About the Book

This essential companion to Bailey & Love’s Short Practice of Surgery covers the clinical conditions most commonly encountered by medical students, junior clinicians,and surgeons in training.

This is clinical anatomy at its best !

Structured by body region, each chapter includes plentiful clinical photographs and images supplementing the high-quality anatomical diagrams, using the best modality to demonstrate anatomical relevance. Highlighted descriptions of clinical relevance emphasise the integrated approach so central to current teaching practice, and facilitated by the wealth of both clinical and anatomical experience of the distinguished author team.

The expansion and integration of disciplines within the medical
curriculum has reduced time for anatomy teaching, particularly
for human dissection, but has not reduced its vital
importance. While surgeons need to know the detailed anatomy
in their operating field, knowledge of the anatomy that
underlies every clinical examination and every radiological/
medical image is an essential component of everyday clinical
This text provides a comprehensive cover of most normal
and abnormal living anatomy, essential for students across
the world. It addresses the knowledge and skills laid down
by the General Medical Council (GMC) and the American
Association of Clinical Anatomists (AACA; ‘A clinical
anatomy curriculum for the medical student of the 21st
century: gross anatomy’, Clinical Anatomy 1996;9:71–99; see
also Smith et al., ‘The Anatomical Society core regional anatomy
syllabus for undergraduate medicine’, Journal of Anatomy
The regional approach followed corresponds to a typical
clinical examination. The nervous system is included, rather
than being covered in an additional text; also included is
embryology in sufficient detail to explain many common congenital
abnormalities. Wherever possible, information, such
as muscle attachments, is tabulated and clinical information
is highlighted.
The extensive number of illustrations include surface anatomy,
coloured labelled diagrams, dissections, a wide range of
radiological, laparoscopic and endoscopic images, and clinical
pictures of common diseases. A comprehensive index facilitates
rapid location of the desired passages. Self-assessment
material is included at the end of each chapter; these multiple
choice questions (MCQs), single best answer (SBA) questions
(used in the USA and also now more widely), extended
matching questions (EMQs) and applied questions reflect
styles of examination around the world. The answers and
explanations can be found in the text, but additional material
is included where appropriate.
The authors bring a combined experience of over 150
years of anatomy teaching at all levels, and present this large
volume of information in a palatable, interesting and understandable
form, emphasizing its relevance to disease and clinical
