Surgery of Air-filled cyst of the lung

A big single air-filled cyst of the left upper lobe of the lung


Popliteal fossa Mnemonic

Popliteal fossa: muscles arrangement

The two Semi's go together, Semimembranosus and Semitendonosus.
The Membranosus is Medial and since the two semis go together, Semitendonosus is also medial.

Therefore, Biceps Femoris has to be lateral.
Of the semi's, to remember which one is superficial: the Tendonosus is on Top.

Surgery at a Glance

Reviews of the current edition

"Quality! It is unsurprising this textbook is such a hit with students, probably for the way it condenses the essentials of what is a massive subject into such manageable segments. Taking a symptom based journey through surgery, Surgery at a Glance gives enough information to help you get the basics so you don't look like such an iegit when on a ward round the consultant asks you for 6 clinical features of appendicitis! ...It's a smashing little book!!!" Black Bag, Bristol University Medical School Gazette

"Surgery at a Glance presents clinical students with digestible chunks of essential knowledge at their fingertips and is written in a style that is easy to understand...The style of text combined with clean cut illustrations really makes Surgery at a Glance essential, not only for junior and senior surgery firms but also for finals revision. A snip at under £20, can you afford not to have it?" Sharp, St George's Union Magazine

"Overall, this is a very modern comprehensive coverage of a range of surgical conditions. I would recommend this book as an excellent resource for any surgical unit." Journal of Perioperative Practice, May 2006

"This is a book that allows you to see the big picture, and gives you the framework to further build your knowledge base from other sources. Fans of the at a Glance series will adore it." GKT Gazette, March 2007

"(the book's) organisation enables learning to be focused in a manner that takes into account the ways that patients present to doctors and then supports it by giving details of specific conditions." Cambridge Medicine

"...It really is the best of the best, in terms of textbook design. Although it hasn't made me want to be a haematologist, it has helped me understand what they do...It really is great, if you don't believe me, pick it up and look yourself" Black Bag - Bristol Medical School Gazette/2000
"Haematology at a Glance is a valuable book for primary learning as well as for revision, and I am sure that I will refer to it for years to come. My grandfather, a retired GP, was also impressed by it, and wishes he had it when he was at medical school. Having this book to hand makes me feel less daunted at the prospect of my upcoming pathology finals. The multiple choice questions and case studies with feedback will be a good starting point for my revision. Preparing for finals is a stressful time for students, and books such as this are greatly appreciated." The Royal College of Pathologists Bulletin
