This book covers the management of surgical diseases "through the eyes" of a clinician by providing an evidence-based approach to specific clinical dilemmas. The chapters take the reader through a step-by-step "decision-making" approach to commonly encountered, but difficult to manage, situations where the editors share their rationale behind the process. Emphasis is placed on the use of tables and algorithms to simplify understanding. They aim to empower the readers with the ability to manage complex abdominal surgery scenarios in a streamlined manner, thus improving the care and outcome of patients.
