Review quote

The text is clearly presented and illustrated by useful tables and figures. A 'must' for surgical students following surgical basic training. This volume is also of interest to students in general, particularly those who have problem-based learning curricula.British Journal of SurgeryIt would be an invaluable reference to be kept in an emergency department and would also be suitable for students and junior residents. I would recommend it for all junior surgical registrars and for residents and students comtemplating a surgical career.Australian & New Zealand Journal of Surgeryshow more
