This handbook is designed to be readily transportable for dermatologists and dermatologic surgeons, as well as those in training, dermatology residents and fellows, and medical students rotating through dermatology.
Written by leading experts in the field and designed for dermatologists and residents, this book includes evidence-based medicine that underscores the clinical data, as well as practical tips on how to use both biologic and systemic agents in the field of dermatology. In the past decade, there have been several groundbreaking advances in medical dermatology. Novel biologic and systemic agents have been developed to treat inflammatory disorders, including psoriasis and atopic dermatitis, as well as skin malignancies such as melanoma.
Biologic and Systemic Agents in Dermatology encompasses these developments by describing the mechanism of action of these various agents and the clinical efficacy and safety to treating these respective disorders. The utilization of biologic and systemic agents in other dermatologic conditions, pharmacoeconomics, pharmacovigilance, and clinical trials outcomes are discussed as well as topics including tumor necrosis, conventional systemic agents for psoriatic disease, and oral agents for atopic dermatitis.
The problem with current concepts of skin tension lines is that they seem to differ in different textbooks, and lines for surgical egress, which work in conditions of low tension, are not necessarily suitable for skin cancer surgery. Biodynamic Excisional Skin Tension Lines for Cutaneous Surgery describes skin biomechanics, the properties of collagen and elastin, lower limb skin vascularity and also maps BEST lines across the body, making it a great reference guide for plastic or dermatologic surgery worldwide. As such, it will be beneficial for anyone performing cutaneous surgery and skin cancer excisions in clinical practice, or for those planning further research into skin biomechanics to read this volume.
We all know that taking good care of our skin is the key to any effective health and beauty regime. But with so much conflicting information out there, the path to healthy skin can seem far from clear.
