This book is designed to provide the readership with a single reference for the management of head and neck cancer and contemporary approaches to reconstruction of the surgical defect.While many texts address either ablative treatment or reconstruction, this work provides a single source for both disciplines. Head and Neck Cancer: Management and Reconstruction is a combination and thorough update of two prior texts, Reconstruction of the Head and Neck: A Defect-Oriented Approach, and Head and Neck Cancer: An Evidence-Based Team Approach. Written by internationally renowned experts, this book has been organized anatomically. Each chapter covers a broad range of head and neck sites including the oral cavity, pharynx, larynx, skin, and others. Each disease-based chapter is followed by a paired chapter on the reconstructive considerations. The chapters are organized by disease management concepts followed by a chapter the principles of reconstruction and functional rehabilitation. The illustrations and photos have been carefully chosen to depict concepts that are challenging to convey in the written text. They demonstrate surgical technique and the fine points associated with the complex anatomical characteristics of the head and neck. Each chapter reflects the authors’ personal experiences and approaches to treatment and reconstruction. The authors have been encouraged to explain their rationale for treatment approaches and reconstructive considerations. Many chapters conclude with case studies that highlight the important or controversial areas of management. This book is designed as a thorough clinical review for the practicing surgeon, surgeon in training, and physician extenders who desire a single comprehensive resource. This is not an encyclopedic resource but one that is focused on the practical considerations for the management and reconstruction of patients with head and neck disease. As the editor and a contributor, I have established “editor’s notes” throughout each chapter highlighting important points and considerations. The tables and staging charts are formatted inway that is easy to understand and emphasizes only the most pertinent information. Head and Neck Cancer: Management and Reconstruction is a concise text that organizes a litany of information into a single manageable text.
