Gray's Anatomy, 40th Edition Год выпуска: 2008 Автор: Susan Standring Жанр: Медицина/Анатомия Издательство: CHURCHILL LIVINGSTONE ELSEVIER ISBN: 978-0-8089-2371-8 Качество: eBook (изначально компьютерное). Формат - CHM. Язык: Английский Описание: Вашему вниманию предоставляется учебник по анатомии. The 40th edition of Gray's Anatomy celebrates 150 years of continuous publication of an extraordinary book. Although this edition looks very different from the first edition (see Ruth Richardson's historical introduction on page xvii), the essential aim of Henry Gray and the illustrator Henry Vandyke Carter, to describe the clinically relevant anatomy of the human body, particularly (but not exclusively) for the practicing surgeon, has not changed over the years. Anatomy may be struggling to retain its foothold in many undergraduate medical curricula, but it is enjoying a renaissance at the postgraduate level. A detailed knowledge of clinical anatomy which would have been undreamed of in the first edition, is now essential for clinicians working in technologically driven fields such as imaging, endoscopic and robotic surgery. As a general rule, the orientation of diagrams and photographs throughout the book has been standardized to show the left side of the body, irrespective of whether a lateral or medial view is presented, and transverse sections are viewed from below to facilitate comparison with clinical images. Clinicopathological examples have been selected where the pathology is either a direct result of, or a consequence of, the anatomy, or where the anatomical features are instrumental in the diagnosis/treatment/management of the condition. All of the pre 39th edition artworks, and the great majority of the images and micrographs of histological and embryological specimens have been replaced: wherever possible, the photomicrographs illustrate human histology and embryology, and non human sources have been acknowledged in the captions. New artworks have either been generated de novo or have been taken from other texts (principally Sobotta's Atlas of Anatomy, Books 1 and 2 or Gray's Atlas of Anatomy), making this the first full-colour edition of Gray's Anatomy.
Историческая справка об издании
The year 2008 sees the 150th anniversary of the publication of Gray's Anatomy. The book is a rarity in textbook publishing in having been in continuous publication on both sides of the Atlantic Ocean, for so long. One and a half centuries is an exceptionally long era for a textbook, and of course the volume published now is very different from the one Mr. Henry Gray first created with his colleague Dr Henry Vandyke Carter, in mid-Victorian London. In this introductory essay, I shall explain the long history of Gray's, from those Victorian days right up to today. The shortcomings of existing anatomical textbooks probably impressed themselves upon Henry Gray when he was still a student at St George's Hospital Medical School, near London's Hyde Park Corner, in the early 1840s. He began thinking about creating a new anatomy textbook a decade later, while war was being fought in the Crimea. New legislation was being planned which would establish the General Medical Council (1858) to regulate professional education and standards. Gray was twenty-eight years old, and a teacher himself at St George's. He was very able, hard-working, and highly ambitious, already a Fellow of the Royal Society, and of the Royal College of Surgeons.
