This book is designed specifically for candidates preparing for the MRCS Viva examination. The format of the exam has been used in the book's structure, with over 1000 questions to illustrate the key points of over 200 topics. The book has been divided into 6 main chapters corresponding to a viva 'station' in the exam. Each chapter begins with a check-list of the main topics and themes covered by the exam, and information is then subdivided logically within the chapter itself. Key 'pass-or-fail' concepts are covered, and in some cases, topics are covered in more detail than will be asked in the exam, so the candidate can be confident that they will be fully prepared.


1. Applied surgical anatomy (head and neck, thorax, abdomen and pelvis, limbs); 2. Operative surgery (head and neck, abdomen and pelvis, thorax and breast, lumps and bumps, limbs); 3. Applied physiology (cellular physiology, fluids and electrolytes, renal physiology, gastrointestinal physiology, endocrine physiology, vascular physiology, cardiac physiology, respiratory physiology); 4. Critical care (airway issues, breathing and ventilation, circulation and perfusion, head injury, sepsis, other issues); 5. Surgical pathology (growth and differentiation, death, damage and degeneration, regeneration and repair, inflammation and immunology, principles of oncology, haematology, microbiology); 6. Principles of surgery (perioperative care, theatre issues, trauma, ethical issues).
