An Atlas of Veterinary Surgery By John Hickman, Fully updated and revised in this new third edition, Atlas of Veterinary Surgery continues to provide both the practitioner and the student with a detailed reference to all the necessary surgical techniques required in general practice.
An Atlas of Veterinary Surgery By John Hickman
This book is divided into twelve sections each of which deals with surgical procedures on a regional basis or as a surgical discipline. The illustrations which accompany each surgical procedure are arranged sequentially with the explanatory text and accompanying captions interposed. This highly visual layout makes each procedure simple to follow. The text is supported by over 500 drawings and 100 photographs. This book is unique in its coverage of both large and small animals.
Since the publication of the first edition there have been many changes in operative surgery. Fundamental changes have occurred such as the development of synthetic absorb able suture materials and the refinement of anaesthetic techniques. Improved understanding of tissue healing has lead to new suture patterns being adopted and the development of new instruments, such as staple guns and arthroscopes, has changed many procedures, particularly in equine surgery.
It would be impossible to include all of these in one volume and maintain the original concept of the Atlas. Thus we have attempted to concentrate on the basic surgical procedures and make no apology for omitting others. A bibliography is provided from which readers can obtain information about those not included here.
The original format is largely unchanged although many new figures have been included and new procedures added. Section IO has been considerably revised in view of the now widespread application of the AO/ ASIF principles of fracture repair. The terminology has been changed to conform with that used in Anatomica Veterinaria, although to maintain the style of the first edition some terms in common usage have been retained.
