This book is a comprehensive guide to the complete field of endocrine surgery. Divided into four sections the book covers thyroid surgery, parathyroid surgery, adrenal surgery, and surgery for pancreatic andcarcinoid tumours. Each section is further divided into surgery for different disorders within the relevant subspecialty.
The text provides the latest information on new topics including ultrasound for thyroid nodules, robotic thyroidectomy, parathyroid autotransplantation, adrenal metastastectomy, and neuroendocrine tumours. Each topic is presented in step by step format, from indications and preoperative assessment, to surgical planning, instruments, surgical procedure, follow up, and complications.
Techniques are illustrated by anatomical drawings and photographs, and each chapter features bullet points for quick reference. The atlas is authored by internationally recognised experts in the field of endocrinology, led by Sally Carty from University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine, Pennsylvania. The accompanying CD ROM demonstrates surgical procedures.
