Surgeons have a duty to provide accurate information before asking for consent for surgery, and patients are increasingly interested in obtaining as much information as possible regarding their procedures. Consent in Surgery addresses these vital areas, outlining the consent process for common surgical procedures, including indications, benefits, risks/complications, alternative treatment options, a brief description of each procedure and summaries of the relevant scientific evidence. It contains procedures from subspecialties including cardiothoracic surgery, neurosurgery, general surgery, paediatric surgery, plastic and reconstructive surgery, trauma and orthopaedic surgery, otolaryngology and urology. The procedures included fall within the Intercollegiate Surgical Curriculum Project and MRCS syllabi, and are assessed during higher specialist training, making the book an essential revision and interview preparation tool.CONSENT FORM Name of procedure: Heart valve replacement: biological or mechanical prosthesis Benefits: Treat heart valve disease Relieve symptoms ... 1005 patients (median age 68) underwent minimally invasive aortic valve surgery .
