Established for over 25 years as the standard text in general plastic surgery, Grabb and Smith's Plastic Surgery is now in its thoroughly revised Fifth Edition. Like its predecessors, this edition is the only comprehensive single-volume reference on the full range of procedures and techniques in plastic surgery. And for the first time, plastic surgery's fully updated classic is now on CD-ROM. The text and the CD-ROM are available for one low price. In 92 chapters, the book explains the fundamental principles of plastic surgery and microsurgery and describes specific aesthetic and reconstructive surgical procedures for various anatomic regions. More than 1,700 superb photographs and line drawings complement the text. All of the Fifth Edition's chapters are either entirely new or completely rewritten, and provide state-of-the-art information on the latest procedures, including endoscopic techniques and recent developments in laser surgery. Of special note is this edition's extensive 21-chapter section on surgery of the hand. Most of the contributors are new to this edition and all are recognized as the world's foremost leaders in plastic surgery.

This guide provides practical information for the care of patients with blunt injuries. It covers the care for truncal injuries (head, chest, abdomen) and fracture care of the extremities, the pelvis and the spine in a condensed fashion. Unlike previous, anatomically oriented outlines, this combines the anatomic location with frequent injury combinations. It is written for orthopedic and trauma surgeons, offering them a condensed outline of fracture treatment. In addition, all aspects of trauma care are covered, including associated injuries that may alter the decision making in patients with polytrauma.

Dramatic advances in acute fracture care, as well as contemporary issues involving the delivery, reimbursement, and evaluation of trauma care make the publication of this 3rd edition of OKU Trauma timely and necessary. The authors have chosen to enhance the exclusively anatomic organization of previous editions by creating three entirely new sections that address special trauma considerations, the delivery and assessment of fracture care, and managing the sequelae of acute injury.
