The series - "A Companion to Specialist Surgical Practice" - is designed to provide trainee surgeons in higher surgical training with an excellent learning and revision resource and busy practicing surgeons with a regular update in a particular sub-specialty interest. Produced to a very tight schedule, each volume in the series gives a current and succinct summary of all the key topics within the specialty and concentrates on recent developments. To meet the increasing interest in evidence-based medicine, authors have cited whenever available, the meta analysis of randomised controlled trials and identified key references within the text which support evidence-based practice. Other titles in the series are: "Core Topics In General and Emergency Surgery 2nd Edition" - Paterson-Brown, "Colorectal Surgery 2nd Edition" - Phillips, "Breast Surgery" - Farndon, "Endocrine Surgery" - Fardon. "Vascular and Endovascular Surgery" - Beard and Gaines, "Transplantation Surgery: Current Dilemmas 2nd Edition" - Forsythe, and "Upper Gastrointestinal Surgery 2nd Edition" - Griffin & Raimes.
