The clarity of writing and the high standard of illustration that characterized the original edition remains. The text in this edition has been altered substantially, as the editors point out, to include a much more extensive presentation of ancillary investigations, and there are new chapters on microbiology and theatre safety, laparoscopy and ethics.
