Endocrine Surgery A Companion to Specialist Surgical Practice 5th Edition PDF
7.51 MB PDF
This Fifth Edition updates Endocrine surgery and brings in new authors and contributors. First of all, I would like to express my thanks to those previous chapter writers who, through retirement, no longer can contribute to this book. I have valued enormously their commitment in the past but the rules of the overarching editorial committee are that all authors must be in current practice and therefore we have had to say a sad goodbye to several friends and authors. By the same token this provides an opportunity to introduce new writers to the edition and that enables the contributions to be refreshed and comprehensively updated. So a warm welcome to our new authors as well. As ever, the importance of multidisciplinary team-working in endocrine surgery is stressed throughout this volume and the contributions do reflect several disciplines with whom the endocrine surgeon will need to work closely. Thyroid disease, which remains the most common condition that endocrine surgeons treat, continues to be the subject of controversial development, particularly in the field of nodal surgery. The debate rages as to whether or not prophylactic central node dissection is necessary in differentiated thyroid cancer in all cases or only in selected cases.
Minimally invasive approaches continue to be promoted and developed for all the organs we operate on, offering, when appropriate, less discomfort and pain for the patients, with a quicker and more comfortable recovery. All of the chapters in this book reflect the multidisciplinary approach to the subject, with up-to-date information on cytopathology, assays of hormones, localisation techniques, anaesthetic requirements, genetic implications and, of course, histopathology and adjuvant treatments. It is hoped that this book will therefore be of value to all those disciplines but more particularly to the endocrine surgeon who will be charged with managing the final pathway for these fascinating and sometimes challenging conditions. Finally, as before, I would like to dedicate this book to the memory of John Farndon, a leading light in British endocrine surgery; a close friend to many of us and a mentor to me. His influence and high standard of clinical and scientific work are still remembered and represent a benchmark for all of us.
