The aims of this Atlas are to introduce the clinical applications of perforator flaps in plastic surgery and skin replacement. After a brief introduction of the concept and surgical rationale of perforator flaps, the book presents 24 different flaps from donor sites including upper limb, lower limb and the trunk. It shows the surgical dissection techniques of each flap step by step, from vascular anatomy, flap design and elevation to harvest and transfer. The book is composed of operative pictures, drawings and concise interpretation. Written by a group of micro surgeons and hand surgeons working in the fields of orthopedic, trauma, hand, plastic and reconstructive surgery, this Atlas offers a valuable reference work for medical researchers and doctors in microsurgery, orthopedic surgery and plastic and reconstructive surgery.
