Synopsis

Clinical Surgery by Alfred Cuschieri

Blackwell's Clinical Surgery has established itself as an excellent indispensable resource for undergraduate medical students and house officers. The first edition was Awarded 1997 BMA Certificate of Commendation. Written by an outstanding team of editors and expert contirbutors, the new updaetd and revised edition has been designed as a complete learning guide. Unlike competing titles, Clinical Surgery covers the following all in one book: symptoms and signs of surgical disease; diagnosis and investigations; and treatment and procedures. The book is divided into five sections: Clinical Skills and Investigations; Perioperative Care; The Management Of Acute Surgical Illness; Trauma General Surgery; and Specialist Surgery.The new edition features: revised chapters with updated and refreshed material, written in a systematic format to aid learning and enhance understanding; 15 new chapters with more information providing you with everything you need to know; 'at a Glance' boxes for the most common surgical conditions and common clinical presentations; 'Must Know/ Must Do' boxes - to aid learning and revision through self-assessment; Clinically orientated information on practical procedures; evidence based medicine references for further reading and research; and excellent full colour illustrations and a new attractive and easy to use format. The second edition of Clinical Surgery is perfect for undergraduate and junior doctors alike as well as other health professionals who need a comprehensive account of surgery in all the major medical specialities. With a strong emphasis on clinical practice and the necessary knowledge and skills, this is a must-buy for anyone going on a surgical rotation. Clinical Surgery is intended to teach you everything you need to know about surgery at the start of your career. Pre-publication quotes I do not think it is an understatement to say that it is a revolutionary book. It is obviously written with integrated courses very much in mind and manages to integrate the basic sciences with clinical information very well...Maybe above all things, this is a very practically orientated book and really attempts to mould the medical student in to a very good house officer. - SHO, Leeds.

Reviews

"I suspect that it will become a standard text for medical students and junior doctors alike" British Journal of Surgery 1997"A comprehensive surgical textbook, with lots of colour photos and diagrams, nicely laid out with excellent at a glance boxes." Sphincter, Liverpool Medical School Gazette"This textbook is well written, logical and ordered, but most of all at GBP30 is a bargain especially as this text will last the student for many years, well beyond their housejobs and be of benefit in manging patients on the wards... (it) should be considered as one of the key undergraduate surgical texts." Southampton Health Journal 1997"This book is quite simply a pleasure to own" St. Thomas
Gazette 1996

Well written, well presented and laid out, plenty of pictures. I actually looked forward to reading it
!'House Officer, Cambridge 'I think Clinical Surgery is a fantastic book! It's packed full of features to make it easier to learn from. The use of tables and diagrams compliments the extremely well-written text, making for a thorough, friendly guide to clinical surgery. The variety of delivery methods makes the book suitable as a quick reference, a revision aid or as a detailed textbook, and it fulfils all three roles excellently'5th Year, Aberdeen 'I think it is a well-balanced book which would appeal to both clinical medical students and junior doctors. It manages to span the spectrum of surgical knowledge required both pre- and post-graduation. I like the broad range of topics covered.5th Year, Nottingham 'It is great. Informative, broad yet detailed and with great pictures...what more could a young surgeon want.'House Officer Oxford '
