Browse's Introduction to the Symptoms & Signs of Surgical Disease

Written for medical students and junior doctors, the fifth edition of this essential textbook has been fully revised and updated, including additional illustrations and photographs. The text teaches the clinical symptoms and signs of surgical disease, stressing the importance of a thorough history and bedside examination. Presenting the symptoms and signs in a formalized, systematic manner, it describes in detail the techniques of clinical examination, enabling students to elicit key symptoms and make sound clinical decisions.

Browse's Introduction to the Investigation and Management of Surgical Disease

This volume provides clear insight into how the pathological features and extent of disease dictate necessary diagnostic investigations and treatment.

The content is highly structured, with each chapter divided into three sections:

    • Relevant Pathology provides a brief description of the important pathological features of the disease relevant to the clinical diagnosis, investigations, and treatment
    • Investigations covers significant clinical findings, including radiological, biochemical, haematological, immunological, pathological, and genetic
    • Treatment reviews all aspects of management

Other key features include more than 300 high-quality clinical photographs and 60 color line drawings to enhance textual explanations, as well as learning and review boxes to aid understanding and provide a tool for self-assessment. The book is essential reading for all medical students undertaking a surgical rotation or preparing for their surgical exams.
