Product description


The Editors, during their worldwide traveling as World Presidents of the International College of Surgeons, became aware of the need for a text on Tropical Surgery to sit alongside a number of excellent medical books in this field. They have brought together a distinguished team of surgeons and other experts in the management of tropical diseases, comprising: 265 authors from 39 countries; contributing over 280 articles; 809 figures (including maps and life cycles); 291 tables The book provides in-depth cover of all aspects of tropical surgery, this extending well beyond that of standard surgical practice. Sections cover history, environment, natural and man made disasters, and problems influencing the quality of life, as well as those on systemic and infectious diseases. The extensive cover of the latter reflects the preponderance of parasitic disease in tropical areas. Investigatory techniques consider modern developments, as well as standard pathological data, while the imaging sections add up to an independent volume within the text. All aspects of perioperative care are considered; therapeutic measures extend from acupuncture and low cost surgery, to complex transplantation techniques and robotic surgery. 24 tables are included on the classification of organisms and disease, while the 46 tables on differential diagnosis include 1500 independent entries. The case histories, and hints and tips, compliment the rest of the text and highlight specific areas of interest.

From the Author

Collectively the book provides an encyclopaedic cover of tropical disease. It is essential information for all those

working in health care in tropical areas, including surgeons, physicians, pathologists, and all those working in service and in academic institutions worldwide.
