About this book
Bone grafting is an essential technique in bone and joint surgery. This book covers the different types of graft, especially the viable ones created with microvascular anastomoses. Both conventional techniques and newer methods are included, with emphasis on the latter. New approaches are highlighted in the application of vascularised bone grafts in post-resection bony reconstruction and of vascularised composite bone grafts in hand reconstruction. With increased awareness of the advantages of bone grafts, surgeons will more readily recognize indications and identify areas of application.
