Main description:

This is a new text in plastic surgery dealing exclusively with reconstructive surgery. Rather than taking a flap-based approach, it follows a regional, problem-based structure. The emphasis will be on decision-making algorithms, exploring controversies, and presenting cutting edge techniques. The authors are a "who's who" from the most prominent and accomplished reconstructive surgeons in the world. This is a practical text rather than an encyclopedic text, intended to provide the maximum value to the reader learning or reviewing reconstructive plastic surgery. It includes numerous video clips and addresses plastic surgery problems in a very clinically relevant way.
