Nowadays, there are few monograghs about the surgical procedures and cases of plastic reconstruction flap surgery. The type and technology of flaps used in oncoplastic surgery are different from those used in other medical fields. For example, compare to the flaps used in superficial limb trauma, the defect area after tumorectomy is always larger, deeper and more complicated. So the flap tissue needed must be large enough, which we have various ways to harvest. The flap technology itself is flexible. So is the anatomic situation. That’s why a vivid and detailed explanation is needed to illustrate both common and uncommon cases, and to provide their solutions respectively. This book is based on plenty perioperative cases in details, including operative photos, and 1500 colorful anatomic pictures, in order to demonstrate the tips, the merits and demerits, the indications and attentions of these operations. The structure of this book is complete and tight, providing the latest progress in oncoplastic surgery.
