This long-awaited second edition has been thoroughly updated and revised by Dr. Michael Salcman with the assistance of Edward R. Laws, MD, Roberto Heros, MD, and Volker Sonntag, MD, yet still preserves the user-friendly aspects of the original book: brevity and ease of practical application in the operating room environment.
