Comprehensive Review of General Surgery provides guidance for preoperative, intraoperative, and postoperative management, as well as management of complications. Led by Pardon R. Kenney, MD, clinically-skilled speakers offer direction in selecting operative techniques, outlining the advantages and disadvantages of both open and minimally invasive surgery.
Lectures in this continuing medical education board review cover a broad range of surgical areas (vascular, breast, abdominal, alimentary tract, trauma, etc.) and reinforce important take-home points, including:
- Critical Care. Operative necrosectomy should be the last procedure offered to a patient with necrotizing pancreatitis. Exhaust all other options (percutaneous drainage, endoscopic drainage, video-assisted retroperitoneal debridement) before offering open pancreatic necrosectomy.
- Ethics. Palliative care is not restricted to care at the end of life or for the imminently dying. It’s an focused on improving quality of life that’s appropriate at any stage of serious illness.
- Gynecologic Challenges. Unlike most general surgical procedures, gynecologic surgeries often require fertility considerations before determining the best course of action.
- Tumor Biology. Solid tumors are associated with mutations in proto-oncogenes and tumor suppressors. These mutations disrupt known signaling pathways that are required for normal cellular and immune homeostasis, and often promote a more aggressive tumor behavior. These genetic mutations may be useful therapeutic targets.
