Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Jeffrey S. Rosenthal, MD (Bridgeport Hospital)
Description: In this book, the scientific explanations for healing or failure of the body to heal is coupled with a compelling exploration of how this model can be used in real life. With an understanding of these mechanisms, the healer can optimize the body's restorative mechanisms, or at the very least improve upon the end results.
Purpose: The purpose of this book is to discuss the theoretical rationales related to the healing of the face and neck and then enable the practical application of these scientific principles. By unraveling the underlying basic science of the reparative mechanisms, the authors unveil the processes that can be employed to aid healing.
Audience: With authors from both academia and in the forefront of patient care, the book covers the scientific and clinical ramifications of healing. This multidisciplinary approach has broad interest for surgeons, clinicians, and researchers who deal with healing issues of the face and neck region.
Features: The first section of the book covers the salient healing features of the face and neck, including the skin, facial bones, nerves, muscles, throat, oral and sinonasal mucosa. The second grouping delves into the clinical problems of healing tissues, including facial burns, excessive scarring, laser resurfacing issues, irradiated skin, facial bone problems, soft tissue wounds, biology of the cranial bones, vocal cord scarring, facial nerve damage, and healing considerations of the neck. The final section is clinically organized to cover the therapeutic options for poor healing of wounds, nutrition, infection control, and the various modalities that optimize wound closure. The chapters are filled with didactic diagrams, photographs, and charts that help elucidate the main points of each topic.
Assessment: Because of the time lag inherent in a publishing cycle, there is often a lack of up to the minute scientific information in a book. Nevertheless, this book warrants a careful perusal. The authors have bundled the science of wound healing with that of therapeutic applications that is important in clinical settings to procure optimal wound healing of the face and neck regions. This unique juxtaposition of research and clinical applications will serve the community of healers.
