This highly respected, popular guide (previously Dunn’s Surgical Diagnosis and Management) is perfect for on-the-ward reference. This 4th edition has been fully updated. It is particularly valued for its consistent structure in conveying practical information. It also provides a comprehensive foundation for those contemplating a surgical career.
It is divided into two parts. Part one (Chapters 1-2) introduces general surgical assessment, ward care, and the principles of surgical practice. Part two (Chapters 3-15) deals with specific surgical conditions and for each includes:
- A brief description of the condition, to enable clinical understanding
- the typical 'pattern' of symptoms and signs at presentation
- the steps needed to prove the diagnosis
- the general, operative and post operative management
This new 4th edition will prove to be invaluable for the busy junior surgical trainee and clinical medical student.
