Essential Surgical Practice 5e : Higher Surgical Training in General Surgery
Essential Surgical Practice: Higher Surgical Training in General Surgery is an indispensable source of reference for the surgical trainee. This fifth volume is fully updated and caters for the needs of the senior trainee surgeon undertaking higher surgical training in general surgery, providing detailed information on those specialties which the general surgeon is required to have a working knowledge of, with a special emphasis on trauma and vascular surgery. Significant changes in surgical training have occurred over the past decade and Essential Surgical Practice reflects this by dividing the chapters into three distinct parts: general patient care; trauma; general surgical care. The text is structured to be highly patient-oriented in line with current thought and practice, with a firm underpinning of pathophysiology. Essential Surgical Practice: Higher Surgical Training in General Surgery will be an indispensable source of reference for all surgical trainees and can be used with confidence in association with local studies and distance learning courses. The content is consistent with the scope and level of information required for international postgraduate examinations.
