Primary Surgery Trauma Volume 2

By Chris Dodgion | 07 Apr, 2010

"This is a detailed resource of trauma treatment methods designed mainly for hospitals in the developing world, but any practitioner who is not a trauma specialist will find it useful."

Thanks to GTZ and the German Society for Tropical Surgery, this is available free online.

We apologize for the difficulties downloading Primary Surgery volume 2
(Trauma). This has been caused by the renewing of the German Tropical
Surgeons' (DTC) website.

Thank you to Rishi Rattan for providing a link.

Kindly note that Primary Surgery volume 1 (Non-Trauma) has been entirely
revised, and the new edition is available freeonline through Global Help at:

A new edition of volume 2 is obviously needed and plans are afoot to
achieve this; interested specialists are welcome to offer their services.

Editor-in-Chief, Primary Surgery.
