Atlas of Microvascular Surgery: Anatomy and Operative Techniques

Arch Facial Plast Surg. 2008;10(1):67. doi:10.1001/archfacial.2007.1.
Text Size: A A A
Published online


This atlas, when originally published in 1992, was the first text to provide a comprehensive approach to microsurgical anatomy and harvesting details from multiple donor sites. The new, second edition of Atlas of Microvascular Surgery: Anatomy and Operative Techniques continues the great tradition of the first text with the latest information on 110 different flap harvesting techniques, including descriptions of 22 recently developed donor sites.

The 712-page text is divided into 4 main sections, including flaps from the (1) upper extremity, (2) lower extremity, (3) trunk, and (4) head and neck regions. For each of the flaps, a clear, concise review of the anatomy, innervation, harvesting techniques, and the authors' comments and insights are provided. The comments and insights sections are particularly useful because they draw from decades of experience from 2 senior surgeons. In all, there are 650 color illustrations, including 115 new drawings, providing an outstanding visual guide to the anatomy and its variations. Each section is well referenced with current literature, giving the reader a valuable resource for further study. An additional unique feature of this text is the attention paid to “recipient site exposures,” detailing the anatomical dissection of recipient vessels that may be used as alternatives to more commonly used vessels in a particular region of the body.
