Written by one of the nation’s foremost experts on the diagnosis and treatment of surgical infections, Contemporary Guide to Surgical Infections™ is divided into two segments. Segment 1—Sections 1 through 10—defines and characterizes surgical infections and discusses the general principles of diagnosis and management, including routine operations and potential postoperative complications. Specific sections expand on these concepts to provide helpful information for clinicians to consider when managing surgical infections. Segment 2 —Sections 11 through 31—provides more detailed narrative descriptions for the majority of specific infections associated with the respective anatomic locations. The goal of this segment is not to provide an encyclopedic overview of every possible infectious condition that might arise in that individual organ, but rather to highlight the infectious issues that first-line practitioners are likely to encounter.
