With its clear ‘elective’ and ’emergency’ structure and its question-and-answer format, it offers both a comprehensive overview of general surgical training and evidence-based discussions of specific subspecialties.
Oxford Case Histories in General Surgery covers upper gastrointestinal/HPB, colorectal, breast, endocrine and emergency surgery. Each section includes clinically relevant images and detailed descriptions of the radiological and pathological features. The individual case histories outline the key essentials for investigation, diagnosis and management in a wide variety of clinical scenarios.

Surgical Management of Aortic Pathology
This book follows the concept of perceiving the entire aorta as one functional organ assuming that all individual pathologies and local interventional procedures affect the up- and downstream segments with consequences for complications and disease progression. Thus any preventive or surgical strategy must recognize the aortic disease in its entirety.
The book intends to cover the full spectrum of aortic pathologies, mechanisms and functional interplay. The latest available diagnostic tools and options for surgical treatment are presented by the foremost experts in their field in state-of-the-art reviews. The reader is provided with the most current and comprehensive insight into all fundamental and clinical aspects of aortic disease. All chapters are carefully complemented with figures and illustrations.
Spinal Tumor Surgery: A Case-Based Approach
This practical, step-wise text covers the surgical approaches, resection strategies and reconstruction techniques used for each type of presenting tumor of the spine. Demonstrating the variety of anterior, posterior and intradural approaches and stabilization techniques, and spanning from pathologies of the craniocervical region to sacral and intradural pathologies, each chapter is generously illustrated with figures, radiographs and intraoperative photos. The chapters themselves follow a consistent and user-friendly format: the anatomy and biomechanics of a specific region, patient evaluation, essential oncologic principles, the decision-making process, and technical steps of surgery. A representative case illustration is provided at the conclusion of each chapter, exemplifying pertinent concepts described. Additionally, video segments accompany selected chapters, providing real-time illustration of surgical techniques.
Technical and in-depth, yet highly accessible, Spinal Tumor Surgery: A Case-Based Approach is an essential resource for orthopedic spine surgeons, neurosurgeons, and surgical oncologists operating on tumors of the spine.
Clinical Algorithms in General Surgery: A Practical Guide
As the field of general surgery continues to expand, the diagnostic and therapeutic pathways are becoming more complex. The diagnostic modalities available to the clinician can be both very helpful but also overwhelming considering the findings can often determine the scope of treatment for a patient.
This text will take the major pathologies of the systems commonly studied in general surgery and present them in a unique format based upon algorithms. The algorithms will begin with the clinical presentation of the patient, work its way through the various diagnostic modalities available to the surgeon, and finally allow the physician to make a decision regarding treatment options based upon various patterns in the algorithms.
This text will become a very useful resources for surgeons as it allows complex clinical pathways to be conveniently organized in logical algorithms. It will become a concise yet comprehensive manual to assist in clinical decision making. All algorithms will be reviewed by experts in their field and include the most up-to-date clinical and evidence-based information.
