This book does not attempt to rival major surgical textbooks, but draws together a collection of basic information in a convenient format. It provides a transition in knowledge between the basic sciences and clinical practice. Emphasis is placed on the general principles of surgery rather than on management of specific conditions and thus this title complements the standard clinical surgical textbooks.
