This is a comprehensive study manual for the operative surgery section of the MRCS examination. This unique text is set to the level of a basic surgical examination and the material is discussed in easy to access, simple and informative manner. The A-Z format means topics appear at random, mirroring the nature of the examination. For each operative procedure the basic principles, applied anatomy, indications and complications are discussed alongside an overview of technique. Frequently asked examination questions and practical tips for giving the fullest answer for the most marks are also included. Care has been taken to ensure compatibility with all UK syllabuses, and inclusion of material required for equivalent examinations internationally. This manual is an excellent source of information for use during personal study and self-testing, and as a teaching aid.
