"Operative Strategy" is the advance plan that the surgeon develops to anticipate and avoid the technical pitfalls and danger points of an operation. The goal is to make each operation safe and free from complications. This book covers all operations in general surgery - the digestive tract, breast, abdominal wall, and selected head and neck and endocrine operations. After discussing the concept and operative strategy, Dr. Chassin presents a detailed description of each operation, copiously illustrated with the detailed, elegant drawings of Caspar Henselmann. An essential reference for all residents and practicing surgeons. "It should be readily available to medical residents and have a place in the library of every surgeon." - Rodney Maingot, Journal of the Royal Society of Medicine
