G. Robert Mason
This text covers a wide variety of topics in thoracic surgery, emphasizing newer techniques and controversial topics. The authors seek to summarize in more detail many of the advances that have been made in thoracic surgery. The intended audience is surgeons who require special expertise in thoracic surgery. I concur. The authors are credible experts, some quite well known in their field. Topics as diverse as lung transplantation, cancer management, gene therapy, and ECMO are covered in 57 chapters, cancer management and transplantation most in depth. There is a CD-ROM included with complete text and illustrations as well as searchable PDF files. The line drawings are good; the imaging studies less so. The index is quite adequate. This is an excellent text for the practicing thoracic surgeon who will find many, if not all, of the chapters of interest and benefit.

Specialists summarize recent developments in the field and offer particular detail on topics and treatments that may not be widely used in daily practice. They discuss such aspects as acute respiratory distress syndrome, diagnostic and therapeutic bronchoscopy, staging and prognosis in lung cancer, HIV patients, pulmonary metastases, acquired tracheoesophageal fistula, massive hemoptysis, surgery for emphysema, living-donor lung transplantation for cystic fibrosis, thoracic pheochromocytoma, esophageal anastomotic leaks, and lessons learned from and future prospects for lung xenotransplantation. The accompanying CD-ROM contains the entire text and illustrations in searchable PDF files. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
