ABSTRACT

This edition maintains the fine standards set by its predecessors. The reviewer shares the problem that the author must have had in keeping the text up-to-date. The chapters that discuss anesthesia and antibiotics are excellent examples of how the author deals with this dilemma, and they have been written admirably. Adrenal hormone therapy is also well presented. The following remarks are not intended to detract from this book. However, one might question the advisability of including the drainage of suppurative cervical lymphadenitis, mixed tumors of the parotid, thyroglossal cysts and fistulas, hemorrhoidectomy, suturing of tendons, and the surgical treatment of varicose veins as being associated with the ambulatory patient. The chapter dealing with dressings and bandages is especially good. This subject has long been neglected, and its application has become a lost art. The section reads well and is lucidly illustrated. The author's vast number of experiences are succinctly portrayed
