Overview

This popular collection of fifty anatomical case studies, now revised by a leading clinical anatomist, covers all the major regions of the body: head and neck, thorax, abdomen, pelvis and perineum, and limbs. Each case study includes the patient's history, physical exam results, diagnosis, therapy, and a discussion of the findings from the anatomical viewpoint. The discussion becomes the heart of each case by skillfully evolving the logic required to make a diagnosis and prescribe therapy. The cases are ably designed to encourage critical thinking and problem solving.
Lachman's well-known informal and engaging writing style has been preserved throughout the book, including his tactic of formulating incisive, well-placed questions and then quickly supplying answers. A new chapter, "Central Venous Catheterization", has been added to the text and all other chapters have been updated to reflect the newest advances in treatment and diagnostic methods. The chapters on cholecystectomy, prolapse of the uterus, and knee injury have undergone extensive revision. Many new illustrations have been added to these and other chapters.
Lachman's Case Studies in Anatomy succeeds in bridging the gap between theoretical anatomy and its application at the bedside, offering a superb demonstration of anatomical reasoning in clinical settings.
