This evidence-based guide is the first of its kind to outline the surgical and perioperative management of patients with anatomical anomalies and support clinical decision-making under these difficult circumstances.
Presented in a simple, accessible format and organized by anatomical area, this book contains all the essential topics required by trainees and practitioners to assess the patient quickly, diagnose anatomic anomalies, determine the feasibility and safety of the planned surgical and anesthetic procedures, and arrange for advanced consults and care, if needed. Newer techniques for surgical and anesthetic management of patients with anatomic anomalies are presented to facilitate practitioners’ development of their skills. Chapters include the latest ultrasound techniques and images, as well as case studies.
Physicians, nurses, and trainees involved in the surgical, anesthetic, perioperative, or critical care of patients will find this guide to be their go-to resource in the OR, lab, or pain clinic.
