These thirty debates, counterparts to a sister set in internal medicine, cover mainly topics that are truly surgical but some of them are pertinent to issues in internal medicine: the randomized controlled clinical trial; prophylactic subtotal parathyroidectomy; operative treatment for duodenal ulcer; the clinically solitary thyroid nodule; papillary carcinoma of the thyroid; coronary-artery bypass surgery; postoperative pulmonary embolism; symptomatic hiatal hernia; hyperthyroidism; hyperlipidemia; staging of Hodgkin's disease; renovascular hypertension.
