This third edition has been fully revised and updated to provide students with the latest information to help them prepare for surgical examinations.
Presented in question and answer format, the book consists of fifty long and short clinical cases. Each case begins with an overview, a checklist for history and physical examination, and diagnostic points. Commonly asked exam questions follow, reviewing the relevant anatomy, physiology, investigations, differential diagnosis, updated staging, and management techniques.
Discussion on staging corresponds with the American Joint Cancer Committee (AJCC) 8th edition cancer staging system.
Separate chapters cover definitions of key terminologies, and radiology and imaging. The book concludes with important tables and charts for trauma, neck, breast, abdomen, burns and more.
This comprehensive revision reference features more than 200 drawings, flowcharts and clinical photographs, many of them new to this edition.
