Flaps in Hand and Upper Limb Reconstruction 1st edition pdf
Despite the large number of excellent publications and books on the topic of flap surgery of the hand and upper limb, no complete survey has yet been available that provides an exhaustive description of the numerous possible flap procedures together with an evaluation and ranking of their practical feasibility. But Flaps in Hand and Upper Limb Reconstruction 1st edition provides complete knowledge about the flaps and techniques of reconstruction
Faced with a plethora of possibilities, we need to concern ourselves with the functional, aesthetic and social aspects of the hand in order to choose the flap procedure that is the best in a given case. It is not technical feasibility that we seek but the therapy which is appropriate for the individual patient.
The confidence with which individually appropriate treatment is achieved is what distinguishes the beginner from the experienced surgeon. The aim was to provide a concise and structured overview of the procedure and yet offer the key references. To achieve maximum authenticity in the illustrations, the drawings are based not only on surgical
documentation but also on anatomical latex injection preparations of the separate steps of flap surgery.
Flaps in Hand and Upper Limb Reconstruction 1st edition also gives us the opportunity to know the the exact anatomy of the hand .Performing flap surgery demands profound anatomical knowledge and a thorough understanding of the basics of tissue perfusion and innervation.
Surgical precision that derives from these foundations is an indispensable requirement for the successful healing of the flap. Postoperative treatment, especially physiotherapy, plays an equally important role. So the surgeon must be familiar with the basics of physiotherapy in order to adequately prepare for and supervise postoperative recovery.
The differential therapy options that are reflected in the various tables give a survey of the approaches and procedures performed at various large centres across the world. They are based on experimental investigations
as well as on many years of clinical experience. Flaps in Hand and Upper Limb Reconstruction 1st edition book is directed to all disciplines involved in the fields of hand and upper limb surgery.
