This focused, concise book offers an in-depth analysis of lower extremity reconstruction alongside region-specific photos and illustrations. As an anatomical atlas, it seeks to aid the visual learner in showcasing the key steps in setting up and raising the flap for a given defect.
Organized into two sections, opening chapters are arranged by general location, focusing specifically on the lower limb. Each general location of a wound is accompanied by an examination of relevant anatomy, including blood supply, nerve supply, arc of rotation of the tissue, and local flap options. Following a description of the anatomy, subsequent paragraphs explain the application of relevant local flap options. Section two incorporates flap demonstration and application into each chapter, offering a more detailed description, true and specific to each anatomical site of the technique.
Supplemented by high-quality images and figures, Handbook of Lower Extremity Reconstruction: Clinical Case-Based Review and Flap Atlas is an invaluable reference for practicing plastic and orthopedic surgeons and residents in training.
