A short case is a clinical case which does not require details of patient history or physical examination to make a clinical diagnosis. Practical Surgery Short Clinical Cases is the third edition of this highly illustrated question-and-answer guide to a range of cases. This book is excellent exam preparation for postgraduate medical students taking surgical examinations.
This revised and updated edition is comprised of 13 chapters, covering 95 specific short cases. The chapters cover swellings, ulcers, fistulas, sinuses, bleeding and miscellaneous cases. A new chapter on non-clinical practical examination has been added to this edition.
Each clinical case is presented in a systematic format, beginning with clinical diagnosis, potential viva-voce questions and answers, followed by discussion on the case including its pathology, clinical features, investigations, complications and treatment modalities.
Practical Surgery Short Clinical Cases includes 394 full colour illustrations and images, enhancing each of the 95 cases featured and providing excellent revision material for MBBS and MS (General Surgery) students.
