Microsurgery: Transplantation and Replantation by Harry J. Buncke, MD, et al.
  Table of Contents / Chapter 36:
  Our use of drugs will undoubtedly change as our clinical and experimental experiences continue to evolve. New definitions of the physiologic complications of microsurgery, as well as carefully executed drug studies, should provide the foundation for the increasingly rational and specific use of pharmacologic agents.
