General surgery

The fifth edition of 'Rob & Smith's Operative Surgery: Vascular Surgery' gives vascular surgeons a thoroughly modern presentation of all the operative procedures they were likely to perform. This concise version - reproducing a selection of those procedures most commonly undertaken - shares many features of that volume: high-quality medical illustrations; indications and technical analysis for each operation; attention to potential pitfalls and risks; summarized details of post-operative complications.The chapters include detailed descriptions of the surgical exposure of blood vessels, the techniques of arterial suture and anastomosis, angiography and intra-operative angiography and the intra-operative use of ultrasound. The main bulk of the book explores in detail the common specific vascular operations including carotid endarterectomy, aorto-iliac endarterectomy and bypass grafting, femoropopliteal bypass, aneurysm resection, and the management of vascular injuries and amputations. The last section relates to the treatment of venous disease, with particular emphasis on operations for varicose veins.It intentionally does not include those procedures routinely referred to specialist vascular centres; the focus, instead, being defined by the practice of general surgeons who may perform only a limited variety of vascular work and those operations which trainees on vascular surgery rotations can expect to encounter.
