The author has attempted to include the important points of surgical practice in a brief synopsis. It is not meant to replace surgical textbooks but to supplement them by offering the student an opportunity to review the entire subject and to permit the busy practitioner to get a general and systematic survey of modern surgical practice. In this edition the work has been revised and brought down to date, with the inclusion of a number of new methods of treatment. The arrangement of a standard textbook is followed, but the outline form is used and only a few of the salient points are given under each heading. Some of the main subjects taken up are inflammation, acute and chronic infections, tumors, wounds and their treatment, anesthesia, and diseases and injuries of the various systems of the body. The various regions of the body, including the viscera, are then taken up
