The first hospital-affiliated surgical unit designed specifically for ambulatory surgery in the state of California began functioning as part of Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital in 1973. As this text is readied for publication, the unit is in its tenth year of operation. More than 20, 000 patients have undergone surgery there. The enthusiasm generated by ~\ir experience in Santa Barbara, along with the widespread, growing interest in ambulatory surgery, prompted us to undertake this volume. The first three chapters cover principles and administrative aspects, an esthesiology, and nursing in the ambulatory surgical center. Subsequent chap ters, the major portion of the text, provide detailed, meticulously illustrated descriptions of surgical procedures as they are done in the Santa Barbara Cottage Hospital Outpatient Surgical Center by the surgeons who work there. They reflect current practice and emphasize the techniques found most reliable by the surgeons who use them in the outpatient setting. This manual includes many of the operations most commonly performed in our facility and emphasizes the unique aspects of surgery and patient care in outpatient practice. The text is concise, practical, and based on our collective experience. The illustrations are, for the most part, drawn from the surgeon's perspective and faithfully render the actual appearance of the operative field during surgery. Supplementary cross-sectional and conceptual drawings are included to orient the reader.... 102a€“3 injection, 184 metatarsal, 172 perianal, 98 postoperative, 7, 8, 14 recovery room and, 16a€“17 sacrococcygeal, 109 sole, distal, ... paraphimosis, 145 a€“46 Penrose drain inguinal hernia repair and, 60, 61 intravenous regional anesthesia and, 186 V-Y advancement ... control, 17 pain relief, 16a€“17 procedure in, 24 record for, 12, 13 staff for, 22 Rectocele, colpoperineorrhaphy and, 119a€“21 Rectum.
