The Washington Manual of Surgery 8th Edition Pdf Book Description:

Welcome to the eighth edition of The Washington Manual™ of Surgery. Over the past 100 years, the most important focus of our Department of Surgery has been medical education of students, residents, fellows, and practicing surgeons. This commitment is clearly evident in the current edition of The Washington Manual of Surgery. The educational focus of our Department of Surgery has a rich tradition. The first full-time head of the Department of Surgery at Washington University was Dr. Evarts A. Graham (1919–1951). Dr. Graham was a superb educator. Not only was he an outstanding technical surgeon, but his insightful comments at conferences and ward rounds were well known and appreciated by a generation of surgeons who learned at his elbow. Dr. Graham was a founding member of the American Board of Surgery and made many seminal contributions to the management of surgical patients. His work in the development of oral cholecystography actually helped establish the Mallinckrodt Institute of Radiology at Washington University. Dr. Graham was among the first to identify the epidemiologic link of cigarette smoking to lung cancer and was instrumental in raising public health consciousness about the deleterious effect on health from cigarette smoke.

As with the previous editions, this eighth edition of The Washington Manual of Surgery is designed to complement The Washington Manual of Medical Therapeutics. Written by resident and faculty members of the Department of Surgery at Washington University in St. Louis, we present a brief, rational approach to the management of surgical conditions and topics relevant to surgeons. The text is directed to the reader at the second- or third-year surgical resident level, although all residents, surgical and nonsurgical attendings, medical students, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and others who provide care for patients with surgical conditions will find this Manual of interest and assistance. The book provides a succinct discussion of surgical diseases, with algorithms for addressing problems based on the opinions of the authors. Although multiple approaches may be reasonable for some clinical situations, this Manual attempts to present a single, effective approach for each. We have limited extensive details on diagnosis and therapy as this is not meant to be an exhaustive, detailed surgical reference. Coverage of pathophysiology, the history of surgery, and extensive reference lists have been excluded from most areas.
