Surgery is a constantly evolving specialty in medicine - research and technological advances have made surgical procedures safer and more effective and offer shorter recovery times.
Recent Advances in Surgery 36 is the latest volume in the annually-publishing series that reviews current topics in general surgery and its major subspecialties.
Divided into fifteen chapters, this volume includes updates on perioperative fluid therapy, local anaesthetics, hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery, intestinal failure, locally recurrent rectal cancer, maxillofacial trauma, cancer surgery, and a review of randomised controlled trials and meta-analyses in surgery.
