Hepato-pancreato-biliary (HPB) surgery is now firmly established within the repertoire of modern general surgery. Indeed, in many major tertiary centres there are now specific teams for both pancreatic and liver surgery. However, in most hospitals outside these major centres the day-to-day management and decision-making for patients with these disorders remains the remit of the general surgeon and presents often highly complex clinical scenarios. Surgical Management of Hepatobiliary and Pancreatic Disorders is a detailed guide to management in problems arising from cancer, trauma, cysts and other conditions, both acute and chronic. It is intended to cover the spectrum of common HPB diseases that will confront the general surgeon in his or her regular practice. The chapters are problem-based, rather than didactic descriptions of pathology and surgical technique. It is sufficiently comprehensive to cover the broad spectrum of HPB surgery for candidates coming to examinations at the completion of surgical training and will act as a comprehensive reference tool for surgeons in practice and in training.
