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.

This unique book, written by specialists from the UK, the USA, Canada, Australia and South Africa, bridges the disciplines of clinical pathology, internal medicine and critical care in a single volume. The Manual is divided into three sections: haematology, haemostasis and transfusion medicine. Within each section, review chapters are augmented by contributions on selected topics of interest to the practitioner. Methods of sample collection and interpretation for routine haematology, haemostatic function and bone marrow analysis are reviewed and new developments, such as flow cytometry for typing leukaemias, outlined. The diagnosis and management of a range of major infectious, immune-mediated and neoplastic diseases of the haematopopietic system are discussed. A chapter on canine babesiosis is timely, given the recent reports of cases in the UK, and a chapter is also included on the feline pathogen Haemobartonella felis. A wealth of excellent colour photographs throughout the book illustrates cell types and abnormalities, plus techniques such as blood transfusion. The range of coverage and the practical information in this Manual will render it of great value in the practice setting.
