Netter's Surgical Anatomy and Approaches is your quick reference to the key anatomical landmarks and operative techniques needed to best perform general surgical operative procedures! This one-of-a-kind resource combines the unmatched surgical anatomy illustrations of Frank H. Netter, MD with endoscopic, laparoscopic, and radiologic images - integrated with expert descriptions of each operative procedure - to provide a clear overview of the exposures, incision sites, surgically relevant landmarks, structures, fascial planes, and common anatomical variants and operative methods that are critical to your success in the operating room.
• Vividly visualize the surgical anatomy you need to know through the uniquely detailed, memorable artwork of Dr. Netter, Carlos Machado, MD, and other anatomy illustrators working in the Netter tradition.
• View surgical anatomy from a clinical perspective through photographs and endoscopic, laparoscopic, and radiologic images that capture important landmarks and anatomy and are integrated into an expert description of each operative procedure.
• Access the complete contents online for quick look-ups, including videos of relevant surgical dissections to help you review approaches to common operations.
Description: As the title states, the famous drawings by Dr. Frank Netter and his successor, Dr. Carlos Machado, are the foundation for this excellent and well-illustrated guide for students of surgery.
Purpose: This is a high-yield resource on both regional anatomy and contemporary surgical procedures. As Dr. Netter noted, the anatomy does not change, but our understanding of it and its clinical significance does. This book provides a comprehensive description of the most common and important contemporary operations and offers detailed depictions of relevant anatomy.
Audience: Written by established surgeons, this atlas, without a doubt, will be a very valuable tool for residents in surgical specialties as well as medical and other professional students.
Features: Divided into 10 sections, the book covers gastrointestinal, thoracic, vascular, breast, endocrine, urologic, and gynecologic operations, and essential emergent procedures. Individual chapters provide thorough and concise text descriptions of indications, anatomic landmarks and variants, details of exposure, pitfalls, and technical aspects of the operation. Superb drawings from The Netter Collection of Medical illustrations and Netter's Atlas of Human Anatomy are supplemented with intraoperative photographs. Over a dozen chapters have online video components.
Assessment: This is an excellent atlas for trainees to review the anatomy, understand key concepts, and prepare for operations. The illustrations and the high quality of didactic content place this atlas above most, if not all, its competitors and will assure it the longevity of other Netter titles.
