Paperback (Print)

Overview


Over the past two decades, wound management and reconstruction has become an increasingly exciting and demanding area of veterinary surgery. Our knowledge of the biology of wound healing and of the factors that contribute to abnormal wound healing has expanded greatly. The application of new dressing products, and novel surgical and microsurgical techniques allow the veterinary surgeon to facilitate more rapid and functional recoveries, with fewer wound-related complications.
This book guides the reader through the basic principles of wound healing and surgical technique, providing an excellent basis for decision making in practice. Chapters on open wound management and drainage are followed by sections on tension relieving techniques, skin grafting, flaps and microvascular reconstruction. Complications of wound healing are dealt with in detail.
This is a truly transatlantic venture - the Canadian and UK editors have commissioned chapters from acknowledged experts in their fields from both the UK and North America. The practical problem-solving approach of this book, combined with its thorough treatment of individual techniques, makes it an invaluable aid to the practitioner faced with wounds resulting from trauma or from surgical intervention.

Editorial Reviews

Joseph Harari
This book is a highly illustrated manual for the surgical and medical treatments of wounds in cats and dogs. The purpose, according to the editors, is to help clinicians understand the basis for and protocols of wound treatments in cats and dogs. In addition, they hope to provide basic and advanced information to aid in the decision-making process. These objectives are indeed worthy in enabling veterinarians to treat patients correctly. Furthermore, these goals have been met based on the quantity and quality of relevant material presented in this book. This text is targeted for practitioners, surgery residents, and specialists treating major and minor wounds in cats and dogs. The editors and contributors are credible academic and private practice specialists from the U.S., Canada, and England. Information covered in this book includes basic pathophysiology and classification of wounds, along with numerous treatment modalities such as grafts, drains, flaps, and microsurgery. Complications and specific diseases of wound healing are also described. Extensive clinical illustrations and case examples are provided, as well as useful black-and-white line drawings. Step-by-step instructions allow readers to follow case management from beginning to successful clinical outcome. Additionally, novel wound healing treatments are presented although not all studies are completely referenced. This is an excellent user-friendly manual for clinicians who treat wounds in small animals. It is comparable to two other classics in the field, Swaim's Small Animal Wound Management, 2nd Edition (Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1997) and Pavletics' Atlas of Small Animal ReconstructiveSurgery, 2nd Edition (WB Saunders, 1999).
