Overview

Full-color, step-by-step guidance on reconstructive procedures

Authored by top experts in the field, Current Reconstructive Surgery is a comprehensive resource that prepares you for the most challenging cases, while giving you a solid grasp of the fundamentals. The content of the book—logically organized by anatomic region—is supported by more than 1,300 state-of-the-art illustrations and photographs, nearly all of which are in full color.

Current Reconstructive Surgery begins with a valuable review of the principles of wound healing and wound repair. Its subsequent chapters meticulously examine pertinent reconstructive topics and present the latest surgical protocols for all injuries and disabilities, from burn reconstruction and skull base surgery to the management of hand infections. Current Reconstructive Surgery delivers insights derived from the authors’ vast experience as practitioners, combined with data from new and landmark studies. This one-of-a-kind guide has everything you need to confidently perform both common and uncommon reconstructive procedures—so you can improve function and approximate a normal appearance for your patients.

Each chapter covers:

  • Patient evaluation and selection: Proven diagnostic strategies that elucidate the nature of the disorder, including onset and duration
  • Patient preparation: Details the preoperative plan, including anesthesia considerations, grafts or flaps used in reconstruction, and patient positioning
  • Techniques: Evidence-based surgical approaches for each type of surgery
  • Incisive coverage of postoperative management: Important steps that physicians and patients must take to promote healing and restore function
  • Overview of complications: Such as infection, fistulae, the risk of secondary procedures due to unsatisfactory results, and post-surgical psychological problems related to the patient’s self-image

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jeffrey S. Rosenthal, MD (Bridgeport Hospital)
Description: The editors have gathered a memorable group of authors to tackle the complex field of reconstructive surgery.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a comprehensive overview of this far-reaching field.
Audience: This is a sophisticated book that covers the various permutations of reconstructive surgery. The audience can include anyone in this field. However, novices should be aware that they may be overwhelmed without a strong understanding of the topics.
Features: With such an abundance of contributors, providing the information in a standardized format could be difficult; however, the editors have done due diligence in fostering a uniformity of writing style. The 67 chapters are replete with photos, charts, tables, and drawings. Wound healing and the fundamentals of wound repair, followed by the fashioning of perforator flaps, wound therapy, and the evolution of transplantation logically kick off the book. Subsequent chapters are grouped by anatomic zones and cover the head, skin, vascular system, breast, hands, brachial plexus, chest, abdominal wall, lower extremity, lymphatic system, and post-bariatric surgery. The book is visually appealing and a significant fount of information for reconstructive surgeons.
Assessment: There is something for everyone in the field of reconstructive surgery in this book, which also limits the depth of information that it can provide on any one topic. However, the extensive range of topics it covers imparts a knowledge base that is well worth the cost of the book.
