This is the third volume of papers from the Association for Academic Surgery. The presentations which are included in the current book were delivered at the fourth annual meeting of the Association which was held in Denver in November 1970. This surgical society is composed of young, fulltime academic surgeons, less than 40 years of age when elected. The editors selected for publication 46 of the 64 papers that were delivered at the 1970 meeting.

The papers are primarily reports of clinical and laboratory research studies. The contents have been divided into sections, so that papers are grouped, approximately equally, into the following categories: I: Cardiovascular; II: Wound Healing and Shock; III: Neurosurgery; IV: Genitourinary; V: Transplantation; VI: Oncology; VII: Gastrointestinal and Biliary. The authors of the papers represent 39 teaching institutions in the United States and Canada and include most of the surgical specialties.
