Volume 1: Head and Neck
Volume 2: Upper Extremities, Torso, Pelvis, and Lower Extremities

Now in its thoroughly updated third edition, this classic work is the most comprehensive reference ever published on surgical flaps for reconstructing defects in all parts of the body. In 535 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.

The fourth edition of this classic work features 32 new chapters by experts who have made landmark contributions to the recent literature. Many chapters from the previous edition have been completely revised. Wherever appropriate, the editors have added editorial comments to guide the reader in selection of flaps.

The volumes are 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, and 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.
