Product Description:
Not since it first published in 1858 has Gray's
Anatomy introduced so much innovation to the world of anatomical
references. A team of renowned clinicians, anatomists, and basic
scientists have radically transformed this classic resource to
incorporate all of the newest anatomical knowledge reorganized it by
body region to parallel clinical practice and added many new surface
anatomy, radiologic anatomy, and microanatomy images to complement the
exquisite artwork that the book is known for. Although there are now
many books called "Gray's Anatomy," only this 39th Edition carries on
the true lineage of the original text. And, only this 39th Edition
delivers so much pragmatic, clinically indispensable information. The
result is, once again, the world's definitive source on human anatomy..

  • A new organizationby body region, rather than by organ systemparallels the way physicians approach patients.
  • A new clinical emphasis ensures relevance to everyday practice.
  • Updates reflect the very latest understanding of
    the pelvic floor · the inner ear · the peritoneum · preimplantation
    embryology · assisted fertilization · smooth and cardiac muscle · wrist
    kinematics and kinetics · the temporomandibular joint · blood supply to
    the muscles and skin · topographical, clinico-pathological, and
    functional anatomy · cross-sectional and endoscopic imaging · the spread
    of infection along fascial planes · anatomical landmarks that
    facilitate differential diagnosis · key anatomical variants throughout
    the body · and many other crucial areas.
  • Almost 400 new illustrations nearly 2,000 in
    all, over half of them in full colordepict all structures with optimal
    clarity, includ¬ing surface anatomy, radiologic anatomy, and

that's new edition (39ª
is diferent of the 37ª. in this new edition the anatomy is broached in
chapters of topografical anatomy and not sistemic anatomy.
Topografical anatomy is most interesting for a medicine.
Summary: Iconic text lives up to its reputation
Rating: 5
The 39th edition of Gray's Anatomy covers all
aspects of human anatomy as well as integrating a comprehensive amount
of additional information including histology, embryology, physiology,
and pathology. Put together by renowned scientists and clinicians, this
iconic book is a must for any medical student. This book is IT!
Summary: buy it new
Rating: 5
i bought a used copy and its such a big book that
its spine does take a beating and its worth getting it new and with the
dvd and the subscription. if your gonna use all the resources its so
worth it, but the book is well laid out and easy to use, the pictures
are well done and the text is well easily scanable for fast reading
Summary: Amazing work by the authors and illustrators!!!
Rating: 5
This is an AMAZING book to say the least. I have to
say, that this book is not for someone who is just starting in the
medical field, as it is written in complex medical terminology. However,
if you are in the medical field, than this book is a great reference.
Every section of the body is broken down to the most minute detail. And
the illustrations/pictures are absolutely amazing; they make learning
anatomy fun and a little easier. I have to give kudos to all the
authors and illustrators of this text... well done! It's also good to
do exercises with
Summary: 39th Edition of Gray's Anatomy (Susan Standring, Ed.)
Rating: 4
Totally distinct from earlier editions is the
radically different organization of this classical textbook: the human
body is no longer described as containing different systems - the
skeleton, the vascular system, the nervous system,...- but the body is
now divided in regions. The reason for this radical change, chief editor
Susan Standring (King's College, London) explains, is that in the real
world, practising clinicians in their daily practice use a regional
approach, rather than a systemic view. Therefore, it is understood that
the new, 39th Edition of Gray's Anatomy is more adapted to the needs of
surgeons, radiologists and other clinicians, than to medical students
or scientists interested in the area of human anatomy. However, there
is some consideration of the editors for a section `systemic overview'.
So, the endocrine system, the blood (haematopoietic) and immune system
are not entirely overlooked.
In particular, when regarding the master gland of
the endocrine system, namely the pituitary, readers should know that
this organ may be found in the `region' of the diencephalon (Section
2.1.). So, neuroanatomists may rejoice that they finally regained
control over the capital region of the human body, and over all body
functions regulated by this region. Unfortunately, unlike the 38th
Edition, the editor of this section has decided to relapse into a
terminology that was already obsolete 15 years ago. `Chromophobic' cells
belong to the dark ages when new imaging techniques were still looming
for their curious but ignorant discoverers. Bibliographic references
are reduced to a baseline level. This would result in insufficient
source material for research purposes, but, on the other hand, the
references are concise enough for users that may feel comfortable with a
general slowing down of scientific progress.
However, many, many advantages of the newly revised
topics may be found in this 39th Edition. For those interested in the
anatomy of the pelvic floor, the inner ear, or the organization of the
peritoneum, Gray's Anatomy will meet their expectations. Also shortcuts
to topics like assisted fertilization, preimplantation embryology are
included, although it never has been easy being both at the cutting edge
and also a textbook that bridges the generation gaps. Therefore,
together with many, I will be looking forward to the 40th Edition.
