Illustrative Handbook of General Surgery (January 2010 Edition)

With the large number of surgical atlases in the market focusing on a variety of surgical procedures, it is almost impossible to find an area that is not comprehensively illustrated. However, almost all of these atlases are very large and serve to be ‘library reference’ books, which are commonly displayed in the office and utilized in that manner. There is no atlas which is easily transportable, yet one would imagine that every medical student and resident would potentially want a copy of such a title to carry on them at all times.
The book aims to cover all facets of general surgery and each chapter has five to ten photographs illustrating the basic anatomical context, as well as the various techniques specific to the operation. Each chapter author provides a brief narrative describing what is going on during the operation, and also outlines common pitfalls and personal suggestions.

Dermatology in Clinical Practice

Dermatology is a discipline based around core diagnostic skills and innovative treatment and management protocols. Nevertheless, the clinical dermatologist is not the only physician that observes and treats conditions of the skin. Family medicine/primary care physicians, emergency room staff and other first-line medical personel all need to have a good grounding in recognizing and managing skin disease.
This book gives an insight into the common cutaneous disorders, discussing the treatment in detail, and giving a number of treatment options where required. More unusual diseases and syndromes are only mentioned where necessary. The first line physician’s needs are kept in mind while writing each chapter, e.g. the chapter on cutaneous signs of systemic disease is described in more detail in comparison to other short books on dermatology, because physicians in the front line of patient management regularly deal with a vast number of medical problems.
Primary care physicians tend to see patients from all over the globe and thus tropical skin diseases are described in detail. Infectious skin diseases can be perceived as an enigma in industrialized countries, especially for young doctors, and this book helps to demystify the diagnosis and management of these diseases.
The book is short, clear and easy to read, with an emphasis on practical relevant information. It has been designed expressly to assist primary care physicians, residents and fellows in dermatology, and emergency medicine and other first line medical personnel.
