With thousands of primary and secondary cases, Michael Evan Sachs has devoted his career to perfecting the art and science of rhinoplasty in general, and revision rhinoplasty in particular. Whether to improve form or function of a previous surgery or just to ensure the best possible result the first time this beautifully illustrated atlas has much to offer both experienced and beginning surgeons. This atlas illustrates not only how to repair problems, but also how to modify and refine basic surgical technique in order to minimize the incidence of failed procedures. It is the most up-to-date compendium of revisional rhinoplasty available, including several previously unpublished new techniques using titanium and bone cartilage. By mastering the techniques in this book, a primary revision can be performed intraoperatively during the first procedure, thereby obviating the need for a secondary revisional surgery.
Edited by two leading authorities in the field, this volume is a technique-oriented 'how-to' guide to an increasingly performed procedure. This book has an in-depth approach for orthopedic surgeons, sports medicine specialists, and residents. More than 350 illustrations60 in full colorcomplement detailed descriptions of surgical procedures. This book offers clinical pearls on topics such as diagnosis and evaluation, pre-op planning, surgical approach, revision technique, and post-op complications.
This lavishly illustrated atlas will have wide appeal to the growing number of specialists who perform rhinoplasty (aesthetic and/or reconstructive surgery of the nose). In addition to plastic surgeons, ENT/otolaryngologists, head & neck surgeons, dermatologists and even oral surgeons are now incorporating rhinoplasties into their practices. Over 350,000 rhinoplasties were performed in 2003, and as the number of cases increases, so does the number of failed operations. Follow up surgeries to improve form or function are referred to as 'revision' or 'secondary' rhinoplasties. Michael Evan Sachs has perfected the art and science of revision rhinoplasty with thousands of case, and readers will learn not only how to repair a failed procedure but also how to prevent one in the first place.
Revision Revisited LINDA ALLAL* & LUCILE CHANQUOY** *University ofGeneva, SWitzerland, **UniversityofNantes, France Revision is a fundamental component of the writing process. So fundamental that for some specialists writing is largely a matter of revising, or as Murray (1978) stated, 'Writing is rewriting...' (p. 85). Experience with writing does not, however, automatically translate into increased skill in revision. Learning to revise is a lengthy, complex endeavor. Beginning writers do little revision spontaneously and even experienced writers encounter difficulties in attempting to improve the quality of their texts (Fitzgerald, 1987). Although revision has been extensively dealt with in the writing and learning-to write literature, this book proposes to 'revisit' theory and research in this area through a series of new contributions. The introduction begins with an overview of what revision encompasses. It then examines two parallel interrogations that under lie the chapters assembled here, namely: (1) What are the implications of research on cognitive processes for instruction in revision? (2) What are the questions raised by instructional research for the investigation of cognitive processes of revision? A final section presents the chapters of this book.

Belief revision theory and philosophy of science both aspire to shed light on the dynamics ofknowledge – on how our view of the world changes (typically) in the light of new evidence. Yet these two areas of research have long seemed strangely detached from each other, as witnessed by the small number of cross-references and researchers working in both domains.One may speculate as to what has brought about this surprising, and perhaps unfortunate, state of affairs. One factor may be that while belief revision theory has traditionally been pursued in a bottom- up manner, focusing on the endeavors of single inquirers, philosophers of science, inspired by logical empiricism, have tended to be more interested in science as a multi-agent or agent-independent phenomenon.
