printed book that is available as a file. The content does not differ from the printed edition of the book. Thieme offers electronic books in PDF and EPUB formats. For both formats, you need software to display the documents on your reading device. This software is not part of the e-book download.

What is the PDF format?
Adobe PDF format (Portable Document Format) is a standard format in MAC/PC area. Free programs for reading a PDF are available for all common operating systems (e.g. Windows, Mac OS, Linux) and for almost all e-book readers such as e-book readers, tablets or smartphones.

What is the EPUB format?
EPUB (electronic publication) is a standard format for e-books that enables dynamic adaptation of the text to the size of the display device. It is particularly well suited for displaying e-books on tablet PCs, smartphones, and e-book readers.
EPUBs can also be easily displayed on MACs/PCs via the free ADE (Adobe Digital Editions) software, for example.

Is an Internet connection required to read an e-book?
An Internet connection is required only to download the e-book to the reader. Once the download is complete, you can view and read the e-book without an Internet connection.

Are e-books copy-protected?
E-books from Thieme Publishing Group are provided with DRM (Digital Rights Management) protection from Vitalsource

On how many devices can I read the e-book?
You can read an e-book on up to six different (mobile) devices. These devices must be authorized with the same Adobe ID.

Can I exchange/return an e-book?
E-books are products that are not suitable for return due to their nature. Just like downloads of other electronic files (movies, music or software), e-books are excluded from the right of withdrawal. A return or exchange is therefore not possible.
