Description

The thoroughly updated New Edition of this best-selling resource uses an algorithmic approach to facilitate the evaluation and management of 162 common surgical problems. Clear algorithms and concise accompanying explanations offer a quick and efficient way to review the key issues and make effective clinical decisions. 34 of the topics in this 5th Edition are either entirely new or have been completely rewritten, to reflect the latest developments in the field.

Key Features
