Current Surgical Guidelines
Although there are various official websites and printed guidelines available for the surgical sub-specialties, such as the Scottish Intercollegiate Guidelines Network (SIGN) and the National Institute for Health and Clinical Excellence (NICE), there is currently no central place for these guidelines to be accessed. Current Surgical Guidelines provides such a reference for those embarking on their surgical training, yet is also valuable as an aide-memoire for more senior surgical staff. Summarizing currently available surgical guidelines and clearly presenting them in one concise reference source, the book helps to make surgical practice a well-informed and enjoyable learning experience. The focus of the book is on UK and European guidelines, but it also includes US guidelines where relevant. Current Surgical Guidelines covers the main conditions requiring surgical care, such as breast cancer, critically ill surgical patients, and diverticular disease, focusing on the evidence and selection criteria which determine the best action to take. Recommendations have been graded according to relevant current guidelines and all benefits/risk decision recommendations have been supported by easy-to-digest facts and figures.
