Learn to master cleft palate and lip repair techniques with high-quality videos by renowned surgeons
In cleft surgery, a detailed understanding of the steps in the operation is uncompromisingly important to learning and mastering techniques. Step-by-step illustrations and photographs still leave much of the story untold. The Duke Cleft Video Collection by Jeffrey R. Marcus and Anna R. Carlson fills all gaps in existing step-wise instructional materials that have been the mainstay of traditional surgical teaching. "While a picture tells a thousand words, a video tells a million." This remarkable video atlas provides unparalleled visual insights on a comprehensive selection of core surgical procedures for repair of cleft lip and palate. Presented on a convenient flash drive with a concise supplementary booklet, the videos feature a novel capture method, high quality production, and expert insights.
Key features of the video collection:
The intraoral videoscopic method, developed by the authors, provides a complete field of view of procedures that are challenging to teach and learn otherwise due to visibility constraints in the surgical field
Different approaches for a wide range and severity of deformities are presented, covering flaps, bone grafting, and revision surgeries
Twenty-seven high-quality videos with nearly six hours of total footage encompass a full spectrum of cleft repair procedures across the age continuum
Procedures performed by a single surgeon with accompanying narratives deliver a consistent style and format
The goal of this unique video resource is to help cleft surgeons deliver best outcomes for the lifetime of the child and to prevent or greatly limit future secondary corrections. This is a must-have, insightful video companion for pediatric plastic reconstructive and maxillofacial surgeons to access on computers, smartphones, or tablets.
