Congratulations to faculty members of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences (UAMS) Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery on the recent publication of their book, Matrix Head and Neck Reconstruction/Scalable Reconstructive Approaches Organized by Defect Location.
Published July 25 by Springer International Publishing, the 501-page illustrated surgical atlas is edited by Mauricio A. Moreno, M.D., Professor and Director of the Division of Head and Neck Surgery; Emre Vural, M.D., Professor; and Jennings R. Boyette, M.D., Associate Professor; as well as Brendan Stack Jr., M.D., an adjunct faculty member at UAMS who is also Professor and Chair of the Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery at the Southern Illinois University School of Medicine.
Jumin Sunde, M.D., an Assistant Professor of otolaryngology at UAMS, served as associate editor and J. Reed Gardner, M.D., an otolaryngology resident, was assistant editor.
The editors and other UAMS faculty members, residents, fellows, and medical students are among other experts in facial plastic surgery, oncology and otolaryngology from around the country to contribute to the book. The chapters are organized in a way that allows the reader to search out potential defects and study the possible reconstructive options available, while providing guidance to help the surgeon decide whether to manage the case alone or refer it for more expertise.
This new contribution to the field of otolaryngology is touted as providing “a unique three-dimensional approach to surgical reconstruction options in the head and neck, organized by location and defect.”
“The organization of defects and reconstructive options, combined with illustrations and high-resolution intraoperative photography, makes this the premier reconstructive reference that will be accessible when difficult reconstructive situations arise,” according to the publisher.
