Eur J Plast Surg (2009) 32:61–62 DOI 10.1007/s00238-008-0311-6 BOOK REVIEW Christopher Stone (ed), The evidence for plastic surgery. 1. Edition TFM Publishing Limited, Shrewsbury, UK, April 2008. 358pp Gudjon Leifur Gunnarsson Received: 12 November 2008 /Accepted: 20 November 2008 / Published online: 9 December 2008 Springer-Verlag 2008 evidence is paramount. Evidence sometimes is surprisingly poor in the fast growing literature. The book is overall well written by many enthusiastic colleagues, from registrars to professors, mainly specialist registrars and fellows in the UK. There are 30 chapters, each covering, in vast detail, the evidence for highly relevant topics. It begins with reconstructive issues: vacuum-assisted closure, necrotizing fasciitis, grade IIIb fracture management and then moves on to patient care, thromboprophylaxis, body mass index, burn and skin substitutes. Oncology, sentinel lymph node in melanoma, lymph node and inguinal node dissection in stage III melanoma and prognostic indicators in soft tissue sarcoma and imaging are discussed. The larger issues of congenital malformations, closure of hypospadia and cleft lip and palate are covered, as are hand surgery and microsurgery. The debate of transverse rectus abdominis myocutaneous versus deep inferior epigastric perforator flaps and immediate versus delayed breast reconstruction and gynecomastia are well covered. Before
