Practical Cutaneous Cryosurgery This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract The title of this book, Practical Cutaneous Cryosurgery, aptly describes its contents. It is essentially a how-to book on cryosurgery. The book begins with a brief history of cryosurgery. The next section outlines the current uses of cryosurgery, and includes a helpful table that summarizes the lesions the authors believe are best suited to cryosurgery, and in which lesions cryosurgery should be used as an alternative or adjuvant therapy. The next section deals with the physics of cryobiology in a clear and orderly way. The authors describe the microscopic effects of freezing and correlate them with the clinical picture. They also outline the optimal temperatures needed for effective therapy. In addition, there is a well-outlined and nicely diagrammed section on the use of probes in depth-temperature measurements in cryosurgery. The third chapter contains practical aspects of cryosurgery, including a thorough discussion of cryogens, delivery systems, and accessories.
