Abstract: The final handbook in a series of three guides to fundamental surgery and anaesthesia for a district hospital. The manual covers the principles, technical procedures, and equipment needed to perform special surgical operations. Separate sections deal with operations in obstetrics and gynaecology, such as caesarean section, obstructed labour and ruptured ectopic pregnancy orthopaedics and traumatology, including the treatment of fractures, dislocations and acute infections of bones and joints. Procedures described are intended to help save lives in situations where surgical skills, experience, and resources are limited
