Patients over the age of 65 account for a high proportion of admissions to surgical units and the number is increasing every year. This volume constitutes a collaborative venture in the field of gerontology. It provides a multidisciplinary approach to the day to day management and clinical care of ageing patients needing surgery. Future trends, research prospects and ethical implications are discussed as well as the specific needs and special requirements of the elderly surgical patient. Each chapter covers a separate surgical speciality and includes topics ranging from statistics and diagnosis, through to pain relief and rehabilitation.
