Advanced Update in General Surgery

I have collected these notes from different sources during my revision for the FRCS exam.

It is not a formal text book nor a systematic notes to start studying with.

It is not suitable for junior surgeons.

Some subjects are hand written.

This is a scanned version of the original notes.

It is a very good source for revision before any advanced exam in General Surgery specially the FRCS or to update your knowledge in General Surgery.

Emergency Surgery for Juniors – PDF – FREE DOWNLOAD

This PDF file is a very brief guide which was designed initially for interns in Cairo University hospitals to help them throughout the initial management of patients with surgical emergency presentation until they could seek senior advice.

Recently, I have found a lot of my junior colleagues including junior residents (SHOs) and interns (FYs) in many hospitals in Egypt using this guide in their practice. So, I decided to upload it here for you.
