Back for a second edition, Current Surgical Guidelines has been fully updated to reflect changes in guidelines across the surgical sub-specialities since its first publication. Drawing together printed and digital guidelines from the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN), the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), and relevant US guidelines, this book acts as a valuable complete and comprehensive reference for those
embarking on their surgical training, revising for exams, or for senior staff as an aide-memoire.
Guidelines have been distilled into summary tables, and topics are formulated to answer most real-life clinical practice questions with contemporary facts and figures, decision recommendations, and treatment options. New chapters on hernias, skin malignancies, trauma, and medicolegal practice have been added to increase fresh challenges facing the contemporary surgical trainee.
