Perforator Flaps: Anatomy, Technique, & Clinical Applications, Second Edition (Retail PDF)

by Phillip N. Blondeel

This is currently the only textbook on perforator flaps available. The first edition was a bestseller that sold out of its initial printing. The second edition of this book includes perforator anatomy, a description of currently used perforator flaps as well as clinical indications for the use of these flaps. The book has been updated to include all of the new information that has accrued since the last edition was published. It includes 10 new chapters as well as extensive updates on existing chapters.

The new edition has been in demand because of all of the new developments in the field. The editors are all leading reconstructive surgeons and pioneers in the field of perforator flap surgery. They have assembled a group of world renowned experts to contribute chapters. This new edition will have even more appeal than the first because local perforator flaps are more and more superseding the use of free flaps now for any area of the body. This includes the free-style propeller flaps, and the distal-based sural flap which has universally been used for the lower extremity especially when microsurgical skills are unavailable. Therefore, this new edition is a must-have for the practicing reconstructive surgeon to keep up to date on what presently is the “in” topic in plastic surgery.

Basic techniques for flap harvest are well outlined from the most basic to the most advanced. Supplemental DVDs show actual operating experiences to further enhance gaining appropriate knowledge on how to use these flaps.

Bladder Cancer: Diagnosis and Clinical Management

by Seth Lerner

Bladder Cancer: Diagnosis and Clinical Management is a 100% clinically-focused guide to bladder cancer, providing practical, modern and evidence-based guidance to the latest in diagnosis and management of the condition. It differs from other books in its complete clinical focus as opposed to a heavy analysis of pathogenesis or basic science.  As a result, practicing urologists and oncologists in the clinical setting will find it an essential resource to consult. 

In addition to the latest in diagnostic tools and imaging methods, core focus is on the management of each form of cancer at its various stages with up to date genomic data and targeted therapies.  Both drug therapies and the range of surgical options are covered, ensuring that this is the perfect tool for clinicians to consult when considering which type of management program is appropriate for each individual patient.  A key addition is the final section dedicated to optimizing health care delivery, featuring chapters on highly topical issues such as quality of life, patient advocacy and surgical education.

Full color throughout, and packed with excellent images, each chapter contains concise and didactic practical tips and tricks to enrich the reading experience, in addition to management algorithms and the very latest guidelines from the ASCO, AUA, ESMO and EAU concerning clinical management of bladder cancer.
