The research findings indicate that delayed treatment, characterized by an opportunity for maxillofacial revascularization, can enhance surgical outcomes while simultaneously decreasing postoperative morbidity and complications.

This study compares the number of postoperative complications of Syrian patients admitted to the Galilee Medical Center (GMC) over a 5-year period for treatment after initial high-velocity maxillofacial injuries sustained during the Syrian civil war.

Researchers evaluated complication rates of patients arriving “early,” within 24 h, to the GMC versus those who arrived “late,” or 14–28 days following high-velocity maxillofacial injuries. Both groups of patients received definitive surgical treatment within 48 h of admission to our hospital with a total of 60 patients included in this study.

The study findings were;

--Postoperative complications in the early group were found to be significantly higher compared to the delayed arrival group.

--They found that unintentionally delayed treatment may have contributed to a critical revascularization period resulting in improved healing and decreased postoperative morbidity and complications.

Conclusively, this study demonstrates the potential benefit of delayed surgical treatment for high-velocity maxillofacial injuries.
