Description: This is the ninth edition of a time-honored, respected comprehensive textbook of surgery.
Purpose: A comprehensive review of surgical principles and technique is provided, with a significant emphasis on minimally invasive procedures.
Audience: Students interested in a career in surgery, surgical trainees at all levels, and practitioners desiring a review for certification exams are an appropriate audience for this work, which originates from a group of leading authors and editors from throughout the United States.
Features: The 48 chapters are supplemented by a DVD featuring surgical techniques. Chapters are grouped by basic and specific considerations. Basic considerations include systemic response to surgery, fluid and electrolyte management, transfusion, and surgical bleeding and shock. Core surgical disciplines, including trauma, wound management, transplantation, and approaches to minimally invasive techniques are discussed. The second and largest portion of the book includes considerations particular to organ systems. Traditional surgical disciplines such as pediatrics, urology, gynecology, neurosurgery, and orthopedics are presented. Focused discussion is provided on topics specific to general surgeons, such as pancreatic disease, breast disease, intestinal disorders, and cardiovascular disease. Chapters are clearly written and contain extensive reference lists that include citations dated to within two years of publication. Tables and figures are frequently used. Photographs and radiographs are less frequently used and reproduce with adequate quality. Multicolor drawings present material effectively and reproduce well. Each chapter opens with a listing of key points and subheadings. Key references are collected after the final chapter and prior to an extensive subject index of over 100 pages with separate listings for tables and figures. The majority of material on the DVD is introductory and advanced laparoscopic procedures.
Assessment: In its evolution over nine editions, Schwartz's Principles of Surgery has reflected the latest in surgical practice. In the age of minimally invasive surgery, illustrations are important and these authors include a wealth of visual material of good to excellent quality.
