9781853159855: Eponyms in Surgery and Anatomy of the Liver, Bile Ducts and Pancreas

For surgeons, physicians, and anatomists involved in the management and study of disorders of the liver, bile ducts and pancreas, eponyms are part of everyday communication. They help to describe anatomical features, operative procedures, surgical instruments, and diseases. Unfortunately, many have become distorted or are inaccurately applied. Few of us understand their derivation or the remarkable people and controversies behind them.

This book explores the origins of seventy eponyms in the field of hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery and anatomy. Each section is deliberately short and intended for quick reference, providing accurate information about the origin of the eponym and the figure behind it.

Meticulously researched, and beautifully illustrated with more than 150 photographs, Eponyms in Surgery and Anatomy of the Liver, Bile Ducts and Pancreas is aimed at surgeons, physicians and anatomists, and is sure to enrich the reader's historical perspective of this fascinating branch of surgery and anatomy.

Review:

This book is recommended for its scholarship and the liberal inclusion of appropriate illustrations that only add to its palatability. Anatomists, surgeons, and medical historians will find the book both interesting and informative.
Clinical Anatomy 23:319 (2010)

This is an excellent little book written by Professor Stringer. ... well researched summary of 'Eponyms' related to the anatomy and surgery of the liver, bile ducts and pancreas. The book is an easy read ... liberally illustrated throughout with photographs ... and there are a number of amusing anecdotes.

Useful for anyone interested in the history of medicine. However, I would also recommend this book to students as the little piece of anatomy or surgery at the beginning of each section is of educational value.

An excellent read for one's leisure time or when travelling for the student of medicine, the anatomist, the general physician, the general surgeon or the hepatobiliary specialist. I enjoyed the book immensely and can recommend it thoroughly.
―Professor Roy Spence, Ulster Medical Journal, 2010; 79: 106-8

This delightful book is packed with interesting anecdotes. The illustrations are sharp and in full colour.

This book will be enjoyed for interesting vignettes discovered when browsing during occasional moments of enforced inactivity; it could help pass the time on a journey or entertain during convalescence.

Keep it away from examiners though, as it would be all too easy to encourage discussion of the interesting lives and neglect the important surgical principles of the people remembered by their eponymous fame.
―Colin Johnson, Annals of the Royal College of Surgeons of England, 2011; 93: 88-92
