Breast Surgery

A Companion to Specialist Surgical Practice

J Michael Dixon, Matthew D. Barber

editore: ELSEVIER HEALTH SCIENCES

pagine: 290

Breast Surgery meets the needs of surgeons in higher training and practising consultants for a contemporary and evidence-based account of this sub-specialty that is relevant to their general surgical practice. It is a practical reference source incorporating the most current information on recent developments, management issues and operative procedures. The text is thoroughly referenced and supported by evidence-based recommendations wherever possible, distinguishing between strong evidence to support a conclusion, and evidence suggesting that a recommendation can be reached on the balance of probabilities. For this Sixth Edition the authorship team across the series has been expanded to include additional European and World experts, with an increased emphasis on global practice. Throughout all six volumes the contents have been extensively revised in line with recently published evidence. Detailed supportive key references are provided and are also included within the comprehensive list of references in the accompanying ebook. Links to recommended online videos have been added where appropriate. The Companion to Specialist Surgical Practice series provides a current and concise summary of the key topics within the major sub-specialties of general surgery. Each volume highlights evidence-based practice both in the text and within the extensive list of references at the end of every chapter. This new edition of Breast Surgery has a revised structure that better reflects the patient pathway through the breast service. New authors have brought new insights into rapidly evolving areas including more sophisticated breast assessment, the increasing options for breast conservation using oncoplastic techniques, and primary medical therapy. An emphasis on patient assessment and surgical techniques are the cornerstone of this revised edition.
