Sugarbaker's Adult Chest Surgery is a thorough, hands-on guide to the practice of general thoracic surgery. The book covers the entire range of thoracic surgical techniques and management, along with crucial preoperative evaluation, staging, and postoperative strategies. Broad in scope and straightforward in style and presentation, this classic is an outstanding reference for any clinician in need of a comprehensive description of the clinical nature of general thoracic surgery.
The focus of this third edition is on providing cutting-edge and up-to-date procedural and clinical management instructions in a field that is constantly changing. The previous edition highlighted minimally invasive, endoscopic, and robotic techniques, and this new edition will even further emphasize these developing technologies. More than 600 full color illustrations, drawn specifically for this book, enhance the text.
Essential for residents preparing for a case, surgeons seeking management tips, and surgeons preparing for board recertification, Sugarbaker's Adult Chest Surgery features a logical organization based on anatomy, and each section has an overview chapter summarizing the relevant anatomy, pathophysiology, and diagnostic and procedural options. Operations and diagnostic procedures are highlighted throughout the book in succinct, illustrated technique chapters.
