About the Book

Snippets in Surgery is a useful handbook for house officers and junior surgical trainees. There are two volumes. Volume 1 deals with important aspects of acute and essential surgery and Volume 2 with fundamental management of common malignancies. Volume 1 discusses everyday problems that a trainee will encounter whilst working in surgery. It is a concise compilation and succinct arrangement of current knowledge and significant management principles. The topics are discussed as a consultant would, in a ward round. The book is supported by relevant illustrations that enhance clarity and understanding. Key information, historical background and publications are lucidly emphasised. The book is laid out in an easy-to-read format and will serve as a quick guide to managing surgical patients who are admitted acutely. It will also assist as a valuable revision guide for exams and give practical tips and ideas to the trainee for management and future growth. Volume 1 also has MCQs based on applied clinical cases that will help greatly with self-assessment and consolidate learning.
