This brand new Manual focuses on soft tissue surgery of the head, neck and thorax. Together with its companion volume, the BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Abdominal Surgery, it highlights for the veterinary surgeon in general practice the most commonly performed techniques. Procedures that are undertaken by those surgeons with more experience are also discussed so that practitioners can better inform their clients as to clinical options. The Manual begins with a consideration of general patient assessment and stabilization, anaesthesia and analgesia, and postoperative care for surgical conditions of the head, neck and thorax. An illustrated description of surgical instruments and materials follows. Chapters on different organs/systems consider relevant anatomy, clinical signs and diagnostics, and medical treatment in addition to surgical techniques. Emergency management of respiratory distress is described, including instructions on how to perform an emergency tracheostomy. Surgical approaches to the thoracic wall and drainage of the thoracic cavity are described in detail and illustrated. Step-by-step Operative Techniques detail the common procedures in an easy-to-follow practical way, with notes on patient positioning and preparation, instrumentation and postoperative care. Full-colour photographs and specially commissioned drawings illustrate both the Operative Techniques and the accompanying text. Surgical diseases of the head, neck and thorax are considered a challenge by many surgeons. This Manual, written by an international panel of authors, serves to demystify common techniques and provide a firm foundation for further development of surgical skills.

The BSAVA Manual of Canine and Feline Musculoskeletal Imaging is a brand new addition to the range of BSAVA Manuals and, together with its forthcoming sister manuals on Thoracic and Abdominal Imaging, builds on the classic BSAVA Manual of Small Animal Diagnostic Imaging. The manual is extremely practical to use, being structured along anatomical lines, with chapters considering individual joints, the long bones, the skull and the spine. In addition general chapters on soft tissues, bones and joints cover topics common to all regions of the musculoskeletal system. Each chapter is structured in the same way, allowing rapid familiarization and information retrieval: * Radiographic technique. * Normal anatomy. * Contrast studies. * Alternative imaging techniques. * Abnormal radiological findings. Radiology is the mainstay of musculoskeletal imaging but in recent years advanced imaging modalities, such as CT, MRI and ultrasonography, have become increasingly used in practice. Although the Manual is not designed to cover these aspects in-depth, the indications for use if these alternative imaging techniques are covered and appropriate examples given. The Manual is illustrated throughout - the concept of clear line diagrams has been retained from the BSAVA Manual of Small Animal Diagnostic Imaging, but a wide range of radiographs have been added to complement the text. The chapters have been written by a panel of internationally renowned authors, both specialist imagers and orthopaedic surgeons. The Manual therefore is not only designed for the veterinary undergraduate or general practitioner, either with or without a special interest in diagnostic imaging, but also for the orthopaedic surgeon as well as the specialist radiologist.
A Foundation Manual
Author: Stephen Baines,Vicky Lipscomb,Tim Hutchinson
This is a foundation level manual in the popular series from the BSAVA. It presents the basic principles upon which the practice of modern veterinary surgery is based. The principles of surgery will often dictate the outcome of a surgical procedure, more so than the use of the most up-to-date technique, and the surgeon ignores them at their peril. The BSAVA Manual of Surgical Principles presents a solid grounding in the basic principles, with practical examples of why they are important, creating a manual that is very readable and relevant for the veterinary surgeon in practice.

This manual is the second in the diagnostic imaging series. It begins by providing the reader with a grounding in the various imaging modalities: radiography, ultrasonography, computed tomography, magnetic resonance imaging, nuclear medicine and interventional radiological procedures. The second section is devoted to the individual body systems and includes chapters dedicated to the heart and major vessels, the lungs, the mediastinum, the pleural space and the thoracic boundaries. To aid the reader with information retrieval, each anatomical region is approached in the following way: radiographic anatomy and variations; interpretive principles; and diseases. Information on diseases is further subdivided into sections covering radiographic findings and the results and interpretation of other imaging studies. Each of the chapters is accompanied by a wealth of images, demonstrating both the normal radiographic appearance of structures and the abnormalities associated with disease. Specially commissioned illustrations provide an extra dimension.

Since publication of the third edition in 2004 there have been important advances. Several endocrine disorders, such as feline acromegaly and hyperaldosteronism, have risen in importance. The use of diet and novel insulins in diabetic cats, and new drugs such as trilostane and methimazole, which were briefly mentioned in previous editions are now considered routine. In addition, the genetic risks associated with many disorders have been elucidated. • A new chapter presents the principles of interpreting endocrine test results and discusses how test performance is assessed in relation to diagnostic confidence. • The central section on glands and their diseases is presented in a standard format -- detailing physiology, aetiology, clinical features, diagnosis and treatment - to aid information retrieval. • The final section has been rewritten to focus on solving clinical and clinicopathological abnormalities with an endocrine dimension.
