About the Authors
  • As surgical specialization becomes more focused, there is a growing lack of expertise amongst surgeons in life-preserving management of severely injured patients. This comprehensively updated second edition provides an in-depth, visual guide to both commonly and uncommonly performed trauma procedures. It includes over 900 high-quality color photographs and illustrations of step-by-step procedures on fresh, perfused and ventilated cadavers. Practical surgical anatomy, procedural sequencing, and common technical pitfalls are all clearly outlined. A number of new techniques have been introduced since the first edition, from REBOA (resuscitative endovascular balloon occlusion of the aortic), to ribplating for flail chest and skin grafting. Informed by the editors' experience in some of the busiest trauma centres in the world, the text has been updated throughout and includes additional photographs. This Atlas is an essential resource for trainee and operating trauma surgeons, general surgeons distant from academic centres, as well as emergency medicine and critical care personnel.

    • A comprehensive update to the award-winning Atlas of surgical trauma procedures, including new techniques, additional photographs and updated text throughout
    • Hundreds of color photographs of dissections and procedures on fresh, perfused cadavers provide trainee and operating surgeons with an accessible, visual guide
    • Provides detailed step-by-step coverage of procedures, helping surgeons to avoid technical pitfalls
