This is an excellent book on lower extremity surgery for several reasons: knowledgeable and experienced editors and authors; extensive in the range of subjects covered and intensive as well; and quite practical to use with good layout and organization. -- BIZ INDIA

This volume represents the state-of-the art in reconstructive surgery of the lower extremity. The editors are assisted by more than 30 well-known experts from major centers in the United States, Asia, and Europe-each revealing new and refined techniques for lower extremity reconstruction.

This comprehensive two-volume set is a book you will refer to repeatedly as you plan the best strategy for dealing with difficult reconstructive problems of the lower extremity. Filled with clinical information, it will help you address both routine and complex cases, ensuring the best functional as well as aesthetic result.

Divided into four parts, Reconstructive Surgery of the Lower Extremity begins by summarizing the general principles, evaluation, and management of each type of injury in the lower extremity, as well as the clinical outcome and psychosocial impact of the lower extremity trauma. The second part primarily focuses on soft-tissue reconstruction. Twenty-one commonly used local and free flaps are presented step-by-step in each chapter. One of these flaps, the free anterolateral thigh skin perforator flap has become a workhorse in many centers and is well described by both American and Asian authors. Several other perforator flaps and free-style flaps are also included. The third part primarily focuses on bone and joint reconstruction and management of nonunion, while the fourth part focuses on specialized considerations in lower extremity reconstruction.

Beautifully Illustrated

The educational value of this two-volume work is enhanced by the superb medical illustrations that grace its pages. The high-quality artwork depicts the step-by-step surgical technique for each of the operations that are described.

Two DVDs with Video

Two DVDs with operative videos further demonstrate techniques you will learn.
