Review:

"Overall an excellent book. This is a very well written book on an interesting aspect of surgery that is still 'in its infancy'. It has a good structure and information level. All aspects are all well-covered with good background information and coverage of all aspects of its treatment (including non-surgical). Easy to read for coverage and good reference book." BMA Awards 2007
