About this book

Written by leaders in the field, Common Surgical Diseases: An Algorithmic Approach to Problem Solving, provides surgical residents and house staff with a current, concise and algorithmic approach to frequently encountered clinical challenges. Over 100 chapters detail every common surgical disease in the form of a succinct text coupled with a step-by-step algorithm. Each chapter walks the reader through the evaluation, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of the most common surgical problems.

Thoroughly updated and revised, the second edition includes new chapters in trauma, abdominal surgery, and critical care. Among the new chapters, readers will find: traumatic hematuria, knee dislocation, hip fractures, extremity fractures, indications for renal and liver transplantation, management of cardiac arrhythmias, ventilator management, hypoxia and pulmonary embolism, and the hypertensive postoperative patient.

Following the success of the first edition, this revision provides an excellent quick reference and is an absolute essential for practicing surgeons, surgical house staff, and for medical students in their surgical clerkship.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This book provides readers with an algorithmic approach to diagnosing and managing common surgical diseases … . The intended audience includes residents, students, and young surgeons … . nonsurgical specialists may use the book to guide diagnostic work-up and referral. … it seems best suited for residents and young surgeons to use as a starting point for decision making and understanding of management decisions. … a must-have for new residents managing patients in the perioperative setting." (Eanas S. Yassa, Doody’s Review Service, July, 2008)
