Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Louis J. Merriam, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This is a unique and superbly written book that employs the algorithm in clinical decision making. Written by leaders in their fields, this book provides a current and concise approach to frequently encountered problems faced by surgeons today.
Purpose: The purpose is to address commonly encountered surgical diseases in a succinct, systematic fashion. This approach allows the reader to develop a streamlined approach toward clinical decision making, a goal which is more than met by the contributors of this text.
Audience: This book would appeal to both residents and practicing surgeons.
Features: The clinical management of over 100 diseases in the areas of general, vascular, trauma, pediatric, head and neck, orthopedic, and thoracic surgery are discussed. Each chapter is brief yet complete, with current facts on pathophysiology, differential diagnosis, and methods of diagnostic evaluation. At the end of each chapter, an algorithm in figure form is provided which outlines the clinical management of the previously discussed surgical disease. This format allows the reader to further assimilate the material and efficiently apply it in when making clinical decisions. The condensed yet precise nature of this book makes it an excellent quick reference for practicing surgeons and a must for surgical housestaff.
Assessment: The algorithm is a time-tested technique of efficiently applying knowledge toward the process of problem solving. The editors have effectively utilized this method to create an outstanding approach toward surgical decision making. This book is essential reading during residency training and a valuable addition to the practicing surgeon's library.
