More About This Textbook


* A work in pathophysiology designed for the clinician faced with "real world" problems and the need to make tough decisions.
• Over 450 high quality illustrations and 100 well conceived tables for quick reference by the student or clinician.
• Each chapter is developed from the clinician's perspective. The emphasis is on the essential mechanisms of the disease, or disorder involved, and their specific implications for surgical decision making and management.
• Mechanisms is the foundation upon which all of the procedures presented in CURRENT TECHNIQUES IN SMALL ANIMAL SURGERY are based. It is the natural companion volume to that work.
