New York/Stuttgart – With this highly anticipated second edition of Principles of Facial Reconstruction leading specialists in this rapidly growing field have dramatically improved on the original version. By streamlining and condensing the format and text, the editors have made the material clear, concise and more consistent. The new edition, published by Thieme, operates as an illustrated guide to facial soft-tissue reconstruction.
"Our goal in this second edition of Principles of Facial Reconstruction is to present a guide to reliable, effective techniques of facial reconstruction," explains author David A. Sherris, MD.
The authors selected only the most effective and reliable procedures based on their professional experiences. By doing this, they have created an easy-to-read book that expertly guides clinicians both through treatment options and to the selection of the most appropriate flap or graft for the right situation.
More than 300 high-quality illustrations, full-color clinical photographs, diagrams, algorithms and patient cases accurately depict reconstruction methods in a step-by-step fashion. Material added to this fully updated edition includes new flap choices, a chapter on graft harvest techniques, and more patient case examples.
Wayne F. Larrabee, Jr., MD, one of the authors of Principles of Facial Reconstruction states, "This book is excellent for either the resident in a field involving facial soft tissue reconstruction or the more advanced practitioner in facial soft tissue reconstruction."
