Editorial Reviews

A concise reference to the relevant operative anatomy of procedures encountered by most general surgery residents; a text for medical students rotating through surgery; and a review for anatomy instructors and surgeons. The volume is divided into sections based on anatomic regions, with individual chapters presenting technical anatomic considerations for specific operative procedures. The illustrations show both the topographic and regional anatomy, and also focus on the anatomy visualized as the procedure progresses. Each section concludes with selected references to benchmark articles. An appendix describes common surgical instruments and their use. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
