Description

Max Thorek was a Hungarian plastic surgeon in the early 20th century and founder of the International College of Surgeons. At first an obstetrician, he later focused on general surgery and then, after World War I, his interests led him to reconstructive surgery. In this book, Thorek discusses anatomy of the chest, breast, and abdomen; he then goes on to discuss techniques related to their reconstruction following conditions caused by birth defect, illness, or disease. The publication served as a textbook meant for both student and practitioner.
