edited by Berish Strauch

Encyclopedia of Flaps is the most comprehensive reference ever published on surgical flaps for reconstructing defects in the torso, pelvis, and lower extremities.

In clearly organized chapters, internationally recognized surgeons describe and illustrate every clinically proven flap option available for repairing every routine and unusual defect.

Complementing the text are hundreds of clinical photographs and diagrams of anatomy, blood supply, flap design, and operative procedures. Wherever appropriate, the editors have added editorial comments to guide the reader in selection of flaps.

Encyclopedia of Flaps is extensively indexed and organized by anatomic region, and chapters follow a uniform format that clearly presents all the information needed on each flap:

  • indications
  • anatomy
  • blood supply
  • surgical techniques
  • complications
  • safeguards to keep in mind
  • advantages and disadvantages of the flap

From this remarkably complete collection of clinical information, surgeons can select with confidence the best flap for safe, predictable, and aesthetically acceptable results.
