The book presents some of the iconography accumulated over the course of a lifetime of hospital and university service, dealing with subjects that are common, infrequent and even rare in clinical practice. Understanding that reflecting about the success or failure of surgery is part of the learning process, it also considers iatrogenic disorders and complications, identifying the risks incurred and errors made. Particular details or manifestations that are characteristic of the pathology or affect the intervention are pointed out. The chapters cover different pathologies, organs and specialties, though not in isolation. Some of the figures could have been included in more than one chapter, but this was avoided to prevent repetition, and is compensated for by the index. Indeed, the material may be reformulated and new images from the archive added, if required.
