had a dream. My dream was to assemble the current and future leaders in surgery and ask them to develop an evidence-based surgical textbook that would provide the reader with the most up-to-date and relevant information on which to base decisions in modern surgical practice. In other words, the dream was to create the best, most comprehensive textbook of surgery. Fortunately, I met Laura Gillan of Springer-Verlag New York, who had a similar dream. As our editor, she has provided the foundation and structure for this dream. She has made this dream a reality. Because surgery is a highly specialized and diverse discipline with significant complexity, I also needed a commitment from outstanding sur geons to serve as coeditors. I was fortunate to have a diverse group of exceptional, young-in-spirit, en ergetic, cutting-edge, surgical investigators share in this project, and I wish to thank them for their in valuable contribution to this undertaking. The Editorial Board, including Randy Bollinger, Fred Chang, Steve Lowry, Sean Mulvihill, Harvey Pass, and Robert Thompson, met for the first time at the Ameri can College of Surgeons meeting in Chicago in October 1997 (Fig. 1). There, this book was conceived. Each of us developed the plan and content for his specific surgical discipline. The common thread is that all decisions and recommendations are based on the best available evidence and that the reader can clearly see the evidence in our "E-tables" (evidence-based tables) specifically marked for the reader's reference.

Highly Commended, BMA Medical Book Awards 2014 The seventh edition of the acclaimed text Operative Pediatric Surgery continues to provide a unique level of comprehensive detail on the full range of surgically treatable conditions presented in neonate and childhood as well as in utero. With an international list of authors, the chapters have been updated and complemented by the high-quality artwork that has established this operative guide as the standard reference for the pediatric surgeon. This new edition retains the successful format of previous editions. It first highlights the initial principles and justification for the procedure. Next, the book outlines preoperative investigations and preparation. This is followed by the operative procedure itself and postoperative management. New chapters have been added to this edition that cover the latest techniques such as minimal invasive surgery, robotic surgery, and single orifice laparoscopic surgery. The chapters are arranged in eight sections, with each section emphasizing the overall management of patients. Tricks of the trade of individual authors are included, as well as discussions of technical and clinical judgment.

This text is a fully updated and revised third edition of a highly successful text. The format of this text is unique and has been very successful. A total of 286 short chapters organized into 24 Sections provide operative dictation templates for all of the common and the vast majority of the uncommon and even rare operations performed by general and vascular surgeons. Each chapter also provides a succinct synopsis of the operation through bullet-ed lists which include Indications, Essential Steps, Note these Variations, and Complications. The book thus serves two purposes: these operative dictation templates can be used verbatim when dictating the operative note for a procedure; and the book provides ready reference to the trainee going into the operating room to do the procedure for the first time, or to someone preparing for their Board examinations. Space for notes allows surgeons to personalize the book and turn it into a resource unique to their situation. Fully updated and expanded, Operative Dictations in General and Vascular Surgery, Third Edition includes significant additions that include flexible endoscopic procedures (now recognized as a core part of general surgery training and practice), single incision laparoscopic cholecystectomy, and robotic approaches to the rectum. The endovascular procedures have been significantly expanded, as have the approaches to venous disease and to A-V fistula creation. Operative Dictations in General and Vascular Surgery, Third Edition is intended for practicing surgeons, who may modify each template to reflect their own individual practice. It also serves as a concise reminder of essential steps in those operations that may be only rarely performed.

This book established itself in its first edition as the definitive 'one-stop-shop' revision aid; the only one available to encompass all elements of the MRCOG Part 2 examination in a single volume. Now incorporating practice EMQs as well as the standard question types, this second edition will ensure that it retains its place on the 'must-have' list for every candidate preparing for this exam. Concentrating on testing the candidate's theoretical and practical knowledge as recommended in the current MRCOG syllabus, the book tests the trainee with questions in obstetrics and gynaecology and those aspects of medicine, surgery and paediatrics relevant to the practice of both. The book is divided into four key parts, one for each style of question, each of which opens with an introductory section on how to approach the exam and, crucially, how to fail it. # Part 1 provides a series of short answer practice papers. Common mistakes are highlighted as well as a list of key points required to get full marks. A sample answer is given for each question # Part 2 contains a mock paper for the MCQ part of the exam, containing 225 questions with answers and helpful annotations # Part 3 introduces the EMQ, giving the reader 40 questions in the style of the examination, together with answers and explanatory notes # Part 4 is devoted to the OSCE, with descriptions of 20 sample stations assessing different aspects of clinical practice, advice on how to tackle these, and suggested marking schemes. Throughout, questions have been designed to test factual knowledge and understanding, problem-solving ability, and clinical and communication skills.
