Description

This volume in the renowned series covers the use of flaps in head and neck reconstruction.

Dr. Genden is a world-renowned surgeon, having done the first transplant of a human jaw. In the last 15 years there have been major advances in the treatment of head and neck cancers and in recent years, free flaps have become the workhorse in head and neck reconstruction.

Most centers are reporting success results higher than 96%, with the possibility of free flap salvage for failures. A competent reconstructive surgeon must be familiar with the armamentarium available for reconstruction, understanding the advantages and limitation of each technique and knowing when and where to adopt each one.

This book covers how to use all these flaps in reconstruction. It's illustrated with step-by-step intraoperative photos and line drawings. Skin, scalp, facial paralysis, palatomaxillary complex, skull base and special considerations will also be covered.
