Principles of Nasal Reconstruction (Hardcover)
Skin cancer is among the most commonly occurring cancers, with incidence rates climbing among patients of all ages. The nose is the most common site for these cases. The vast majority of skin cancers of the nose are treated surgically by plastic surgeons, dermatologists, and otolaryngologists. Surgical excision requires reconstruction to one degree or another and Principles of Nasal Reconstruction will prove extremely helpful to any surgeon contemplating reconstruction of defects resulting from skin cancer removal. This book offers multiple guided surgical techniques and references to provide insight and practical guidance to the surgeon and trainee performing nasal reconstructions.
