Last's Anatomy: Regional and Applied
This is the ninth edition of a text dealing with the anatomy of the human body on a regional basis. It emphasizes the clinical and applied aspects of the subject for undergraduates and postgraduate trainees in medicine, surgery and dentistry. The text has been extensively revised, particularly the chapters on embryology, the abdomen, the pelvis and the nervous system; more scans and radiographs have been added, along with around 70 new diagrams; and new points of clinical and surgical relevance have been added throughout. The author has taken account of the new part 1 FRCS examinations and has tried to make this book particularly useful to postgraduate surgery and dental surgery students, without losing its appeal as an undergraduate textbook.
