Eur J Plast Surg (2003) 25:436 DOI 10.1007/s00238-002-0435-z BOOK REVIEW Andreas Nikolis Key notes on plastic surgery. A.M. Richards. Blackwell Science, Oxford, 2002. 313 pp, ISBN 0-632-5668-1, US$ 50 Published online: 18 January 2003 © Springer-Verlag 2003 This handbook covers the “essentials” of the specialty in a concise and well organized manner. The information which is presented in list form allows a quick and thor- ough review of the most important and relevant points of plastic surgery. The handbook itself does not provide an in depth discussion of plastic surgery topics, simply be- cause it is not intended to do so. A myriad of textbooks exist for that. This book provides the medical student and junior resident rotating on a plastic surgery service with an important guide that encompasses the key as- pects of a vast and extremely diverse field of surgery. The benefit to a senior or chief resident in plastic surgery is the book’s ability to provide a quick reference to im- portant classifications, operative indications, anatomical considerations, and treatment strategies in plastic sur- gery. One of the most relevant aspects of this handbook is the concise bibliography found at the end of each of its ten chapters. This bibliography identifies the historically important articles that are a must read for the graduating resident. Key Notes on Plastic Surgery is thus a valuable and worthwhile addition to the library of plastic surgeons in training and junior consultants. A.
