Techniques for ideal wound healing. By Richard Carlton Schultz. Cciatrix healing for surgeons. The second edition is based on exactly the same material with 4 new chapters on animal bites, gunshot wounds, facial fractures in children and the reconstruction of facial deformities with alloplastic materials. For some extraordinary reason cicatri author does not include a single reference to the surgical literature, yet the full names and addresses of no less than 27 medical equipment and drug firms are mentioned in footnotes, 1 of them 5 times, 4 of them 4 times.

Yet despite this impressive display of the skill of the un-named medical artist sthe excellent typography, a surfeit of sophisticated photographic evidence and the undoubted enthusiasm of the author, the text is disappointingly lifeless.

It is at once the key to his identity and his primary means of communicating both thought and emotion. Acknowledging these important functions of the face, modern society has come to place a premium on its preservation. Occasionally the wrong adjective is used: Some of the surgical manoeuvres that are illustrated are excellent examples of inadequate operations that might lead the tyro into serious trouble, such as the application of a circular full-thickness graft for an oblique scar causing ectropion of the lower eyelid p.

The surgical terminology used is also suspect. The drawings in this volume will undoubtedly be used to make innumerable sets of lecture slides.

The same compliment, unfortunately, cannot be paid to the text or to many of the practical manoeuvres recommended by the author. Techniques for Ideal Wound Healing. English language edition, edited by E. This unusual book presents in pictures a wide variety of the surgical techniques which encourage ideal wound healing.


Starting with the simplest considerations, such as making the best incision, the book describes the best techniques for suturing and dressing wounds and skin grafting defects of different shapes Injury: The principles of local anaesthesia are also illustrated.

Gentleness and asepsis in handling the tissues are recognized prerequisites. The subject matter is mainly concerned with wound closure without tension by using appropriate flaps. Cicxtrix practice is based on sound surgical principles which make the book particularly useful for students and young doctors.

There may not be much here that is new to the experienced plastic surgeon, but cicstrix surgeons will read the whole book which one can do in an hour or two without being made to think again about their own technique, or without real pleasure at such an artistic presentation of fundamental surgical procedures. This is followed by a cicatrjx on basic sciences of the hip, which deals among other things with the metabolism, nutrition and repair of articular cartilage; one of those grey areas so many young surgeons would do well to read about.

Fractures of the femoral neck are covered in two chapters which deal with every aspect of classification, treatment and complications. The optina of prosthetic replacement which are quoted should certainly make us much more selective in deciding on this operation.

The chapter on metabolic disorders, which deals mainly with osteoporosis and osteomalacia, is excellent. Fractures of cicatfix femoral neck in children and slipped upper femoral epiphysis are fully covered. The degree of slipped femoral epiphysis and the treatment is well dealt with, especially in late cases by osteotomy. Avascular necrosis is considered in general under pathological fractures, but it is also dealt with in practically every chapter in the book in a particular relationship to the subject under discussion.


There is much discussion about the role of weight bearing after hip injury in causing avascular necrosis. The author does not say how a young child is kept non-weight bearing for 9 weeks with a painless hip. Classification of dislocation of the hip is always complicated by the acetabular fractures.

Here a further classification is made. Xicatrix text, however, refers to these as three-quarter oblique and one-quarter oblique views. This clearly wants restating. The final chapter on medical factors, pre- and postoperative assessment, is ckcatrix as it deals not only with the more common conditions such as bronchopneumonia, pulmonary embolus and fat embolus, but also with thyroid disease, ataxia and Parkinsonism, including the variety due to drugs used for depression; conditions from which old people suffer.

The book is well written in clear print with a hard back and is well worth reading; but it is expensive atespecially as there are some printing errors. This book is a record of the Coventry Conference held in Julyand all concerned should be congratulated on its prompt appearance. It has the great merit of presenting the current practice of the various speakers and the other participants in all the important branches of chest injury.

Although the reproduction of some of the illustrations is poor, generally speaking they are adequate. The various papers provide an excellent combination of academic and practical considerations, which is enhanced by the inclusion of the discussion between the participants, many of whom have considerable experience in the field. This is a book which should be read by everyone interested in the subject.
