Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jeffrey S. Rosenthal, MD (Bridgeport Hospital)
Description: By asking questions (6,000) and immediately providing the answers, this board review covers the breadth of plastic and reconstructive surgery, helping readers gain insight into their weaknesses and strengths while they learn about the varied topics.
Purpose: The authors wish to prepare fledgling plastic and reconstructive surgeons for various examinations during their residency as well as for final certification.
Audience: It targets the specific audience of plastic surgery residents and those about to fulfill their requirements prior to being board certified.
Features: The seven sections encompass 90 chapters, with 18 of them new to this second edition. The book begins with strategies for studying for the examination and historical references regarding the foundation of plastic surgery. From this point onward, the book covers aesthetic surgery, breast, hand and extremities, head and neck, integument, pediatrics, reconstruction, and basic statistical methods. The topics are universal and used by the various authenticating bodies. The question-and-answer, rapid-fire method is similar to that encountered during the actual test. Each question is preceded by an open bullet that readers can use to check off areas of interest or concern. The questions and answers have been vetted by the authoritative contributors. Readers will glean a plethora of information using this didactic method, but the book is not meant to be a reference. However, the topics will offer novices insight into areas that should be investigated in a more exhaustive manner. The book includes a smattering of diagrams and photographs as well as topical references in each chapter.
Assessment: This is an excellent tool readers can use to both learn and judge their fund of knowledge in preparation for the board examinations.
