Browse's Introduction to the Symptoms & Signs of Surgical Disease 4th Editionby Norman L. Browse, John Black, Kevin G. Burnand, William E.G. Thomas
The fourth edition of this essential textbook has been fully revised and updated to ensure it continues to meet the needs of all those learning the principles of surgical examination.
Together with Sir Norman Browse, the three new authors bring their specialised knowledge and experience to complement the book's much-praised clear, didactic approach and broad insight into the principles of surgery in general. The authors have updated all chapters in line with current developments, paying especial attention to 'Muscles, tendons, bones & joints', and to 'The breast', where the terms describing benign breast disease and the classification of cancer staging have been fully revised.
The book's numerous illustrations have also been fully revised, with many new photographs showing the more subtle surgical signs and demonstrating new approaches to surgical examination. In addition, there is greater emphasis on the doctor-patient relationship and patient confidentiality.
•Fully revised and updated, with chapters on 'Muscles, tendons, bones & joints' and 'The breast' completely re-worked
•Over 500 halftones, the majority of which are new to this edition
•New page design presents revised text and illustrations clearly and attractively to aid understanding and memory.
