About this book

Emergent general surgical diseases are the most frequent causes of in-hospital deaths and are the most costly diseases to treat. The purpose of this book is to provide clinicians with an understanding of their roles and that of other disciplines for the treatment of  acute and emergent surgical diseases.  It is also designed to give a clear pathway for using multiple disciplines to manage these diseases.  The text details over 20 problems routinely seen in clinical practice and approaches the disease from the perspective of experts within the different specialties. It provides a comprehensive, evidenced-based overview and  the most up-to-date technology available in clinical practice. An emphasis on new, less invasive techniques that may have a broader range of indications in the future is also included. Ultimately the reader will have a better understanding of these acute problems, the other specialties they work with, and when to integrate these other specialties when they encounter these urgent clinical scenarios.

Reviews

“Although the book is intended for residents and practitioners, it could be used by students. It targets multiple specialties of surgery, gastroenterology, interventional radiology, radiology, obstetrics, endocrinology, internal medicine, and pulmonary critical care. … The strength of this well‐written book lies in its coverage of a broad array of acute surgical problems in a concise yet informative manner.” (Vincent T Wu, Doody's Book Reviews, 27 September, 2019)
