Overview

This volume offers authoritative, evidence-based recommendations for preventing and managing complications in all current general surgery procedures. The opening sections discuss institutional risk management issues and risks common to all operations, such as wound healing problems, infection, shock, and complications in immunosuppressed patients. Subsequent sections focus on complications of specific procedures in thoracic, vascular, gastric, endocrine, breast, and oncologic surgery, as well as organ transplantation and pediatric surgery.

For each procedure, the authors discuss surgical goals, expected outcomes, preoperative identification of risk factors, intraoperative technique, and postoperative risk. Numerous decision-making algorithms, drawings of techniques, and tables complement the text.
