Chassin’s Operative Strategy in General Surgery 5th Edition
This fifth edition of Chassin’s Operative Strategy in General Surgery is a major revision that strives to remain faithful to the purpose and tone of Dr. Chassin’s original text. This unique textbook provides an emphasis on surgical strategy that is unmatched by other textbooks of surgical technique. The text explains the conceptual basis of each operation, outlines strategies to avoid common pitfalls, and carefully describes and beautifully illustrates the technical steps of each operation. The fifth edition preserves the unique qualities of its previous edition while providing a comprehensive update.
This updated volume also features a vast amount of richly detailed artwork and operative photographs, which help depict operative techniques step-by-step. No other text so successfully combines operative technique with the concept of strategy – that is, key governing principles that dictate safe surgery and avoidance of complications. There are books of technique, there are books about complications, and there are books about the rationale involved in the treatment of various kinds of surgical pathology. Chassin’s combines all three.
Split Cord Malformations

- Clear depiction of the types of Split cord malformations.
- Various classification systems of SCM are covered along with their surgical implications.
- Dorsoventral spur, its pathogenesis, and treatment nuances are discussed in detail as it is a special condition needing special care to prevent spinal cord damage.
- Management of SCM type I and type II needs specific attention as they are of different nature. The explanations offered in the book cover both adequately.
