Te Linde’s Operative Gynecology 11th Edition PDF
Even as surgical techniques continue to evolve and new techniques are introduced, basic surgical principles remain. With this new eleventh edition of Te Linde’s Operative Gynecology, the reader will find an increased emphasis on minimally invasive techniques of gynecologic surgery, but there remains a strong surgical foundation based on the correct diagnosis of the clinical condition, a complete and careful preoperative evaluation and counseling, a thorough understanding of the anatomy and physiology, and a thoughtful plan for postoperative recovery with appropriate expectations. The authors are all skilled and experienced surgeons who have had careers of surgical instruction, who not only guide the reader through the well-illustrated technique of surgery but also discuss the foundations of surgery. In this new edition, we have included a new chapter on robotic surgery, and the chapter on electrosurgical techniques has been extensively updated to include vessel sealing instruments.
The chapter on professional liability has been completely redone with new authors and an emphasis on risk prevention. The eleventh edition also boasts many new authors who have brought some fresh, new ideas and approaches to this classic text. Thirty-five of the fifty-one chapters have new authors who have reorganized and updated much of the diagnostic evaluation and management approaches to various gynecologic conditions. The editors have taken pains to select the best surgeons and the best teachers so that the textbook continues to maintain Richard Te Linde’s comfortable reading style and the helpful, practical “surgical pearls,” which will improve the skills of both the junior resident and the experienced gynecologic surgeon. Definitions, summary, questions/answers, and best surgical practices continue to be an important component of each chapter. In addition, where appropriate, contributing authors have added a “stepwise approach” to the performance of a specific gynecologic operation.
