ACS Multimedia Atlas of Surgery: Hernia Surgery Volume

The American College of Surgeons Division of Education and Ciné-Med, Inc. have developed the interactive ACS Multimedia Atlas of Surgery: Hernia Surgery Volume.

A comprehensive atlas style text, this volume includes 28 chapters presenting hernia repair techniques using open and laparoscopic methods. Expert surgeons provide detailed, step-by-step instruction using a combination of video, illustration, and intraoperative photos to clarify specific points of the procedure.

The text opens with an illustrated outline of the hernia anatomy and a chapter on early history of hernia in a discussion on Edoardo Bassini's operative technique. The balance of the text addresses specific types of hernias and relevant repair techniques as outlined below. It also includes an anatomy quiz for laparoscopic inguinal hernia repair.

  • Lichtenstein Tension-Free
  • Plug Mesh
  • Shouldice
  • Kugel Preperitoneal
  • Transabdominal Preperitoneal Approach (TAPP)
  • Totally Extraperitoneal Approach (TEP)

Foreword

Research in surgical education has demonstrated the superiority of interactive and experiential educational approaches over traditional didactic educational methods. This has resulted in the development and use of a spectrum of new and innovative educational programs and products that involve multimedia and simulation. The Internet offers a special platform for delivery of these educational programs and also enhances access.

The ACS Multimedia Atlas of Surgery series has been developed by the American College of Surgeons (ACS) Division of Education with Horacio J. Asbun, MD, FACS, as Editor-in-Chief. This multimedia program is especially designed to address the cognitive elements of surgical procedures. Each procedure is presented in a step-wise fashion, and the technical steps are described through text, narration, illustrations, and videos. The format of the program permits the learner to progress through the entire procedure or to focus on a specific step. Expert commentaries highlight special nuances, error-prone situations, and actions that should be taken to prevent errors. The emphasis on the delivery of surgical care of the highest quality and on specific elements to promote patient safety is especially noteworthy. The chapters are authored by internationally renowned experts in the field. The program has proven to be of immense value to practicing surgeons, surgery residents, and members of the surgical team.

Please note that the statements and content expressed in this volume, including the descriptions of surgical techniques, illustrations, and video clips, reflect the opinions of the authors and the consensus of the editors, but not necessarily the opinions or official position of the American College of Surgeons. Certain limitations of the ACS Multimedia Atlas of Surgery are worthy of note. The Atlas is a learning tool and is not recommended for formal, summative evaluation. Although the items and the critiques have been thoroughly reviewed by the authors and editors, the content does not necessarily reflect all relevant material or points of view.

We are delighted to present the ACS Multimedia Atlas of Surgery, which covers hernia surgery. Editors of this volume are Horacio J. Asbun, MD, FACS, and David A. Geller, MD, FACS. I would like to extend to them my profound gratitude for their outstanding leadership, commitment, and willingness to share their expertise with others. I am also grateful to Olivier Petinaux, Senior Manager of Distance Education and E-Learning in the ACS Division of Education, for his exceptional support of this superb educational program.
