Summary and Info
The success of any operative procedure is dependent, in part, on the surgeon’s knowledge of anatomy. From the first incision to closure of the wound, it is essential to understand the fascial layers, blood supply, lymphatic drainage, nerves, muscles and organs relevant to the operative procedure. Surgical Anatomy and Technique: A Pocket Manual covers the anatomic regions pertinent to general surgeons and also describes the most commonly performed general surgical techniques. New to this edition are sections on abdominal aortic aneurysm, femoropopliteal bypass, carotid endarterectomy, hysterectomy and oopherectomy, and the entire book has been updated to reflect current surgical approaches. Medical students and residents will find this book to be an excellent way to prepare for a case, and more experienced surgeons will appreciate the anatomic review and contemporary approaches to common surgical problems.
