BSAVA consistently publishes quality manuals, all liberally illustrated with clear photos and accompanied with instructive and concise text. This edition follows all of those guidelines and more.

Wound reconstruction is tricky business, fraught with failure through no fault of the clinician. Skin grafting is difficult at best, but when you are looking at areas where there is little skin to graft, such as legs or tails, then the going gets tough. This book provides some options that may help achieve a successful graft.

The cases here are well illustrated and described with graft patterns, skin expanding techniques, sheet grafting, burn grafting, mesh preparation, and wound care. Some incredibly difficult cases are shown involving grafting of the face (shotgun injury, tumors), and footpad grafts. Also described are full thickness deficits, requiring some inventive repair techniques.

Each case is described in logical order. First do this, then do that. Cautions are located in color blocks and in bold type. The surgeries are listed in the Table of Contents by technique, tension-relieving, transposition flap, rotation flap, open wound management and more.

Included are reparative surgeries such as anal sacculectomy, episioplasty, caudectomy, and mastectomy. The closing chapter covers complications of wound healing and treatment of non-healing wounds.

The book is European design, measuring 8-1/4" by 11-3/4", so it will stick up on your shelf and make it easy to find. Paper cover, 276 pages, liberally illustrated with color photos, drawings, graphs, and charts. An excellent reference that should be in every library. Sooner or later you are going to see one of these cases.
