Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: James P Newman, MD (Stanford University Medical Center)
Description: This is the second edition of a book first published in 1990 by a respected group of authors in dermatologic laser surgery.
Purpose: The purpose, as stated by the authors, is to provide a "how-to" approach to laser surgery for skin disorders and aesthetic conditions. The goal of the authors is to summarize current laser systems and bring us up-to-date with the changes and new laser systems over the past decade. They have accomplished this by combining concise summaries and charts of laser specifications with practical information using clinical pearls and illustrations gained from the combined experience of the authors and international contributors.
Audience: Because of the high quality of photographs and practical points covered in each chapter, medical students interested in laser surgery and residents in dermatology, otolaryngology, ophthalmology, and plastic surgery will find this a useful clinical guide. Fellows and practitioners of cutaneous and aesthetic laser surgery will appreciate having a well referenced and illustrated clinical guide in a field that changes so rapidly.
Features: Each of the 12 chapters contains a "to-the- point" guide of laser applications with complementary color pictorials. The chapters are organized with a brief background, outlines of laser applications and clinical points and appendixes of clinical forms.
Assessment: The vascular and pigmented lesion chapters covers the most common pathology with high quality photographs of pre- and postoperative examples. The depth of discussion varies among the topics. For example, coverage of port wine stains is thorough while treatments for leg veins is rather brief. The aesthetic chapters include skin resurfacing covering both pulsed CO2 systems and newer Erbium lasers, laser blepharoplasty, and laser hair removal. The appendixes of each chapter contains useful guides for informed consent, supplemental operative records, and patient care instructions.
