"Noma the face of Poverty is a firsthand account about noma by the late Dutch surgeon, Dr. K.W. Marck. Dr. Marck travelled to Sokoto, Nigeria in 1997 with a surgical team to provide life altering surgery to children afflicted with noma and other facial deformities. In his book, he details his first work mission and goes on to give a history of noma going back over 2,000 years. He ends his book with an overview of the disease, including its causes, prevention and surgical intervention. This important book comes at a critical time when the WHO is set to vote in 2023 on whether noma will become classified as a Neglected Tropical Disease, thereby focusing attention and resources aimed at eradicating this cruel and disfiguring disease." Written by Dr. Joel Rosenbloom

"Globally there is a burden of approximately 1, 60,000 new cases of cleft lip and palate every year, yet there is no single comprehensive source on this problem. This surgical atlas fills the gap in the knowledge of appropriately handling cleft lip and palate cases. This pictorial resource has been compiled and edited by an expert who operates one of the highest cleft lip and palate correction programs in the world and has performed more than 34,000 surgeries, restoring function to numerous patients across the globe. It covers all variants and types of cleft lip and palate defects, including both primary cases as well as in previously operated cases. It starts with an in-depth elaboration on anatomy, physiology, and pathology of the (normal) palate and cleft palate, moving towards, classification and identification of defects with the help of clear flow charts and simple algorithms enabling better diagnosis and decision making. With over 1500 high definition images and hand-drawn sketches, this atlas provides a detailed description of diagnosis, problems and the management of each type of defect.
