Medical Management of the Surgical Patient : A Textbook of Perioperative Medicine
Now in its fifth edition, Medical Management of the Surgical Patient: A Textbook of Perioperative Medicine has been fully revised and updated and continues to provide an authoritative account of all aspects of perioperative care for surgical patients. Including recommended plans which aid accurate treatment of patients, it provides an evidence-based approach for consulting physicians to care for patients with underlying medical conditions that will affect their surgical management. The latest minimally invasive surgical techniques are included, with new chapters on thoracic aortic disease, reconstruction after cancer ablation, lung transplantation, esophagomyotomy, vasectomy and thyroid malignancies, amongst others. With detailed descriptions of nearly one-hundred operations, highlighting their usual course as well as their common complications, the book encourages learning from experience. This definitive account includes numerous contributions from leading experts at national centers of excellence. It will continue to serve as a significant reference work for internists, hospitalists, anesthesiologists and surgeons.

Review of the previous edition: 'Medical Management of the Surgical Patient is a text for diagnosticians who endeavour to serve in the perioperative period. Its clarity will prove valuable in the diagnosis and treatment of subtle conditions and disorders, along with potentially fatal conditions, such as postoperative acute myocardial infarction ... As a diagnostician, my most gratifying work has been consultation-liaison with my colleagues in the surgical specialties. To facilitate such consultation, I recommend that this text be available in all medical school libraries. I also recommend it for medical students and medical and surgical house officers. Medical Management of the Surgical Patient also belongs in the personal libraries of all clinicians who provide perioperative consultations.' Journal of the American Medical Association
