Book description

As surgical specialization becomes more focused, there is a growing lack of expertise amongst surgeons in life-preserving management of severely injured patients. This comprehensively updated second edition provides an in-depth, visual guide to both commonly and uncommonly performed trauma procedures. It includes over 900 high-quality color photographs and illustrations of step-by-step procedures on fresh, perfused and ventilated cadavers. Practical surgical anatomy, procedural sequencing, and common technical pitfalls are all clearly outlined. A number of new techniques have been introduced since the first edition, from REBOA (resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aortic), to ribplating for flail chest and skin grafting. Informed by the editors' experience in some of the busiest trauma centres in the world, the text has been updated throughout and includes additional photographs. This Atlas is an essential resource for trainee and operating trauma surgeons, and general surgeons distant from academic centres, as well as emergency medicine and critical care personnel.

Reviews

'It was fantastic. Images were so helpful. We found this more useful than videos.'

Dr Joseph Galante - UC Davis Department of Surgery

‘The atlas is organized according to anatomic regions. Clinical challenges, operative approaches, and relevant anatomy are presented in a sequential, easy-to-understand fashion. The text is organized into bullet points, which facilitates rapid absorption of important lessons. Most important are the high-quality color photographs and multicolor illustrations based on performance of procedures using fresh, perfused, and ventilated human cadavers at the University of Southern California Fresh Tissue Dissection Lab, one of the important facilities of its kind in the world. The overall approach to the material is similar to that of the first edition … This is a worthy update of the original edition. The number and quality of illustrations and the concise text are much improved.’
