Overview

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.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

David N. Bimston
This is the fifth edition of a well-received generalsurgery book. The book evaluates the management and therapy of a widerange of surgical diseases. The previous edition was published in 1992.Each edition features chapters written by different authors. Thepurpose is to provide an up-to-date discussion of the treatment andmanagement of surgical problems. The author fully meets this objective.One can obtain a variety of viewpoints on a subject by reading the samechapter in different editions. Written for the practicing surgeon andthe senior resident, leaders in the field of surgery discuss many rareand controversial issues. This book is not intended for the surgicalnovice. The book covers a wide range of subjects that are clearlypresented. Most discussions include a critical interpretation ofcurrent literature and are supplemented by easy to follow figures,tables, and charts. The fifth edition features updated references and anew section on minimally invasive surgery. As with previous editions,this book is a useful resource for both senior residents and surgicalpractitioners. It provides a current review of the management andtherapy of a wide range of surgical problems. The text's concisepresentation makes it useful for both primary and referenceuses.

This book for general surgeons is provided as anupdate to address standard of care for all problems that a generalsurgeon may encounter. This series of Current Surgical Therapy isreleased every three years. The purpose is to provide an up-to-datesource for surgical management and therapeutic options in generalsurgery. These are certainly worthy objectives and the authors meetthese objectives as this is the most comprehensive update in generalsurgery. This book is written for residents of surgery and is morehelpful to more senior residents in surgery. It is pertinent forpracticing general surgeons in academic and private settings. It isespecially useful in studying for the American Board of SurgeryQualifying and Certifying Examinations, as well as the RecertifyingExaminations. The authors are certainly credible authorities. Itcovers virtually every problem that a general surgeon may encounter inhis or her career. There are new expanded sections focusing oninnovative techniques in general surgery, as well as minimally invasivesurgical techniques. This is an excellent text that stands out amongothers as an authority on up-to-date therapeutic options in generalsurgery. It is an excellent text for study for the American Board ofSurgery or Recertifying Examinations. The release of new editionsevery three years keeps this series current in standards ofcare.
From The Critics
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: Now in its tenth edition, this is an update of one of the standards in surgical review books. The previous edition was published in 2008.
Purpose: This is an overview of surgical care focused on the solution to clinical problems rather than on anatomy and physiology.
Audience: Senior surgical trainees, those in preparation for standardized examinations, and senior practitioners are an appropriate audience for a work presenting clinical insights from leading surgeons at North American medical centers..
Features: The book is divided by anatomic region or organ system. Initial sections detail esophageal, gastric, large and small bowel, hepatobiliary, pancreatic and splenic considerations. Subsequent chapter groups cover hernia, breast and endocrine surgery, skin and soft tissue problems, vascular surgery, trauma, and critical care. Another group of chapters focuses on laparoscopic techniques. Three final chapters provide insight into Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES). Chapters are clearly written and tables and illustrations are effectively used. The number of color illustrations increases every year and the quality is excellent. Each chapter includes a brief list of suggested readings, which represent summary papers and primary or important secondary literature. References date to within two years of publication, although classic sources may be older. The table of contents groups chapters and lists authorship, while an extensive subject index includes separate citations for boxes, figures, and tables. The book also includes access to a searchable online version of the book.
Assessment: This continues as the clinical reference of choice for general and vascular surgeons, particularly those taking oral certifying examinations. Updates are obvious since the previous edition in 2008, and the quality of illustrations has steadily improved. Finally, this edition includes access to a web site with the searchable text and additional resources.
