This boxed set of all eight volumes of the Companion to Specialist Surgical Practice series provides surgeons in higher training and those wanting an update with a practical reference source of the most current information on recent developments, the latest management issues and operative procedures in each of the major sub-specialties. The series is thoroughly referenced and supported by evidence-based data. In order to meet the increasing interest in Evidence-Based Medicine the authors have cited wherever available the meta-analysis of randomised controlled trials, systematic literature reviews and observational studies and have identified key references within the text that support evidence-based practice. Test sections and references are highlighted using a 'scalpel code' to indicate the presence of evidence for the interventional procedures under discussion.
Includes colour photographs of operative procedures, investigations and clinical signs throughout the text.
Comprehensively updated with particular reference to the evidence-based content of each chapter.
A stylish new text design enhances the presentation of the text throughout the series.
A templated approach is used across the series to provide up-to-date information in a way that will be consistent and familiar to the reader.
Each volume gives a current and concise summary of the key topics within each major surgical sub-specialty.
Each volume highlights evidence-based practice both in the text and by also identifying the key papers in the extensive list of references at the end of every chapter.
