The perioral region is the only area of the body containing all types of tissue: muscle, bone, cartilage, skin and mucosa. Because of this unique anatomy, ablative tumor surgery and reconstructive surgery remain very complex. On the one hand, the surgeon has to possess elaborate skills in handling the soft tissue, dealing with microvascular techniques and managing bone treatment including osteosynthesis. On the other hand, he has to prepare defined strategies to anticipate any upcoming surgical problem. As there is an overwhelming repertoire of ablative and reconstructive procedures, it is hard for students, residents and young surgeons to find the right way to "survive in the operative jungle." This book concentrates on key procedures that offer young surgeons the possibility to solve almost any case of oral cancer. Basic principles are didactically edited in series of pictures and/or diagrams. Traditional approaches are combined with innovative techniques. Anatomical introductions connect previous knowledge with the surgical procedures. Additionally, historic landmarks and recommendations regarding to the techniques are given in an informational, sometimes anecdotic style. The compact and concise character of the book should enable the resident to study, prepare and recapitulate all issues regarding oral cancer surgery in a short time.
