About the Authors
  • This is a comprehensive study manual for the MRCS viva exam covering critical care, physiology, pathology, principles of surgery, anatomy and operative surgery. These topics are tested in a short exam requiring a broad knowledge base, and are provided in a clear concise format in this invaluable revision tool. The A-Z format means topics appear at random, mirroring the nature of the exam. For each operative procedure the basic principles, applied anatomy, indications and complications are discussed alongside an overview of technique. Frequently asked exam 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 syllabi, and inclusion of material required for equivalent exams internationally. An excellent source of information for use during personal study and self-testing and as a teaching aid.
