    29 7 PREFACE TO THE FIRST EDITION
    Each year, thousands of general surgery residents across the country express anxiety
    over preparation for the American Board of Surgery In-Training Examination (ABSITE), an
    exam designed to test residents on their knowledge of the many topics related to general
    surgery.
    This exam is important to the future career of general surgery residents for several
    reasons. Academic centers and private practices searching for new general surgeons use
    ABSITE scores as part of the evaluation process. Fellowships in ? elds such as surgical
    oncology, trauma, and cardiothoracic surgery use these scores when evaluating poten-
    tial fellows. Residents with high ABSITE results are looked upon favorably by general
    surgery program directors, as high scorers enhance program reputation, helping garner
    applications from the best medical students interested in surgery.
    General surgery programs also use the ABSITE scores, with consideration of feed-
    back on clinical performance, when evaluating residents for promotion through resi-
    dency. Clearly, this examination is important to general surgery residents.
    Much of the anxiety over the ABSITE stems from the issue that there are no dedi-
    cated outline-format review manuals available to assist in preparation. The ABSITE Review
    was developed to serve as a quick and thorough study guide for the ABSITE, such that it
    could be used independently of other material and would cover nearly all topics found
    on the exam. The outline format makes it easy to hit the essential points on each topic
    quickly and succinctly, without having to wade through the extraneous material found in
    most textbooks. As opposed to question-and-answer reviews, the format also promotes
    rapid memorization.
    Alt hough speci? cally designed for general surgery residents taking the ABSITE, the
    information contained in The ABSITE Review is also especially useful for certain other
    gr oups:
    • General surgery residents preparing for their written American Board of Surgery
    certi? cation examination
    • Surgical residents going into another specialty who want a broad perspective of
    general surgery and surgical subspecialties (and who may also be required to take
    the ABSITE)
    • Practicing surgeons preparing for their American Board of Surgery recerti? cation
    e x amination The sixth edition of The ABSITE Review continues to target important material found
    in the ABSITE with new guidelines and information on infection, trauma care, breast
    cancer, humeral rejection, and a number of other topics. Like previous editions, The
    ABSITE Review provides a quick, easy review of important surgical topics while still provid-
    ing suf? cient explanation, so readers do not feel lost.
    Again, I thank all of the residents who gave me feedback on the books or who I met
    at surgical meetings saying, “I used your books in residency and they were great.” I am
    glad I could help out.
    Thank you again and good luck on the ABSITE.
