The third edition of this highly-praised pocketbook provides a concise and didactic account of the essential features of the more common surgical disorders, at both a size and price to suit the pocket. The book covers basic principles, as well as providing essential information on aetiology, diagnosis and management, including pre-operative and postoperative care. The text covers the field of general surgery, but aims also to cover the basic needs of the undergraduate as far as the surgical specialities are concerned. The book is intended to fit easily in the white coat pocket and to be used on the wards. It will give the student some idea of history-taking, what physical signs to elicit, the differential diagnosis, what investigations to order and how to treat the patient. The text is illustrated with line drawings and imaging.
