The Thymus Gland

New or Used: 18 copies from $120.09
This book, written by selected experts who outline the surgical procedure, provides an up-to-date and concise review of the thymus gland for both the surgeon and the physician. The critical role of the thymus in the immune system is becoming increasingly well understood. Much of this knowledge is widely dispersed throughout the literature. Although thymectomy is well established as a surgical procedure, these advances need to be made available to the surgeon. This book offers neurologists and physicians a better understanding of the surgical aspects of the thymus.
