Current Surgical Therapyby John L. Cameron
The seventh edition of Current Surgical Therapy features 280 all-new chapters, each written by an expert surgeon who offers proven, practical approaches to the surgical management of a given disease. Contributors have been chosen not only for their prominence in the field, but also because they are actively involved in patient care. Each chapter covers a condition that is seen with some frequency in the general surgeon's practice. For faster reference, chapters follow a consistent format: patient selection, timing of therapy, preoperative care, operative technique, postoperative management, adjuvant therapy, prevention and management of complications, and follow-up. Diagnosis and pathophysiology are discussed only to the extent that they affect treatment choices.
