Sandra Shurey, Sital Vara, and Abdul Ahmed give a practical surgical guidebook that provides a complete, step-by-step guidance to fundamental microsurgical techniques for repairing small arteries, nerves, and the vas deferens. This useful website also provides access to instructional films demonstrating basic microsurgical methods.
This manual incorporates the knowledge and skill that has trained generations of surgeons, based on 40 years of combined experience from the famous microvascular course held at Northwick Park. The manual provides readers with the knowledge they need to swiftly and confidently understand the principles of microsurgery through clear graphics and simple prose.
The authors underline that microsurgery is not intrinsically difficult; sufficient training is all that is required. There is no magic formula; rather, learning must be done slowly, methodically, and step by step. This guidebook is a useful resource for surgeons in training and practice, as well as researchers who are increasingly incorporating microsurgical techniques into their trials.
In summary, this practical surgical manual enables readers to gain competency in fundamental microsurgical methods, laying the groundwork for future success in the field of microsurgery.
