Surgical Anatomy and Technique: A Pocket Manual, consistently places in the top 10 bestsellers for Springer.  The third edition will ensure its continued place on the list. The authors know exactly what makes this book popular: expansive scope; concise descriptions of anatomy and technique; illustrations on nearly every page; and its compact, portable size. The challenge, then, is in the very careful selection of topics and the need to be restrained in spite of the many surgical innovations that beg to be included but that have not yet stood the test of time. Toward that end, the third edition of Surgical Anatomy and Technique includes a limited amount of new material: 3 vascular procedures (abdominal aortic aneurysm, femoropopliteal bypass, and carotid endarterectomy) and 2 gynecologic procedures commonly performed by general surgeons (hysterectomy and oopherectomy). In addition, all of the existing chapters will be updated to reflect current surgical approaches and instrumentation. Third-year medical students, surgical residents and practicing surgeons will find this handbook to be one of their most-frequently-used resources.
