Surgery: A Case Based Clinical Review Editorial Review: Surgery: A Case Based Clinical Review provides the reader with a comprehensive understanding of surgical diseases in one easy to use reference that combines multiple teaching formats.¬†The book begins using a case based approach.¬†The cases presented cover the diseases most commonly encountered on a surgical rotation.¬†The cases are designed to provide the reader with the classic findings on history and physical examination. The case presentation is followed by a series of short questions and answers, designed to provide further understanding of the important aspects of the history, physical examination, differential diagnosis, diagnostic work-up and management, as well as questions that may arise on surgical rounds.¬†Key figures and tables visually reinforce the important elements of the disease process. A brief algorithmic flow chart¬†is provided so the reader can quickly understand the optimal management approach. Two additional special sections further strengthen the student‚Äôs comprehension.¬†The first¬†section covers areas of controversy in the diagnosis or management of each disease, and another section discusses pitfalls to avoid, where the inexperienced clinician might get in trouble.¬†The¬†text¬†concludes with a series of multiple choice questions in a surgery shelf/USMLE format with robust explanations.¬†Surgery: A Case Based Clinical Review is based on 20 years of Socratic medical student teaching by a nine-time Golden Apple teaching awardee from the UCLA School of Medicine and will be of great utility¬†for¬†medical students when they rotate on surgery, interns, physician assistant students, nursing students and nurse practitioner students.
