SUMMARY

Written by leaders in the field, Common Surgical Diseases: An Algorithmic Approach to Problem Solving, provides surgical residents and house staff with a current, concise and algorithmic approach to frequently encountered clinical challenges. Over 100 chapters detail every common surgical disease in the form of a succinct text coupled with a step-by-step algorithm. Each chapter walks the reader through the evaluation, diagnosis, treatment and follow-up of the most common surgical problems. Thoroughly updated and revised, the second edition includes new chapters in trauma, abdominal surgery, and critical care. Among the new chapters, readers will find: traumatic hematuria, knee dislocation, hip fractures, extremity fractures, indications for renal and liver transplantation, management of cardiac arrhythmias, ventilator management, hypoxia and pulmonary embolism, and the hypertensive postoperative patient. Following the success of the first edition, this revision provides an excellent quick reference and is an absolute essential for practicing surgeons, surgical house staff, and for medical students in their surgical clerkship
