Reconstruction of the head and neck; a defect-oriented approach.


Reconstruction of the head and neck; a defect-oriented approach.

Genden, Eric M.

Thieme Medical Publishers


180 pages




Genden (otolaryngology-head and neck surgery, Mount Sinai School of Medicine) supplies surgeons and fellows involved in head and neck reconstruction with 10 chapters that identify reconstructive options for specific defects. Otolaryngology-head and neck surgeons from the US describe oromandibular and palatomaxillary complex reconstruction; oral cavity, cheek, neck, pharynx, cervical esophagus, hypopharynx, skull base, and scalp reconstruction; management of the paralyzed face; and pediatric and microvascular reconstruction. Each chapter covers relevant anatomy, evaluation, classification, approaches to reconstruction, the order of events, the orientations of the flap, and details on functional and aesthetic results, with many color photos and b&w drawings.
