Surgical cases explained!

Clinical Integration: Surgery helps medical students and junior doctors link basic medical science with clinical context and build an appreciation of how pathophysiology manifests as recognisable clues.

The book shows readers the logical connections between patient history, examination findings, investigation results, management rationale and their underlying mechanisms. Readers learn to understand the “why and how” behind the diagnosis, investigation and management of common clinical problems.

The book takes a system-based approach to cover common surgical cases, from aortic stenosis to varicose veins, via diverticulitis and pressure ulcers.

Every case uses a consistent format to:
  • highlight the key elements of the history, examination and investigations
  • ­offer a guide to management options
  • ­provide rapid access to important facts
