Our book

Dear colleagues!

I am pleased to now present our well-known book online:

Free microvascular and axial pedicled flaps

Free microvascular flaps have brought a revolution in reconstructive surgery. Because of their excellent vascularisation, they have expanded the range of indications for tissue replacement, reduced the complication rate and shortened the healing time.

This book – the first of its kind in German – provides an overview of the most common flap plastics, including their respective axially pedicled variants, as well as a presentation of some rarely used flaps, showing the more advanced possibilities.

The book thus helps the surgeon to select the optimal solution in each individual case from the multitude of competing techniques when planning the operation.

Brief descriptions of the individual flaps at the beginning of each chapter and a quick reference in the appendix facilitate quick orientation. The topography is presented in detail with clear drawings.

Interested parties: Plastic and reconstructive surgeons, trauma surgeons, hand surgeons, maxillofacial and ENT surgeons, orthopaedic surgeons, gynaecologists.
