Aligned to the topics within the Intercollegiate Surgical Programme (ISCP) curriculum, this case-based volume covers the common clinical presentations encountered across general surgery. With its clear 'elective' and 'emergency' structure and its question-and-answer format, it offers both a comprehensive overview of general surgical training and evidence-based discussions of specific subspecialties. Oxford Case Histories in General Surgery covers upper gastrointestinal/HPB, colorectal, breast, endocrine and emergency surgery. Each section includes clinically relevant images and detailed descriptions of the radiological and pathological features. The individual case histories outline the key essentials for investigation, diagnosis and management in a wide variety of clinical scenarios. As a part of the Oxford Case Histories series, this book is an important educational tool for those embarking on surgical rotations at final year undergraduate and postgraduate foundation level. It is also an essential reference for the surgical care practitioner and early years core surgical trainee.
