The Mallila/ qf Gyn('c%Ric SurRery is a comprehensive guide for operaยญ tive decision-making and technique in female pelvic surgery. For a wide array of problems requiring surgical intervention, this volume examines the anatomy, preoperative evaluation, surgical strategy, details of techยญ nique, postoperative management, and anticipated results. The manageยญ ment of operative complications and injuries to bowel, urinary system, and pelvic vessels is discussed. This volume is divided into three sections: ambulatory, vaginal, and abdominal surgery. The ambulatory section will be particularly useful to the family physician. The abdominal section explains complication manยญ agement for the gynecologist whose surgical background may not include gastrointestinal or urinary tract surgery.. The section on ovarian surgery contains additional data for the general surgeon who may encounter unexpected ovarian lesions. Although the book should be most useful to gynecologic residents-in-training and practicing gynecologists, it will also be of use to general surgeons who perform gynecologic operations and to all physicians who perform ambulatory gynecologic procedures. The operative techniques depicted are currently used procedures based on the newer concepts of wound healing and suturing, utilizing modยญ ern surgical instrumentation. When several techniques are available, the author's personal preference is described. This book, which was produced by the project manager system, repยญ resents the efforts of 21 persons in three cities. Christine G. Williamson managed the project with drive, understanding, and skill. She was responsiยญ ble also for coordinating information retrieval, organizing the chapters, and editing the text
