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.
