Editorial

Editorial: Pakistan Journal of Plastic Surgery

Pakistan is long been an area of dynamic development in plastic surgery, adapting to differing cultures, traditions, and medical and surgical philosophies.  Recently, these changes have been even more striking and rapid.

Microsurgery, tissue expansion, craniofacial surgery, and the spin-offs of these techniques have made permanent changes in trauma, the treatment of malignancy, and aesthetic surgery.

The “Pakistan journal of plastic surgery” creates a focal point for discussion of advances in clinical technique and in research, in Pakistan and worldwide. Topics include plastic and reconstructive surgery, head and neck surgery, aesthetic and craniofacial surgery, microsurgery, trauma, and burn management.

Pakistan journal of plastic surgery provides a forum for original articles advancing the art of plastic surgery. Many describe surgical craftsmanship; others deal with complications in surgical procedures and methods by which to treat or avoid them. Coverage includes “second thoughts” on established techniques, which might be abandoned, modified, or improved. Also included are case histories; improvements in surgical instruments, pharmaceuticals, and operating room equipment; and discussions of problems such as the role of psychosocial factors in the doctor-patient and the Perhaps most important is the discussion of the role of reconstructive plastic surgery as the final step in the rehabilitation of patients u n d e rg o i n g l o n g s t a n d i n g a n d t e d i o u s reconstructive surgery for the repair of congenital, acquired, accidental, and neoplastic defects.

I was given the task to print this journal this year, I have tried to fulfill the responsibility by printing this journal. I will try my level best to continue printing quarterly issues by the help, support and contribution from my colleagues.
