Suturing skills are often taken for granted, but a surgeon has to be taught them in just the same way as learning the preceding surgical techniques. Insufficient attention is paid to the difficulty and importance of these skills, and to describe endosuturing as an art is no misnomer. This book discusses the advantages, disadvantages, indications and methodology of applying suturing techniques. It provides easy-to-follow step-by-step details for various types of endosuturing and knotting and has a superb collection of line drawings. Additional value is given to the book by the operative photographs describing endosuturing during a difficult laparoscopic cholecystectomy. In full colour throughout, and with a free interactive CD Rom, this book is an excellent pocket manual for surgeons in training.
