This book shares an expert experience in managing difficult facial skin cancer and presents rare cases from the authors’s own practice.
The content follows an anatomical approach based on the complex and often staged reconstruction of extreme facial skin cancer. Written in a clear and logical format, it is intended as a guideline atlas and surgical handbook, defining the principles of CLEAR (Complete Local Excision of the cancer + Aesthetic Reconstruction) and DRAPE (Delayed Reconstruction After Pathological Examination) for reconstructing the face. The book incorporates a wealth of multi-disciplinary knowledge from surgeons, anaesthetists, research scientists, speech / swallowing therapists, pathologists, radiologists and prosthetic rehabilitation specialists.
The surgical techniques presented here require a high degree of expertise. Accordingly, the book will be of interest to professionals in the fields of Plastic and Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, as well as Dermatology.
