For more than half-a-century, Zollinger’s Atlas of Surgical Operations has been the gold-standard reference for learning how to perform the most common surgical procedures using safe, well-established techniques. This app continues this tradition of excellence with many user friendly features such as super fast search with spelling suggestions, alphabetized index of operations, recent viewing history, bookmarks, notes, color illustrations of more than 230 procedures that can be viewed in a swipe-able image gallery, and much more.
This app contains over 1600 color-highlighted illustrations that depict every important action a surgeon must consider while performing the operation. The text includes consistently formatted coverage of indications, preoperative preparation, anesthesia, position, operative preparation, incision and exposure, procedure, closure, and postoperative care.
JAMA review of book on which the app is based:
"...a beautifully illustrated atlas of modern surgical procedures....While in other atlases line drawings may simplify and operative photographs may add realism, the illustrations in this atlas allow the surgeon to visualize both the anatomy and the operation. Beyond this, the softly colored illustrations are aesthetically pleasing and invite reading of the accompanying narrative....In sum, while the ninth edition of Zollinger's Atlas of Surgical Operations differs from the early editions in many ways, it nonetheless evokes the enduring qualities of its predecessors and will guide yet another generation of surgeons."
This app is easy to navigate, allowing you to browse the contents or index of topics. The search tool shows you choices of words that appear in the text as you type so it is quick and helps with spelling issues. It also remembers past search terms so you can go back to a topic or image very easily. You can also create notes and bookmarks to enhance your learning. No internet connection needed to view the full app. It is all ready for super quick image and information retrieval. You also have the ability to change the text size for easier reading.
