Overview

With a large number of clinical photographs, Making Decisions and Avoiding Complications in Skin Flaps is an atlas intended for the surgeon who already has a grasp of the fundamentals and mechanics of flap repair, but may need additional ideas on selecting an appropriate flap for a given defect.

Divided into three sections, the book begins with a section on repairs organized by location on the body. Rather than an exhaustive list of all flaps ever used, the book focuses on the ones the authors have successfully used on a routine basis.

The second section contains repairs organized by flap type and the third section contains clinical photographs of suboptimal results with a discussion of what may have gone wrong and what could have been done differently to obtain a better result.

The intent of this text is not to showcase results but to present flap options for different defects and anatomic sites. Each example includes a photograph showing the defect and a second showing the repair. When available and/or of educational value, illustrations of the flap or long-term follow-up photos are supplied. Throughout the text, surgical pearls are presented in bold text which can help optimize a particular flap’s success rate and/or aesthetic outcome. These pearls have also been compiled into an addendum at the end of the book.
