Editorial Reviews

"It is ideal as: a quick reference guide, for reading between cases, or during exam revision. With an increasingly obese, diabetic and aged patient population, I’m sure this book will appeal to Plastic, Orthopaedic, Vascular and General Surgeons alike, as well as many other clinical staff who work with these patients."
