Gastric and Oesophageal Surgery serves as a detailed, evidence-based guide to benign and malignant oesophageal and gastric surgery, covering in a practical and accessible manner the myriad surgical conditions that trainees and consultants in the area will face. Whilst its compact size allows it great portability as a ‘pocket guide’, its succinct writing style gives the reader excellent ease of reference and a thorough ‘how-to’ on all major surgical processes. A comprehensive, highly topical evidence base is supplemented by a wealth of expert advice, which is easily accessed as practical tips within clearly laid out chapters. This makes the book an ideal revision aid for the FRCS General Surgery exit examinations, although its breadth and depth of coverage will benefit new consultant surgeons as well as junior surgical trainees. Highly illustrated with over 110 line drawings and photographs, it is the ideal volume to refresh the memory and consolidate knowledge in clinic or before surgery.
