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.

The surgeon has to possess elaborate skills in handling soft tissue, dealing with microvascular techniques and managing bone treatment, including osteosynthesis. Furthermore, 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 difficult for 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. The surgical principles and steps are didactically presented in series of concisely labeled intraoperative photos and/or diagrams. Traditional approaches are combined with innovative techniques. Anatomical introductions connect previous knowledge of anatomy with the surgical procedures. Additionally, interesting historical landmarks and important tips and tricks regarding the techniques are provided. The compact and concise character of this book will enable the resident to study and review all issues regarding oral cancer surgery in a short time.
