This abundantly illustrated guide, based on work at the renowned Rancho Los Amigos National Rehabilitation Center, describes and depicts operative techniques for the treatment of the devastating wounds caused by pressure ulcers. Comprehensive information is provided on the surgical anatomy and the variety of wounds that may be encountered. In addition, interventions in patients with complicated ulcers are discussed. Pressure ulcer is a topic of growing importance in the fields of plastic surgery, surgical education, and physical therapy - and also has important psychosocial, medicolegal, and cost management implications. Readers will find Reconstructive Plastic Surgery of Pressure Ulcer to be an ideal aid to appropriate selection of flap surgery in the individual patient. It will help in the achievement of satisfactory outcomes and will especially assist surgeons who lack the requisite specialized training and experience.

"The book is intended to showcase the author's expertise in dealing with the repair and treatment of complex ulcerative wounds. Dr. Rubayi's vast experience with pressure ulcer care is skillfully documented in this book. The audience includes plastic surgery trainees and practicing plastic surgeons. The author's experience with over 25,000 procedures assures his credibility." (Jeffrey S. Rosenthal, Doody's Book Reviews, September, 2015)

Das Dateiformat PDF zeigt auf jeder Hardware eine Buchseite stets identisch an. Daher ist eine PDF auch für ein komplexes Layout geeignet, wie es bei Lehr- und Fachbüchern verwendet wird (Bilder, Tabellen, Spalten, Fußnoten). Bei kleinen Displays von E-Readern oder Smartphones sind PDF leider eher nervig, weil zu viel Scrollen notwendig ist. Mit Wasserzeichen-DRM wird hier ein „weicher” Kopierschutz verwendet. Daher ist technisch zwar alles möglich – sogar eine unzulässige Weitergabe. Aber an sichtbaren und unsichtbaren Stellen wird der Käufer des E-Books als Wasserzeichen hinterlegt, sodass im Falle eines Missbrauchs die Spur zurückverfolgt werden kann.
