Overview

A good knowledge of anatomy helps surgeons avoid anatomical complications, while masterful technique allows them to proceed rapidly and securely in the operating room. Unlike other pocket-sized surgical texts on the market, Surgical Anatomy and Technique manual provides step-by-step techniques of a wide range of general surgery procedures and reviews the anatomical entities involved in each operation.
The book's scope spans the entire body: skin and scalp, neck, breast, abdominal wall and herniae, diaphragm, esophagus, stomach, duodenum, pancreas, small intestines, appendix, colon and anorectum, liver, extrahepatic biliary tract, spleen, adrenal glands, carpal tunnel, and varicosities of the lower extremity. A chapter on laparoscopic surgery is also included. Clear, concise, and generously illustrated, this is a superb quick reference to refresh the memory of the surgical resident before entering the operating room.

The book contains black-and-white illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David R. Brenin, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This valuable new book provides an overview of surgical anatomy and selected basic operative techniques in general surgery.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide a greatly condensed version of a surgical atlas that would be small enough to fit into a lab coat pocket. Dr. Skandalakis proposes that excerpts from his book be read just before entering the operating room to perform or view a surgical procedure.
Audience: This book well suited for third- and fourth-year medical students. The book contains information well in excess of their needs. The book's secondary audience, surgical residents, would also find it of value.
Features: The main feature is well drawn black-and-white illustrations. The illustrations are packed with useful information and are frequently used to demonstrate various surgical procedures. The table of contents and index are complete and allow the reader to quickly find the subject of interest.
Assessment: This book would be very useful to its intended audience as well as surgical residents. As the preface points out, this pocket manual is not meant as a substitute for a good surgical atlas, but as an easily transportable adjunct to a large atlas. The book is indeed small enough to be carried with the reader, and if used as proposed by its author, the reader will find it of great value.
