Description of this Book

This handbook summarises currently available surgical guidelines and clearly presents them in one concise reference source. Further enhanced with diagrams, algorithms, audit tools and user-friendly statistics, it helps to make surgical practice a well-informed and enjoyable learning experience. The focus of the book is on UK and European guidelines but it also includes US guidelines where relevant. Although there are various official web sites and printed guidelines, such as the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN) and the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), available for the surgical sub-specialties, there is currently no central place for these to be accessed. This book provides such a reference for those embarking on their surgical training, yet is also valuable as an aide-memoire for more senior surgical staff. Current Surgical Guidelines covers the main conditions requiring surgery, such as breast cancer, foreign body ingestion, peptic ulcers, and vascular diseases, focusing on the evidence and selection criteria which determine the best action to take. Recommendations have been graded according to relevant current guidelines and all benefits/risk decision recommendations have been supported by easy-to-digest facts and figures.
