Books such as this one are deceptively difficult to create. The general subject is neither happy, nor easy, nor most anyone’s idea of fun. M- practice litigation, however, has become a central fact of existence in the practice of medicine today. This tsunami of lawsuits has led to a high volume of irreconcilable rhetoric and ultimately threatens the stability of the entire health care system. Our goal has been to provide a source of reliable information on a subject of importance to all who provide me- cal care in the United States. The book is divided into four sections. Part I gives an overview of insurance in general and discusses the organization of professional - ability insurance companies in particular. Part II focuses on the litigation process itself with views from the defense and plaintiff bar, and the physician as both expert and defendant. Part III looks at malpractice litigation from the viewpoint of the practicing physician. Some of the chapters are broadly relevant to all doctors—the rise of e-medicine, and the importance of effective communication, for example. The other ch- ters are constructed around individual medical specialties, but discuss issues that are of potential interest to all. Part IV looks ahead. “The Case for Legal Reform” presents changes in medical-legal jurisprudence that can be of immediate benefit. The final two chapters take a broader perspective on aspects of our entire health care system and its interface with law and public policy.

Patient safety is an overriding concern in all surgery and particularly in plastic surgery, where many of the procedures are elective, but information about patient safety has traditionally been scattered throughout the literature. Patient Safety in Plastic Surgery covers all of the essential patient safety topics in one valuable resource. Timely and practical, the book places special emphasis on clinical issues. It begins with the safety concerns most often identified by plastic surgeons, such as DVTs, surgical site infections, sleep apnea, and anesthesia safety. Beyond these obvious problems are major safety issues that often fall off the radar. These are critical to patient comfort and safety, but they do not always receive the attention they merit, such as hypothermia, nausea and vomiting, proper patient positioning, and screening and management of medical co-morbidities. Other important chapters focus on the identification and avoidance of patients who are poor psychological candidates for surgery and the legal aspects of safety. The book is edited by V. Leroy Young, a well-known plastic surgeon, and Richard Botney, a noted anesthesiologist. They offer readers the advantage of their combined experience along with that of a multidisciplinary group of experts on the different topics covered.
