Performing well and learning effectively during your clinical rotations in general surgery are challenges you face everyday. They are equally important in caring for patients and earning the grade. Time constraints and last minute assignments in the OR make reading the necessary material difficult and can jeopardize your evaluation by senior residents and attendings on your rotation. This title in the Gowned and Gloved series provides a concise review of the most common surgical procedures and relevant surgical anatomy to help you shine in the OR without getting bogged down in theory and extraneous information typical of more expansive text books. It provides the edge you need in the OR, delivering not only the information necessary to do well during your rotation, but also a plan on how to maximize your time, make the best impression, and ace your rotation.

• Features case studies with appropriate images in each chapter to illustrate the types of clinical scenarios you may experience.
• Gives you the details you need to understand all aspects of each procedure.
• Includes the surgical indications and relative contraindications to specific procedures, giving you the big picture principles for each procedure.
• Discusses standard postoperative protocols and patient rehabilitation that extends your knowledge outside the OR.
• Uses intraoperative pictures, diagrams, and treatment algorithms to highlight the important details of common surgical procedures, ranging from positioning, prepping, and draping the patient, to the surgical exposure and pertinent applied surgical anatomy, to the intricate aspects of the techniques.
• Uses call-out boxes throughout every chapter that emphasize key information and surgical cautions, and reflect common questions that the attending may ask you or that you may want to ask your attending in the OR.
• Presents a consistent chapter organization, including bulleted lists and treatment algorithms that make reference a snap.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Danny T Liu, MD (University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics)
Description: This book provides focused yet detailed descriptions of procedures, relevant pathophysiology, and anatomy of 24 common general surgical procedures for medical students. Each chapter follows a consistent format, beginning with a case study, and includes pertinent issues that influence perioperative and intraoperative care. This is the second volume in the Gowned and Gloved series; the first one focused on orthopedic surgery.
Purpose: It aims to enhance medical students' experience in the operating room by describing the technical features of a given procedure and relevant pathophysiology and anatomy. The 24 surgical procedures include the key operations that medical students would likely see in the operating room, from hernia repair to abdominal aortic aneurysm repair.
Audience: Although it is aimed at medical students doing their surgical clerkships or subinternships, the book also is a useful review for surgical residents.
Features: The book covers frequently performed common surgical procedures and provides a relatively broad discussion of surgical disease. The consistent chapter format and the text boxes that focus on critical management decisions help effectively deliver key learning points. A possible drawback is that while the book contains valuable key learning objectives, the descriptions of procedures may be considered too detailed for medical students, and not detailed enough for surgical residents.
Assessment: This is a great resource for medical students going through their surgical clerkships to prepare for an upcoming OR case. However, it is not a replacement for a general surgery textbook or an adequate study guide for the shelf exam.
