Editorial Reviews

Paula K. Shireman
This textbook, which outlines the pathophysiology and treatment options of surgical diseases, is currently in its sixth edition. The previous edition was published in 1989. The authors present surgical knowledge based on normal and abnormal physiology, thereby making treatment for various diseases easily understandable and logical. The stated audience includes medical students, surgeons-in-training, and practicing physicians. Although medical students may find this book too detailed and long for use during a surgical clerkship, it is most valuable to surgical residents who need a broad understanding of disease states and treatments. It is also an excellent review for practicing surgeons. The book is organized into "Basic Considerations" and "Specific Considerations. The first section covers a wide range of topics, such as shock, oncology, and incorporating basic science and how it applies to the surgical patient. The second section is organized by organ systems. Each chapter starts with the anatomy and physiology of the particular organ, and then describes disease states and therapy. Many of the numerous illustrations demonstrate the relevant surgical procedures. Multiple references are provided in each chapter and often include both classical and recent papers. This textbook has long been a staple of surgical education. Approximately half of the chapters in this sixth edition are by new contributors, and the rest of the chapters have been revised. The addition of minimally invasive surgery techniques and their application to various diseases is predominantly new to this edition. It remains an outstanding textbook on general surgery.

The 25th anniversary edition of a classic textbook of surgery originally published in 1969, and most recently (5th ed.) in 1989. The present edition is extensively revised and updated to reflect the explosion of scientific information and the advancement of the field of surgery. The chapters on breast, tumors of the head and neck, peripheral arterial disease, manifestations of gastrointestinal disease, esophagus and diaphragmatic hernia, colon, rectum, and anus, gallbladder and biliary tract, pancreas, abdominal wall hernias, pituitary, urology, gynecology, neurosurgery, and orthopedics all represent new presentations by new authors.
