This book provides a useful guide for the management of complex abdominal wall problems from the perspective of a general surgeon, with sensible, practical clinical advice for the management of problems as they arise. Starting from managing the open abdomen and optimising the chances of achieving later definitive fascial closure, through to dealing with incisional and parastomal hernias throughout the abdomen. Expert guidance supported by an evidence-based review of the literature aids higher surgical trainees and consultant general surgeons who wish to expand their practice in this area.Focuses on the needs of the general surgeonOffers practical tips and advice for handling difficult casesBased on current best evidence Complemented by high quality imagesInter-disciplinary studies are emerging rapidly to meet the insistent demands of the modern age. Biblical interpretation is itself inter-disciplinary, drawing together the biblical traditions and others to address the problem of interpreting texts. Christian ethics is also multi-disciplinary and thus no stranger to this new ethos. To bring these two areas together is a potentially creative undertaking. It comes at a time when much attention is being paid to reading texts and the interpretive tradition. The author's principal aim is to read the Bible in the context of moral concern. Attention is paid to the liberal quest and to eschatology and ethics (each marking a distinct epoch in the relationship of Bible and ethics), before the post-critical age is studied under the rubric 'participation in meaning'. The final section deals with ethics and historical reading, and with ethics and contemporary reading. The book concludes with a discussion of selected practical topics.
