Apart from diabetes mellitus, endocrine diseases requiring surgical treatment are relatively uncommon. However, when they do occur, they frequently present major clinical anaesthestic problems that require extensive knowledge of the pathophysiology of the condition, and considerableanaesthetic expertise. This book provides the anaesthetist with a comprehensive examination of each of the endocrine conditions, covering underlying pathophysiological problems, and guidance on optimal anaesthetic care. It will be of use to trainee and consultant anaesthetists working in bothspecialist endocrine wards and general surgery wards where a patient with endocrine disease might present.
Mike James is in the Department of Anaesthesia at the University of Cape Town, and Groote Schuur Hospital, Cape Town in South Africa.
