About this book


Tissue Surgery details the most current and multidisciplinary approaches to new technologies used in general plastic, hand, peripheral nerve, microsurgery, breast, esthetic, and trauma surgery and provides an overview of the most important and clinically relevant plastic surgery research. Many of the techniques and procedures described have not been previously published in either textbooks or journals.

New surgical images of new surgical approaches are all accompanied with anatomical descriptions. In a novel way, the book contains endoscopic images from minimally invasive procedures and provides the most current overview of the leading trends in plastic surgery research. Presenting newly developing clinically relevant techniques and technologies, this book stimulates the reader to look at future advances and applications of research and their relevance to daily clinical practice.

Bibliographic information


From the reviews:

"The authors and editor wish to present a state-of-the-art book on the understanding, handling, and approach to various tissues types. To this end they have achieved their goals. This is a progressive looking book written by an international group of physicians for sophisticated plastic, hand, and orthopedic surgeons who wish to hone their skills and accelerate their knowledge base concerning the newest techniques and treatments in selected fields of tissue surgery. This is a well crafted, niche book for those interested in specific tissue surgery topics, especially for those surgeons practicing microvascular and transplant surgery." (Jeffrey S Rosenthal, Doody Enterprises, Inc. - COPYRIGHT 2006)

"Tissue surgery is a nice review of different surgical procedures performed on a variety of tissues by experts … . the presentation is clear and you may find very easy answers to your questions. … This book is a reference tool for those who want to understand the new methods and techniques in tissue surgery. … I recommend it for every surgeon dealing with the future of surgery." (J. P. Deleuze, Acta Chirurgica Belgica, Issue 1, 2007)

"We are witnessing major changes in the field of tissue surgery … . The editor is to be congratulated … . Technically, this hardback book is well presented on glossy paper and illustrated with colour photographs and diagrams … . There are up-to-date references … . there is no doubt that this text will be of interest to all those … who are anxious to keep up-to-date in the field of reconstructive surgery." (John Lowry, Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons, Vol. 89, 2007)
