Step-by-step descriptions of surgical techniques
This book highlights the successful collaboration of plastic surgeons, neurosurgeons, and, in some cases, ENT, maxillofacial, oral, and oculoplastic surgeons, in treating some of the most complex craniofacial, skull-based, intracranial, and spinal problems. Beginning with the basic principles of wound healing and flap rotation, you will find full discussions of craniofacial anomalies, skull base tumors, scalp closures, skull defects, management techniques for spinal dysraphism, and much more.
With a balanced combination of concepts followed by illustrated, step-by-step surgical techniques, here is the book that all neurosurgeons and plastic and reconstructive surgeons will use as both an everyday reference and a key addition to their surgical armamentariums. Residents preparing for boards will also find its succinct, straightforward coverage ideal for reviewing fundamental principles and surgical applications.
