Extensively revised to reflect contemporary practice and residency training, the third edition is an excellent self-teaching tool for general surgery residents and medical students.
This is the only surgical review that presents each topic as a realistic clinical case with question-and-answer teaching points and clinical decision-making algorithms.
Each chapter has a major section on minimally invasive surgery, a Point-Counterpoint clinical debate on a controversial topic, and additional algorithms. Reflecting today's emphasis on evidence-based practice, this edition specifically indicates the level of evidence supporting diagnostic and therapeutic recommendations.
