  • Outlines and defines the use of plastic surgery techniques - V-Y and Y-V; Z-plasty and W-plasty - for conditions of the foot and ankle and lower leg. These techniques can be used in the foot and ankle region for scar contracture which is a frequent complication of lower extremity surgery.

  • Includes multiple examples of appropriate techniques for correction of toenail and digital deformities.

  • Presents a large number of lower extremity soft tissue masses with the appropriate techniques for surgical management.

  • Outlines the specific indications and techniques for performing the advancement and rotation flaps for the lower extremity; these can be used to provide coverage for soft tissue defects.
  • Unlike any other podiatric text available, this new textbook focuses on the treatment of skin and soft tissue problems of the foot and ankle area using techniques borrowed from facial plastic surgery, hand reconstructive surgery and general soft tissue plastic surgery fields and modified to be used on the foot and ankle areas. This textbook provides a detailed outline and description of evaluating, examining and documenting lower extremity skin and soft tissue conditions. It addresses these problems with a variety of techniques including suturing, incisional and excisional techniques, along with the appropriate reconstructive and plastic surgical procedures for each condition.

    Published Reviews The text provides a structured overview on the general principles of plastic surgery.

    I congratulate the Editors on this excellent text. I enjoyed reading the early chapters on basic principles as well as those relating to specific procedures. The contributing authors have stuck to theme well in terms of the level at which the text is pitched and the quality of illustrations are excellent throughout.

    ...a thorough and comprehensive overview on the principles underlying cutaneous plastic surgery...

    I would recommend this text as a "must have" for all practitioners involved in lower limb soft tissue surgery.
