In Reconstructive Surgery: Anatomy, Technique, and Clinical Applications, Drs. Zenn and Jones pay full deference to Mathes and Nahai's original contribution to the field while adding their own considerable expertise to this topic. The authors are assisted by a select group of internationally recognized contributors who provide expert commentary on clinical cases. Together, these leading surgeons share their vast experience and insights on techniques for reconstructing all anatomic regions. This two-volume set features superb medical illustrations that depict important flap anatomy as well as the step-by-step surgical technique for each of the operations described.
