Preface

This book provides an update for medical students who need to keep abreast of recent developments. I hope also it will be useful for those preparing for postgraduate examination. This book is designed to provide a concise summary of surgical operations, which medical students and others can use as study guide by itself or with readings in current textbooks, monographs, and reviews. Summaries of relevant anatomical considerations are included in every chapter, taking into account that this book is written primarily for those who have some knowledge of anatomy, physiology, biochemistry and pharmacology. The author is extremely grateful to all the contributors for the high standard of the new chapters, and hopes that you, the reader, will enjoy going through these pages as much as he had.
