Lazar J. Greenfield, Michael W. Mulholland
Lippincott Williams & Wilkins, 1997 - Medical - 835 pages
This condensed version of the classic textbook, Surgery: Scientific Principles and Practice, Second Edition, provides students and surgeons with an easily accessible compendium of essential information. It is the ideal guide for students in six-to-eight-week surgical rotations and an excellent resource for surgical residents and surgeons needing a concise and portable reference. The first part of the book, Scientific Principles, presents clinically relevant scientific information, and includes chapters on cytokines, human gene therapy, and the immunobiology of organ transplants. The second part, Surgical Practice, consists of 20 sections devoted to specific organ systems, plus a section on pediatric surgery. Each section provides the information the surgeon needs on anatomy and physiology and describes surgical procedures for specific diseases.
