More than 1000 full-colour photographs of all lesions amenable to laser surgery complement this illustrated reference for cutaneous lesions. An international group of specialists offers step-by-step "how-to" instructions on the use of every laser currently available, including the carbon dixoide laser, argon laser, TAG laser, tunable dye laser and new technologies such as ruby, PDT and copper. Case studies illustrated with preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative photographs demonstrate the use of each laser for vascular and related disorders, inflammatory and infected lesions, malignant and premalignant lesions, tattoos and miscellaneous procedures. This standard-setting full-colour text/atlas demonstrates the use of established and experimental lasers - including carbon dioxide, argon, YAG, tunable dye, and ruby, PDT, and copper lasers - for surgical treatment of common and rare benign, premalignant, and malignant cutaneous lesions. The book presents some 217 strategically illustrated case summaries chronicling each step - from preoperative assessment and laser/procedure selection through postoperative care and follow-up - and offering practical, adaptable hints and advice. More than 1,000 full-colour clinical and intraoperative photographs depict suitable lesions, lasers and procedures of choice, and surgical outcomes. The book also includes laser safety guidelines, eye safety precautions during laser eyelid treatment, a review of the physical principles of lasers, a comprehensive bibliography, and a glossary.
