Divided into fifteen chapters, this volume includes updates on perioperative fluid therapy, local anaesthetics, hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery, intestinal failure, locally recurrent rectal cancer, maxillofacial trauma, cancer surgery, and a review of randomised controlled trials and meta-analyses in surgery.
