Anatomy in Surgery

Darvan A. Moosman, MD

This 938-page book on surgical anatomy is divided into ten sections covering the head, neck, thorax, abdomen, pelvis, male and female perineum and external genitalia, superior and inferior extremities, and the vertebral column and spinal cord. It has been written by an experienced surgeon for both surgeons and residents in training.

The subject is presented in a clear, interesting, and readable manner. The extraneous detail and minutiae found in the usual nonclinical texts of anatomy have been omitted. The illustrations are well chosen, lucid, and pertinent and relate to important and surgically significant structures. Some are in color. The large, clear labeling of the illustrations greatly aids in structure identification.

This type of presentation assists in the correlation of anatomy with its surgical application and operative procedures. Anatomy in Surgery will be valuable for those in surgical training and for others who wish to review the anatomy of selected regions.
