Book Chapter
Chapter 19 of the book "Peterson's Principles of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery" is presented. The treatment of soft tissue injuries requires reconstructive procedures in order to manage both the soft tissue and bone injury in a minimum number of stages. It cites the use of regional flaps for the treatment of facial soft tissue defects caused by gunshot wounds. It stresses the importance of daily cleaning of wounds with dilute hydrogen peroxide and dressing with antibiotic ointment.
