Operative Dictations in General and Vascular Surgery, the first volume in Springer's new Operative Dictations Made Simple Series, is intended to teach residents the principles of succinct and precise operative dictations for a wide spectrum of surgical procedures. Designed as a portable resource, the book provides typical dictations to guide the resident. Comprised of 155 procedures, this volume covers the alimentary tract, breast, lymph nodes, and head and neck, as well as vascular surgery, including aneurysmal disease and endovascular procedures. This volume provides templates for both minimally invasive and open approaches.
As it is often difficult for the surgical resident to filter what should be included in the operative report, this book provides an authoritative guide for operative dictations while remaining flexible enough to accomodate variations in the surgical procedures performed.
Written by the experienced team of a surgical department chair and a program director, the book will guide the reader step-by-step through successful dictations. The book can also serve as a quick review of the essential steps of various surgical procedures. Clearly, a must-
have for every surgical resident.
In addition, Operative Dictations in General and Vascular Surgery:
Operative Dictations Made Simple makes a perfect companion volume to Chassin's Operative Strategy in General Surgery, Third Edition, edited by Carol Scott-Conner, M.D., Ph.D. The procedures in both books are presented in the same order so the resident can easily use both resources together.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Brian G Peterson, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This book provides its readers with indications, essential steps, variations, possible complications, and operative dictation templates for 166 commonly performed general and vascular surgery operations in an easily portable form. Following each entry, there is space provided for the reader to expand upon the information provided in the preceding chapter. It is accompanied by a CD-ROM containing a full-length downloadable PDA version.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide model operative dictations that readers can modify to better fit their own personal surgical experiences, and it aims to serve as an aid for both preoperative preparation and future reference concerning each reader's personal operative endeavors. No other book strives to meet these objectives and succeeds in doing so as effectively as this one.
Audience: According to the editors, this book is intended for practicing surgeons and surgical trainees. The editors' backgrounds and previous publications certainly validate their credibility as knowledgeable and reliable sources of the material presented here. This book is a much needed resource for general surgical residents and vascular fellows to draw upon throughout their training.
Features: This book is organized in sections based on the individual organs of the body or body systems, that correspond to the sections found in Chassin's Operative Strategy in General Surgery: An Expositive Atlas, 3rd edition (Springer-Verlag, 2001). It contains a nearly exhaustive list of the most commonly performed general and vascular surgery procedures (even so far as to include a section on endovascular procedures) in 166 chapters. The layout of each chapter is uniform and contains a brief list of indications for the procedures, essential steps as well as variations in performing the procedures, and a detailed description of the procedure itself in a narrative form as used in dictated, operative reports. Most chapters are followed by blank page space for the reader to make personal notations concerning the procedure. The book provides readers with a mental picture of the steps necessary to complete a surgical case, starting with positioning the patient and ending with skin closure and transport to the recovery room. The shortcomings of this book include the fact that some chapters are not followed by sufficient space for the reader to personalize the information. Additionally, the list of indications for a given procedure are at times abbreviated, incomplete, or too generalized.
Assessment: This book succinctly and conveniently provides general and vascular surgery trainees with a much needed preparation and reference guide in portable form for their operative experiences encountered throughout their training.
