Practical Periodontal Plastic Surgery, Second Edition builds on the success of the first edition to provide the qualified and trainee periodontist with an essential guide to the clinical requirements and step-by-step procedures of periodontal plastic surgery.
This book introduces readers to all clinical aspects of congenital anomalies of the hand and upper limb, and offers extensive information on their surgical management, including plastic surgery, pediatric surgery, hand surgery, orthopedic surgery, and general surgery.
Drawing on extensive research of related cases, articles and relevant books, and over a thousand pictures of hand deformities, the book addresses the morphology, structure, and defects of hand deformities, while also providing methods for hand examination and hand function assessment.
The authors are professors and experts in plastic surgery, hand surgery, and orthopedics from China and the USA, who spent over two years composing and compiling this book.
The skin is the largest human organ system. Loss of skin integrity due to injury or illness results in a substantial physiologic imbalance and ultimately in severe disability or death. The most common cause of significant skin loss is thermal injury, followed by trauma and chronic ulcerations.
Over the past decades extraordinary advances have been made in the understanding of cellular and molecular processes of wound healing and the pathobiology of chronic wounds. This knowledge has led to wound care innovations that facilitate more rapid closure of wounds with better functional and aesthetic outcome. A sensible and resource-saving utilization of these innovative technologies requires a broad knowledge of these processes and innovations.
This book intends to give an overview about today’s wound care developments in tissue engineering and skin replacement. It presents a variety of indications and diversities of clinical applications to help the surgeon select a specific procedure for each clinical situation.
One major by-product of the aging baby-boom generation is a surging interest in cosmetic surgery. Although procedures like facelifts and abdominoplasties (the ‘tummy-tuck’) are considered minimally invasive, the anesthetic protocols and regimens here are often overly complex and unnecessarily toxic. This reference will focus on all of the procedures that the anesthesiologist needs to be proficient in to adequately care for this group of patients. Perioperative care and pain management will be covered for the full spectrum of operations, and there will be special emphasis on level-of-consciousness monitoring of these patients.
This text is designed to present a comprehensive overview of the evolution, oncologic safety, surgical approaches and outcomes of NSM. The book is targeted at general surgeons, dedicated breast surgeons, and plastic surgeons. There is focus for surgeons just beginning their use of NSM, as well as a review of patient selection criteria, operative approaches, reconstruction options, and management of complications. Chapters are written by experts in the performance and reconstruction of NSM. Chapters are supplemented with appropriate illustrations and photos of NSM techniques and reconstructions.
“This is a primer for those uninitiated in the field of plastic reconstruction of defects of the body resulting from surgery for cancer. It introduces the various reconstructive techniques to physicians whose care of patients overlaps with that of the plastic surgeon. … The book is aimed at oncologists, both medical and surgical, whether students, residents, or practicing physicians. The authors, for the most part, are plastic surgeons who have had experience reconstructing specific parts of the body after cancer removal.” (Jeffrey S. Rosenthal, Doody’s Review Service, June, 2008)
Principles of Cancer Reconstructive Surgery is a reference text for medical and surgical oncologists, radiation oncologists, family practice physicians and dermatologists, providing an overview for reconstructive procedures. Interested residents, medical students and health care professionals may find this to be a resource for information on reconstructive plastic surgery. It is designed to educate those involved with the management of cancer patients and serve as a reference source. The disease specific format facilitates quick reference for those who wish to focus on a single body area or disease. The most commonly occurring cancers, breast, melanoma, head and neck, are covered in an overview chapter and in greater detail in individual chapters. This volume includes nearly 300 color illustrations and the 7×10 format give the reader excellent detail and clarity.
This book introduces oncoplastic surgery as an interdisciplinary branch of oncological surgery that integrates theories and technologies in oncological surgery, plastic surgery and microsurgery with characteristics of planned radical resection of tumors and one-stage repair and reconstruction of surgical defects on the basis of multidisciplinary treatment (MDT) of tumors. Consisting of 23 chapters, the book covers a range of surgical topics related to oncoplastic surgery in clinical disciplines, with a focus on oncology surgery, plastic surgery, microsurgery, vascular surgery, otolaryngology-head and neck surgery, neurosurgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, breast surgery, urinary surgery, gynecologic oncology, bone surgery, thoracic surgery and abdominal surgery. In most of the surgical cases oncology surgery is combined with plastic surgery.
The book summarizes the basic theories and clinical experiences in oncoplastic surgery, focusing on repair and aesthetic reconstruction after tumor removal, which increases patients’ survival rate and significantly improves their quality of life. It is a valuable reference resource for tumor surgeons, plastic surgeons, head and neck surgeons, breast surgeons as well as surgeons in other relevant fields.Editor Xiao Zhou is a Professor at the Department of Oncology Plastic Surgery, Hunan Cancer Hospital, The Affiliated Cancer Hospital of Xiangya School of Medicine, Central South University, Changsha , China.
