This book focuses on decision making in clinical surgery. Clinical decision making is a core competency of surgical practice. It involves two distinct types of mental process best considered as the ends of a continuum, ranging from intuitive and subconscious to analytical and conscious. In practice, individual decisions are usually reached by a combination of each, according to the complexity of the situation and the experience or expertise of the surgeon. This book comprised of 11 sections, which include systemic topics, abdominal pain, abdominal conditions, anorectal conditions, head and neck, breast, groin conditions, vascular, skin and subcutaneous tissue, trauma, and general care of surgical patient, which is further divided into 76 chapters.
