A Synopsis of Regional Anatomy offers concise and essential knowledge on the human anatomy. Unlike other textbooks on anatomy, this book is arranged in regions rather than in systems. As such, it is more consistent with the prevailing approaches to clinical examination and regional surgery as well as directing attention towards the principles of body function and organization. It is divided into eight regions that can be studied either collectively or in isolation. Factual information is presented for typical areas defined by fascial compartments; muscles are described in functional groups; blood vessels, lymphatic vessels, and nerves of the area are discussed; and regional landmarks, their boundaries, and contents important in clinical examination are explained. Written in a format that encourages self-directed learning, this book will be a valuable reference for self-study and also as a guide for dissection in the laboratory.
