Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David L Ring, MD (University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics)
Description: This review of the core topics in general surgery presents useful information in a compact format, but in greater depth than typical pocket review books.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide an easy reference of pertinent clinical situations and first steps toward treatment. I am unaware of any other books meeting this exact objective.
Audience: It is targeted primarily at junior level residents, but it also has excellent information for senior level residents as well in the "key steps in key operations." This would be exceptionally useful for quick review prior to any operation a surgeon may not routinely perform.
Features: The book addresses the key areas of general surgery, including vascular, oncologic, GI, pediatric, endocrine and breast, trauma, and burns, and covers general preoperative and postoperative care. The anesthesia section is particularly useful as a quick reference for general surgeons. The tables outlining key points are very helpful and enhance the use of the book as a quick reference. What is remarkable is that it seems to have just the right amount of information — not so little that it requires numerous continued source searches and not so much that it takes hours to read. A shortcoming is that some of the abbreviations are not immediately intuitive.
Assessment: I would highly recommend this book to all incoming surgical residents to use as their guide and even as a quick ABSITE review as it is much better than many of the other pocket books I have seen.
