Reconstructive Surgery: Anatomy, Technique, and Clinical Applications
By Michael R. Zenn, MD; Glyn Jones, MD
This master work by Drs. Michael Zenn and Glyn Jones represents the next generation of Mathes and Nahai's classic work on reconstructive surgery. It fulfills the original authors' plan to produce a definitive publication that captures the anatomy and technique in the earlier work while adding clinical applications, dissection techniques, expert commentary, and pearls and pitfalls. The result is a comprehensive work on reconstructive surgery that is current, clinically relevant, and filled with valuable insights that will change the way you practice reconstructive surgery.
Find Answers to Your Reconstructive Questions in This Comprehensive and Groundbreaking New Work!
In this new 2-volume set, Reconstructive Surgery: Anatomy, Technique, and Clinical Applications, Drs. Zenn and Jones pay full deference to Mathes and Nahai's original contribution to the field while taking it to the next level, adding their own considerable expertise to this topic. The authors are assisted by a select group of internationally recognized contributors who provide expert commentary and clinical cases on each flap. Together, these leading surgeons share their vast experience and clinical insights on techniques for reconstructing all anatomic regions. The result is a virtual gold mine of valuable information, tips and tricks, and step-by-step operative detail. This is the definitive text in reconstructive surgery!
The educational value of this 2-volume work is enormously enhanced by the superb medical illustrations that grace its pages. The book has beautiful artwork that elegantly depicts important flap anatomy as well as the step-by-step surgical technique that is included for each of the operations that are described.
4 DVDS With Video
4 DVDs demonstrating dissections for key flaps complement the book and provide additional educational value.
Volume I begins with a section on Fundamentals that includes 4 key chapters. The first is an introduction to the book's organization to guide the reader through the various sections. The second chapter, contributed by Steven Morris, discusses the vascular basis of flaps and includes a flap classification. The third chapter focuses on Basic Principles and Concepts, including the use of grafts, flaps, and tissue expansion, as well as basic information and guidelines on monitoring, wound management, and avoidance and management of complications. The final chapter in this section is entitled Clinical Applications: A Guide to Flap Selection. This unique chapter provides a key to clinical problem solving. It includes a series of tables or regional maps that are organized by clinical problem in each anatomic area, providing the optimal reconstructive solutions and fall-back plans for specific problems. This chapter will prove invaluable to any surgeon struggling to find the best approach to solving a difficult reconstructive problem.
Part II focuses on Regional Flaps and includes anatomy, basic technique and clinical applications for planning and executing reconstructive procedures in each anatomic area. It provides clinical information on the most currently used flaps. This part is divided into 14 chapters: Head and Neck, Anterior Thorax, Posterior Trunk, Upper Extremity, Hand, Abdomen, Abdominal Viscera, Thigh, Leg, and Foot. These chapters are then subdivided into a total of 68 separate sections that detail specific flap solutions for each anatomic area, ranging from the median forehead and pectoralis major flaps to the lateral thoracic (ICAP) , latissimus dorsi, radial rorearm, anterior lateral thigh (ALT), great toe (Hallux), rectus abdominis, superficial inferior epigastric artery (SIEA), gracilis, gastrocnemius, and dorsalis dedis flaps, to mention just a few.
Each chapter in this section follows a distinct and consistent format, beginning with key anatomic landmarks and including vascular anatomy, design and markings, guidelines for dissection, arc of rotation, flap transfer, inset and closure, and clinical applications. Each chapter concludes with a box of pearls and pitfalls and commentary provided by a noted expert in the area.
