This excellent textbook has been completely revised. More is included than the title implies. Actually, it deals with the methods and application of the closure of surface defects arising from burns, traumatic avulsions, radiation injuries, and reconstruction of wounds after surgical removal of large tumors. Excellent chapters on the care of burns cover even the minutest detail. Different types of skin grafts and flaps are discussed. Methods of their cutting and application and their indications are shown. Special chapters deal with the repair of the hand and major joint injuries that involve skin or pedicle flap replacement. Repair of eyelid, orbit, neck, and nasal skin defects are well demonstrated. One chapter deals with homografts and a skin bank. Plastic surgeons are called on to remove many large benign and malignant skin tumors. Many of these have been complicated by injudiciously prolonged radiation therapy. All of these lesions must be removed
