Current Surgical Diagnosis & Treatment covers over 1,000 diseases and disorders managed by surgeons. It encompasses general surgery and the surgical subspecialties and emphasizes quick recall of major diagnostic features and succinct descriptions of disease processes. This major revision and updating features a new chapter on "The Metabolic & Neuroendocrine Responses to Trauma & Operations," the latest on minimally invasive surgical techniques, and particularly extensive changes to chapters on oncology, colon and rectal surgery, plastic surgery, vascular surgery, and cardiothoracic surgery.
