Hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery is a relatively new specialty and the vast majority of patients present initially outside tertiary referral centres. Many conditions such as gallstones, acute and chronic pancreatitis, obstructive jaundice and malignancies of the liver, biliary tract andpancreas are still managed outside specialist centres or are not suitable for referral. Many general surgeons continue to manage these problems and in some parts of the world the geography and distances involved makes referral for specialist care difficult or impossible. The relative scarcity ofspecialist centres for the management of these difficult conditions also means that the majority of trainees do not get sufficient exposure prior their definitive appointment to equip them with the tools needed to confidently manage many of the problems they may face.Operative Solutions in Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Surgery combines clearly written, practical text with over 200 illustrations and numerous flow charts which take the reader through the management of all the commonly encountered hepatobiliary and pancreatic pathologies and procedures. All aspectsof hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery are discussed in a clear and consistent style, while the flow charts are designed to be modified by the reader to adapt them to local practice and the facilities and expertise available. This book is invaluable for the senior trainee or newly appointedspecialist who requires clear, practical advice on how to manage the wide range of problems that present to surgeons outside specialist centres.
