Overview

The long-awaited companion to the award-winning Browse's Introduction to the Symptoms and Signs of Surgical Disease; this book explains clearly how the pathological features and extent of the disease dictate the necessary diagnostic investigations and treatment.

Each chapter will include 3 sections: (1) Relevant Pathology - a brief description of the important pathological features of the disease relevant to the clinical diagnosis, the investigations and treatment.
(2) Investigations - covering significant diagnostic clinical findings; radiological, biochemical, haematological, immunological, and pathological investigations, and genetics. The relevance of the investigations will be clearly defined, whether they confirm the diagnosis, or detect the local extent of the disease, the distant spread of the disease, or other systemic effects of the disease. The work will also cover investigations for detecting other diseases relevant to management; and investigations that help exclude confusing differential diagnoses.
(3) Treatment - to review all aspects of management; this section will summarize the diagnostic information required to plan management: it will describe each method of treatment available, discuss the indications for each treatment, describe any special preparation and pre-treatment care, any post-treatment care and the complications of treatment, enumerate the results of treatment, and provide a management plan.

The 2-book set will provide all the information necessary for the clinical years of undergraduate study, through to surgery at foundation years 1 and 2, planning for the MRCS exams, and beyond.
