Introduction: Equine Surgery
Getting Started With Equine Surgery Since the publication of the first edition in 1992, Equine Surgery has been accepted as a definitive clinical reference and teaching text. Like the first two editions, the third edition of the book has been prepared as a foundation text for the art and science of modern equine surgery. Our intent was to produce a comprehensive textbook that would be of practical help to general practitioners, as well as provide specialists and surgeons in training with a single reference source on equine surgery.
Accordingly, this third edition of the book has been significantly enlarged and includes new information, new authors, additional illustrations, and many more line drawings and tables. The task of reviewing the ever expanding literature into concise chapters was considerable. As the editors, we divided the responsibility for organizing the sections and inviting authors between the two of us; and, we believe that the outcome is consistency of content and presentation in the final text.
Additionally, we deliberately avoided omitting well-known material and concentrating only on state of the art techniques and procedures. We felt it was important that students, practitioners, and clinicians have a comprehensive textbook, discussing all aspects of this exciting field in depth, while staying current with new developments. All chapters in the third edition have been completely revised and updated. Many new chapters were added in areas of this discipline that are rapidly expanding. Personal thanks to our administrative assistants, Monica Deutsche (Zurich) and Martha Devin (East Lansing), without whom our lives would have been much more complicated during the compilation of this book.
