This successor to the very successful An Atlas of Flaps in Limb Reconstruction expands its subject-matter to also include all flaps of the trunk. The book includes a comprehensive classification of skin flaps and the vascular supply of the muscles. It addresses surgical procedures, techniques of elevation, and main indications for flaps. Different flaps are described and grouped according to their donor sites. The text also discusses the role of secondary arteries, skin arteries, and the dominant pedicles to the muscles, all of which are important in flap surgery. With clearly labeled illustrations and step-by-step techniques, this new edition covers neurocutaneous flaps, venous flaps, and adipofascial pedicled flaps.
