The Keystone Perforator Island Flap Concept is the definitive guide to the development, design and surgical application of the effective surgical technique known as the keystone island flap.
Clearly presented and easy to follow, this excellent Australian publication features an accompanying DVD, further exploring this surgical method.
The book's expert authors discuss the design elements underpinning the keystone island flap, examine specific defects in various body regions and show how keystone island flaps have been used successfully in a wide range of applications.
Additional information is included throughout The Keystone Perforator Island Flap Concept, including: the history of the keystone island flap; neurovascular anatomy based on dermatomal delineations; reconstructive alternatives to keystone island flaps; and technical refinements.
Clinical cases employing this reconstructive surgical technique are featured throughout the text. This case-oriented approach is enhanced by intraoperative videos and detailed photos which show the operative sequence and post-operative results of the keystone island flap concept.
