About this book

All European countries, including those that have recently joined the European Union or are candidates for membership, currently show a clear trend towards an increasing number of accidental injuries. This holds true for a range of injuries, including accidents among the elderly, sports injuries, and trauma due to traffic accidents. The increase in the number of injuries is accompanied by rising expectations among patients, who anticipate good functional results even after serious injuries. Despite these developments, trauma surgery is not yet established as an independent field in all European countries. Against this background, there is a clear need for a book that covers the state of the art in trauma surgery. This volume, which focuses on head, thoracic, abdominal, and vascular injuries, is intended to help to meet this need. It will also serve to harmonize the practice of trauma surgery within the European Union and to prepare for the UEMS EBSQ trauma surgery.

Reviews

From the reviews:

“This is the first of three volumes in the European Manual of Medicine series intended to provide up-to-date information on trauma for both clinicians in training and senior practitioners. … General and trauma surgeons needing an outline of the general approach to surgical trauma care or preparing for standardized examinations are an appropriate audience for this work drawn from North American and European specialists. … This book is a good reflection of contemporary care which may be used by practicing surgeons.” (David J. Dries, Doody’s Review Service, August, 2011)
