Flaps and Grafts in Dermatologic Surgery , 2nd Edition
- Includes numerous reconstructive options for each specific region of the face, and explains why one may be better than another in a given situation.
- Features several chapters on the use of flaps and grafts in facial reconstruction and describes the finer points of their design, execution, and application.
- Discusses complications and pitfalls and how to avoid them.
- Devotes an entire chapter to facial anatomy with an emphasis on practical landmarks and danger areas.
- Uses a consistent format throughout for ease of reference.
Achieve optimal results in reconstructive surgery involving flaps and grafts with this up-to-date reference written by leading dermatologic surgeons. Using a systematic approach, Flaps and Grafts in Dermatologic Surgery, Second Edition, by Drs. Thomas E. Rohrer, Jonathan L. Cook, and Andrew J. Kaufman, offers practical, easily accessible guidance in this challenging area, including anatomical considerations, the delicate nature of tissue movement, principles of aesthetic surgical closures, relevant tissue biomechanics, and much more. Covering everything from the basic linear and arciform closures, to the more challenging V-Y advancement flaps, and complex staged interpolation flaps, this text clearly presents not just the "how to do it" but more importantly the thought processes behind the selection and execution of each reconstructive procedure.
- Describes which flap or graft to choose in specific clinical situations, how to execute each repair (with a multitude of images and diagrams), and how to minimize the risks as well as manage potential complications.
- Provides algorithms to assist with flap and graft choices, as well as hundreds of superb full-color illustrations throughout.

|Published Reviews||"What makes the editors' approach so very unique is the inclusion of extensive high resolution narrated video to illustrate in detail the techniques described in the body of the text. This is a three-dimensional process, nearly duplicating the experience of standing shoulder to shoulder with a personal master instructor. The student is able to read the principles and applications and then see in real time the execution of the techniques. There is no better way to learn." --Leonard M Dzubow MD excerpt from foreword|
