by Christopher J. Price and Rodney Sinclair, 104 pp, with illus, $24, ISBN 1-903734-01-0, Oxford, England, Health Press, 2001.
Price and Sinclair have composed a small, inviting paperback introduction to cutaneous surgery. The book is aimed at the primary care practitioner, for whom it seeks to demystify simple cutaneous procedures. An 8-part table of contents is itemized on the cover, where a different color is assigned to each chapter. Colored bars at the outer edges of the pages correspond to this scheme.
The chapters are "Operative Set-up and Equipment," "Local Anesthesia," "Surgery and the Skin," "Treatment Planning," "Avoiding Complications," "Suturing Techniques and Removal," "Surgical Procedures," and "Examining Your Practice."
