Ablative tumor surgery of the head and neck region often results in severe cosmetic and functional deformities. In these cases, microvascular free-tissue transfer enables three-dimensional reconstruction of head and neck defects. The selection of adequate donor tissue and a profound knowledge of the human anatomy and the various harvesting techniques are paramount in ensuring successful reconstruction.
Reflecting current surgical approaches, this book presents the
most frequently used flaps in head and neck surgery, including
detailed overviews as well as their respective pearls and pitfalls.
Moreover, each section contains a synopsis and pre-operative
Neuroendovascular and neurointerventional therapy is a specialty where disseminating personal knowledge and expert opinion is extremely important, owing to the lack of large-scale clinical trials. The management of complications that occur during or immediately after therapeutic interventions is particularly challenging because these can significantly affect patient outcomes. This book presents how various complication scenarios are handled by well-qualified authorities in the field of neurointervention from three disciplines: neurology, neurosurgery, and neuroradiology. Contributors describe their management of these complications, focusing on the common principles that all the specialists agree on, and give tips and tricks for 'bailout' procedures to help get the practitioner out of trouble. The book is well illustrated and covers the full range of neuroendovascular and neurointerventional procedures. The book will appeal to neurointerventionists, neuroradiologists, stroke physicians, neurosurgeons and vascular surgeons for its practical approach to managing these commonly encountered problems.
Back Cover Text Breast reconstructive and oncoplastic surgery can reduce the sense of mutilation resulting from oncologic surgery and meets the need to provide breast cancer treatment that will not only eradicate the cancer but also re-establish the patient's quality of life.

Hearing loss can vary in type ranging from conductive, mixed to sensorineural, as well as in degree from mild, moderate, severe to profound. There could also be multiple permutations and combinations like moderate mixed hearing loss or severe conductive hearing loss. In addition, the hearing loss could be unilateral or bilateral. While cochlear implants were devised for bilateral profound sensorineural hearing loss, various other devices have been invented for other types of hearing losses. Research continues to design a suitable implant which would amplify sound for patients who cannot be candidates for cochlear implants.
