Editorial Reviews

This collection of 201 articles by masters of surgery should appeal particularly to the surgeon who does not practice in a major urban setting and cannot readily refer patients to subspecialists, as well as to residents rotating through specialty services. Nine sections cover the perioperative care of the surgical patient; basic surgical skills: new and emerging technology; the head and neck; endocrine surgery; breast, chest, and mediastinum; the diaphragm; the gastointestinal tract; nongastrointestinal transabdominal surgery; and vascular surgery. The third edition introduces a new spectrum of operations and procedures performed with newer techniques, such as videoscopic surgery. Each chapter is followed by a suggested reading list and editor's comments. Detailed diagrams abound. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
