Book Description

October 11, 2005 0387232672 978-0387232676 2nd
Since its publication in 1998, The SAGES Manual: Fundamentals of Laparoscopic and GI Endoscopy has become a true classic. Now, in its new second edition, the manual continues to be a comprehensive, concise and timely contribution to the field of minimally invasive surgery. The text provides an authoritative synopsis of the major minimally invasive procedures in an easy-to-read outline format. The text has been fully revised with new chapters added to reflect advances in the field. The new edition now features laparoscopy, endoscopy and a new section on thoracoscopy. The laparosopic section reviews the important basics of laparoscopic surgery, including general principles, diagnostic laparoscopy and biopsy, laparoscopic cholecystectomy and common bile duct exploration, laparoscopic gastric surgery, procedures on the small inestine, appendix and colon, the pancreas, spleen and retroperintoneum, hernia repair, and pediatric laparoscopy. The endoscopic section reviews gastrointesinal endoscopy for the general surgeon. It begins with an overview of the general principles of flexible endoscopy, and continues to discuss such procedures as upper gastrointestinal endoscopy, choledochostomy, colonoscopy, and pediatric endoscopy. The thoracoscopy section covers the basic principles of thoracoscopic surgery, including patient preparation and positioning, exploratory thoracoscopy for staging malignancies, esophagomyotomy, and operations for esophageal diverticula. New to the second edition are chapters on laparoscopic bariatric surgery, using hand-assisted devices in laparoscopy, and a new set of chapters on thoracoscopy. 50 new illustrations complement the text. A must-have reference for the general surgery resident or practicing surgeon.

More About the Author

I graduated from New York University College of Medicine in 1976 and completed my surgical residency there in 1981. I was one of the last physicians to train in the "old" Bellevue Hospital. At that time, very few women entered general surgery. I have spent my life in academic surgery, operating and teaching others the science and art of surgery. When I was appointed Head of the Department of Surgery at the University of Iowa in 1995, I was the second woman in the history of American Surgery to attain such a position. My nine textbooks all share the goal of teaching surgery in clear, lucid language. My most recent book, A Few Small Moments, is a collection of short stories. I live in Iowa City with my husband.

5.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful resource December 2, 2001
A great debt is owed to SAGES for the publication of this book. There is no other resource quite like it. It truly is "the bible" for anyone who performs laparoscopic surgery. Although there will always be different nuances in surgical technique, this is a wonderful starting point for begining laparoscopists.
Heavy on technical information; light on pictures.

The SAGES MANUAL is a good pocket book for general surgeons.It is a portable and small but extended book.It gives everything about especially laparoscopy.It starts with equipment,patient preperation and troubleshooting and then continues with the everything of laporoscopy and endoscopy.If you have a question about something for laparoscopic surgery,you can be sure to find the answer in this good prepared and organized book.Organization of book is excellent.Everything is arranged .You don't lose your way in the book.Especially indication,technique and complications parts are very succesful.You can find a large section about the principles of laparoscopic hemostasis.Congratulations to writers
