Item description for Advances in Upper and Lower Extremity Microvascular Reconstructions by F. Schuind, S. De Fontaine, J. Van Geertruyden, P. N. Soucacos, John O'Brien, Sara Stridsberg & Ana Planella...
Advances made in microsurgical techniques have dramatically improved the treatment of complex limb injuries, such as a closed fracture covered by healthy tissue and a complex open fracture of the tibia. Microvascular transfers from the foot have revolutionized the treatment of digital amputations, and vascularized bone transfers are used in various indications. The microvascular techniques are still evolving. Many imaginative flaps are being proposed to meet precisely the functional requirements of the various defects. Alternative anastomotic techniques are being investigated and the no-flow phenomenon has been extensively studied. Allotransplantation may be feasible in the future. This text is a result of the exchange of ideas among clinicians of various specialities noted for their innovations and basic researchers involved with the problems of microvascular reconstruction of upper and lower extremities. While most of the chapters are invited contributions, some are based on presentations made during an international symposium held in Brussels, Belgium, in 1997.

Good for the rubbish bin Apr 13, 2010
This is a compilation of random articles about microsurgery not related and not even review articles on each subject. Good for the rubbish bin
not worth the low prize Oct 5, 2008
This is a very bad book, not even useful for the uninitiated. It is a complilation of very mediocre articles, without any relation to each other and of very low scientific level. Definitely not a book to buy.
