Churchill's pocketbooks


This pocket-sized book provides a concise and didactic account of the essential features of all common surgical disorders for medical students and junior doctors. Raferty (surgery, Sheffield Kidney Institute and U. of Sheffield, UK) and Delbridge (renal transplantation, Sheffield Kidney Institute, UK) explain basic principles and give information on etiology, diagnosis, and management, and preoperative and postoperative care. They cover the field of general surgery as well as specialties including neurosurgery, and plastic and pediatric surgery. If used with Churchill's Pocketbook of Differential Diagnosis, it can serve as a review text by postgraduates for the MRCS. Chapters on shock and trauma, the breast, endocrine, and transplantation have been revised.
