Churchill’s Pocketbook of Surgery – Preface

The authors of the fourth edition (ATR, MSD and MJDW) are grateful to the publishers, Elsevier Ltd, for the invitation to produce the fth edition of the Pocketbook of Surgery. Michael Delbridge and Marcus Wagstaff, who were Specialist Registrars when the fourth edition was written, have now obtained consultant appointments. It was therefore felt that a further younger author would now be helpful in bringing the book up to date and I am pleased that Katherine Bridge, Clinical Research Training Fellow in Vascular Surgery, has agreed to ll this role. In previous editions the authors wrote all the chapters themselves and submitted them to specialist surgeons to seek their advice in re-shaping the text. We decided in this edition that specialist surgeons should write certain appropriate chapters and, to this end, we asked specialist registrars and junior consultants to take on this task. We, ourselves, have written the general chapters. It is now 20 years since the rst edition; much has changed in that time and over the editions most of the chapters have been updated. The authors of each chapter were given a brief to write material that is medical student friendly as well as suitable for MRCS candidates. In particular, it was decided to emphasize certain points and to this end we have added ‘hints and tips’ placed in boxes throughout the chapters. We hope that the readership will nd these useful. Churchill’s Pocketbook of Surgery

The aim of this small volume, however, remains the same: namely, to provide a concise and didactic account of the essential features of the more common surgical disorders. The book covers fundamental principles as well as providing basic information on aetiology, diagnosis and management, including preoperative and postoperative care. It will give the student some idea of history taking, what physical signs to elicit, the differential diagnosis and what investigations to order and how to treat the patient. The text covers the eld of general surgery but aims to cover the basic needs of undergraduates and those in the early years of postgraduate training, as far as the surgical specialties are concerned. We are assured that in these days of self-directed, student-centred, problem-based learning led by medical educationalists, there is still a place for a small book offering a didactic approach to the acquisition of surgical knowledge. Read in conjunction with Churchill’s Pocketbook of Differential Diagnosis, it will provide almost everything the undergraduate needs to know and also suf cient information for the postgraduate studying for the MRCS. We hope the book will continue to help you on the wards and in the clinics and will provide the necessary information for success in examinations.
