Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This is a softbound collection of questions designed to help the reader prepare for in training or other board style examinations. It is designed to correspond specifically to the Sabiston Textbook of Surgery: The Biological Basis of Modern Surgical Practice, 16th Edition (W.B. Saunders, 2001).
Purpose: Questions are designed to allow house officers to review for routine examinations associated with their training and to permit the practicing surgeon to prepare for recertification.
Audience: The surgical trainee or practitioner awaiting recertification is an appropriate audience for this work. Authors from the corresponding surgery textbook have been retained.
Features: Although the parent textbook contains 13 sections and over 70 chapters, there are just 21 chapters in this review. Broader subject headings are used for this collection of questions. General topics are covered first, such as basic science and perioperative management. Later chapters address surgical principles for management of various organ systems as well as related surgical specialties of neurosurgery, orthopedics, gynecology, urology, and plastic surgery. Questions are given in a multiple-choice format where one or several answers may be appropriate. Each multiple-choice question is followed by a single paragraph discussion highlighting the rationale for the answer. The answer is then given with a reference to a specific page in the textbook for information on the topic. There are no references or illustrations. Questions in each chapter tend to begin with fundamental anatomic concerns and proceed through essential teaching points in clinical management. There are approximately 1,200 review questions.
Assessment: This is a worthwhile tool for the house officer or practitioner facing standard examinations. Coverage in all subject areas is not uniform, as one may expect when many authors contribute to a small collection of questions. Nonetheless, the format is user friendly and the content provides a thoughtful exercise for the reader.
