Single Surgical Procedures in Obstetrics and Gynaecology–14: A Colour Atlas of Caesarean Section
First Edition: 2012
One of the legendry artists’ surgeons of India who excelled and afforded respect to a newly formed specialisation Gynaecological and Obstetrical Surgeries.
Famous in the 50s, 60s and 70s fondly called Teacher of Teachers.
Through this great master, I see a glimpse of his surgical mannerisms in my work trying to achieve surgical perfection which came so naturally to him.
Lest he be forgotten in the footprints of time, a humble effort to propagate his excellence through this organisation for posterity.
… lest the coming generations be starved of the magical art of gynaecological and obstetrical surgery.
Anything that simplifies our medical education is always welcomed. This series, “Single Surgical Procedures in Obstetrics and Gynaecology” is organised into multiple volumes based on all gynaecological and obstetrical surgical procedures related to female reproductive organs. Special sections are dedicated to patient positioning, type of incisions, their closures along with proper use of drains, suture choices, etc. Special emphasis is placed on different aspects of surgical options for various types of genital prolapse, and non-descent vaginal hysterectomy (NDVH) in different situations.
We, as editors of this “Colour Atlas of Caesarean Section”, have set out to simplify surgery by creating a step-by-step procedural process, illustrated to emphasise those surgical steps which are critical to caeserean delivery. The technique of lower segment as well the classical upper segment caesarean section has been covered. We have also provided important notes in an effort to aid the surgeons in reducing blood loss, minimising complication rates, and improving their surgical skills.
All the commonly done obstetrical and gynaecological procedures are illustrated in this series. Nevertheless, some rarely done procedures required by very selected group of cases are also discussed in different volumes so that one can assist the experienced surgeon with this, serving as a source of basic information illustrating the surgical technique.
We hope that the resident gynaecologic surgeon will find this series of books on surgical procedures very useful as he or she prepares for a career in this area of surgery and begins to perform these procedures. We believe that the experienced gynaecologic surgeon will also find this as a useful reference with many new approaches and helpful notes for commonly performed operations.
I am grateful to Director, Brig T Prabhakar, who has a fixation for quality and continued progress, dedicated to his institution. He has always cajoled his staff to move forward and do something that ‘makes a difference’. This series is an attempt in this direction. All through our hours of toil, he always helped us in smoothening the rough edges and this work carries the hallmark of his ‘quality’.
I am thankful to all the staff of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology of UP Rural Institute of Medical Sciences and Research, Saifai, Etawah, Uttar Pradesh, India for their contribution in this project.
My better half, Dr (Mrs) Manju Nagrath, Department of Radiodiagnosis, UP Rural Institute of Medical Sciences and Research, Saifai, Etawah, Uttar Pradesh, India, who has stood by me, tolerating my hours of frustration and its manifestations and constantly encouraging me to ‘keep up’ my endeavours and see this work through completion.
The preparation of the book of this magnitude involves many individuals who play a role in its creation. I am especially proud of the quality of the photographs and it would be in place to put on record the contribution of Mr Dharmendra, Photographer of excellence, Department of Social and Preventive Medicine, UP Rural Institute of Medical Sciences and Research, Saifai, Etawah, Uttar Pradesh, India, for his untiring assistance.
To our patients who have very kindly consented to allow the use of their operative sequences for the purpose of advancement of medical education.
