Description

‘Best of the Best’ solutions to challenging reconstructive surgery of the nose

The nose, with its unique and individual topography, presents particular challenges for reconstructive and skin cancer surgeons. A number of approaches can be adopted, but how does the dermatologic surgeon choose the best for any particular defect? 

Reconstructive Conundrums in Dermatology: The Nose provides an atlas compendium of novel approaches to these challenges. Based on the Reconstructive Conundrum series published in the journal Dermatologic Surgery, a range of cases provide photographs of the defect before and immediately after reconstruction, and two long-term, follow-up images. The authors provide a detailed explanation for their choice of reconstruction. The Editors’ commentaries allow residents and experienced surgeons alike to compare different reconstructive alternatives and to explore the thought processes behind them.

The 30 conundrums each provide a full background to the problem and the strategies underpinning successful surgical solution. They have been grouped into nasal subunits covering: 

  • Nasal dorsum
  • Nasal sidewall
  • Nasal tip
  • Nasal ala
  • Alar groove
  • Alar rim

Jam packed with clinical wisdom and surgical pearls, Reconstructive Conundrums in Dermatologic Surgery: The Nose provides a guiding hand to anyone faced with daunting surgical reconstructions.
