The fourth edition of Lachman's Case Studies in Anatomy succeeds in bridging the gap between theoretical anatomy and its application at the bedside, offering a superb demonstration of anatomical reasoning in clinical settings. A collection of fifty anatomical case studies, this book covers all the major regions of the body: head and neck, thorax, abdomen, pelvis and perineum, and limbs. Lachman's well-known informal and engaging writing style has been preserved throughout the book, including his tactic of formulating incisive, well-placed questions and then quickly supplying answers. A new chapter, "Central Venous Catheterization", has been added to the text and all other chapters have been updated to reflect the newest advances in treatment and diagnostic methods.The chapters on cholecystectomy, prolapse of the uterus, and knee injury have undergone extensive revision.
