Overview

The eighth edition of this classic textbook has been brought rigorously up-to-date. Three-fourths of the chapters, though they bear the same chapter titles, are written by new authors. In addition, six chapters have been added, on cell, genomics, and molecular surgery; soft tissue sarcomas; anesthesia of the surgical patient; the surgical management of obesity; patient safety, errors, and complications in surgery; and surgical considerations in the elderly. The book's design aims for clarity, with the text presented in outlined sections and clear and frequent illustrations, both drawings and photos. Each chapter contains a lengthy list of references. The contributors and editors are surgeons who teach and practice in the US. Annotation ©2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
