This textbook is an introduction and guide to undergraduate surgery. It has been a bestseller since its first edition in 2001. The philosophy of this book is to focus on the level of knowledge and the approach that would be expected of the better students reaching the end of their undergraduate training. Avoiding a book that is too cumbersome, we have tried to make this volume readable and enjoyable, using various techniques to help the reader remember key facts: the text has been deliberately written in a tutorial-like story format as opposed to a set of lists, since this makes it easier to understand and remember. In addition to general surgery, the book contains sections on trauma, orthopaedics, urology and ENT, making it the only comprehensive textbook for medical students wishing to learn top tips in surgery. Subjects that are poorly covered in other main texts — such as fluid balance management and minor surgical procedures — are dealt with in a tutorial fashion in this book, and there is a section on how to problem-solve even in the context of areas unknown to the student. This book is useful for medical students and also for junior doctors during their day-to-day working lives, as well as those coming up to postgraduate exams. Each chapter is written by an authoritative author, alongside the book editors, and they have ensured it remains in the spirit of the bestselling previous editions. Foreword Foreword (31 KB)

Seven Bypasses: Tenets and Techniques for Revascularization is the third book in a trilogy of bravura, technical nuance, and strategy by master neurosurgeon Michael Lawton. Like his first two books on aneurysms and AVMs, Seven Bypasses provides unparalleled firsthand insights and guidance on complex pathologies in vascular neurosurgery. The fundamentals of microsurgical anastomosis and the craft of bypass surgery are explored in depth with clinical pearls in every chapter. Lawton eloquently reveals the art of cerebral revascularization in exquisite, metaphorical detail. The surgeon performing bypass surgery is like an architect envisioning and building a beautiful structure. A bypass is designed to fit the patient's unique anatomy; blueprints designate anastomotic sites, connections, and conduits; the anastomoses are constructed; and the bypass is brought to life with pulsations, flow, and reperfusion. The book highlights Lawton's aesthetic, which has evolved from the common STA-MCA bypasses to IC-IC bypasses and elaborate arterial reconstructions. Key Highlights Stepwise discussion of the three anastomoses that form the building blocks of all bypasses: end-to-side, side-to-side, and end-to-end anastomoses Ten tenets delineate nuances of bypass: dexterity, preparing donors and recipients, establishing a working zone, temporary arterial occlusion, arteriotomy, suturing technique, tissue handling, knot tying, patency, and aneurysm occlusion Step-by-step guidance on the seven bypasses: EC-IC bypass, EC-IC interpositional bypass, arterial reimplantation, in-situ bypass, reanastomosis, IC-IC interpositional bypass, and combination bypass Strategies and algorithms for aneurysms organized by specific anatomical sites, including the MCA and the Sylvian cistern, ACA and the interhemispheric cistern, basilar artery and the basal cisterns, and PICA and the cisterna magna More than 1,500 radiographs, operative photographs, and exquisite illustrations drawn by artist Kenneth Xavier Probst elucidate anatomy, surgical principles, and clinical cases Dr. Lawton has bequeathed a remarkable treasure of knowledge to current and future generations of neurosurgeons and their patients. The Seven series is destined to be an enduring classic for residents, fellows, and neurosurgeons specializing in the treatment of cerebrovascular disease, and for those who believe that manual dexterity and technical skill still matter. Michael T. Lawton, MD, is Chairman, Department of Neurological Surgery; Professor of Neurological Surgery; President and Chief Executive Officer, Barrow Neurological Institute; Chief of Vascular and Skull Base Neurosurgery Programs; and Robert F. Spetzler Endowed Chair in Neurosciences, Barrow Neurological Institute and St. Joseph's Hospital and Medical Center, Phoenix, Arizona, USA. An award-winning international medical and scientific publisher, Thieme has demonstrated its commitment to the highest standard of quality in the state-of-the-art content and presentation of all its products. Founded in 1886, the Thieme name has become synonymous with high quality and excellence in online and print publishing.

Clinical Head and Neck Anatomy for Surgeons provides a refreshing new approach to the surgical anatomy of one of the most complex regions of the human body, the head and neck region. While similar books exist, few are written by surgeons for surgeons, detailing and illustrating the relevant surgical anatomy that needs to be mastered before operating in this fascinating area. The book provides an expert overview of the relevant anatomy encountered during surgery along with anatomical relationships and valuable tips. Each chapter describes in detail the anatomy of a key area or structure, accompanied by high-quality medical illustrations to aid in understanding. The book also includes text with essential details of both common and rare anatomical variants as well as potential danger areas and pitfalls, thus enabling surgeons to be fully prepared for most eventualities. Thoroughly illustrated with colour clinical photographs taken during surgery, the book displays the essential anatomy as encountered in the operating theatre. Line diagrams have been added where needed or when surgical photographs do not succinctly illustrate the point being made. A few radiological images have also been incorporated to complement the surgical anatomy. This book will provide you with trustworthy guidance to avoid hazards and assist with consistent outcomes for your patients.
