Hernia Surgery 1st Edition PDF Free Download
First published in German over 25 years ago, Hernien represented the first modern work on surgical technique and is now in its fifth edition. This standard work is now being published in English by Thieme. The cautious beginnings and definitions in what was over 25 years ago a rather marginal branch of “real surgery” have now become a stable pillar of routine surgical practice. Hernia surgery, with its great variety of methods, now accounts for 10–15% of surgical procedures and is also the subject of national and international conferences, with its own specialist societies. Hernia management, formerly a little-regarded stepchild, has now become an important branch of general surgery, with a major research impetus and a deluge of medical devices. Compared with other branches of surgery, patients are usually younger and have longer life expectancy. In the 1980s and 1990s, the development of hernia surgery experienced something of a gold-rush mentality; what had been left to the youngest trainee surgeons now became the focus of attention thanks to new methods, modern materials, and revised scientific ideas. Even the opinion leaders of the surgical associations were now interested in hernia surgery and visited and chaired conferences on this topic. Not least due to their influence, new methods, new materials, new companies, new concepts, new “pioneers”, and new questions shot up like mushrooms. Hardly any conference dared to omit hernia as a leading topic and even today, the announcement of a hernia session regularly attracts hundreds of interested surgeons. After the success story of the last quarter century, the initiators may be permitted to look back at what they accomplished and define what has been tried and tested. The history of hernia surgery will continue to develop steadily in future but nevertheless this manual, which makes recommendations for routine surgical practice, appears justified. What was a delicate shoot has now become a strong, important, and pioneering branch of surgery with numerous sturdy side-branches. The authors hope that this English edition will attract as much attention as the first edition 25 years ago.
