Reseña o resumen
This richly illustrated atlas provides a clear and comprehensive step-by-step description of surgical techniques for raising and setting free flaps from different donor sites, to reconstruct damage to the head and neck caused by cancer and trauma. Adopting a highly practical approach, the book describes the indications and technical aspects of each procedure with sets of in-vivo pictures clearly showing the surgical passages. In addition, it discusses microvascular techniques and explores different soft-tissue, perforator and bone flaps, including novel free tissue flaps, presented for the first time in the head and neck field. This book offers invaluable insights into free-flap harvesting and transferring techniques for both residents and experienced specialists in the field of otolaryngology, head and neck, maxillo-facial and plastic surgery.
