L. H. Blumgart, Yuman Fong
W.B. Saunders, 2000 - Medical - 2080 pages
The new 3rd Edition of the classic, definitive reference, Surgery of the Liver & Biliary Tract has been completely updated and many chapters have been consolidated for a streamlined approach, allowing the reader to find answers to clinical questions more easily. In addition, this text features many more step-by-step procedures, extensively illustrated with over 200 new operative line drawings. Many updates have been made to reflect the latest information in the field. There is expanded new coverage of the management of tumors of the liver and biliary tract, as well as of benign diseases of the liver and biliary tract; emerging techniques for non-surgical treatment of tumors; developments in liver transplantation; and greater emphasis on laparoscopic techniques. A CD-ROM that incorporates video sequences of operative techniques and a library of many of the line drawings in full color accompanies the text.
