This short textbook presents sixty cases with the detail and patient-specific data encountered in actual clinical practice. Cases cover the major points emphasized in the in-training exam and in written and oral boards.
The cases in this short textbook are rigorously developed using two models. The Developed Case model features a step-by-step format that highlights the decisions made at each step. The Case Reflection model features a short narrative, followed by analysis of how the management and outcome might have been improved. Cases are referenced with current articles in support of particular strategies. Each case includes a boxed Key Points section and self-assessment questions.
