Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Jessica Anne McPherson, B.S., M.D.(Washington University School of Medicine)
Description: The third edition of this atlas of pelvic and abdominal anatomy provides a perfect combination of brief but complete written text and beautiful illustrations. Previous editions were published in 2006 and 2001.
Purpose: The purpose is to provide detailed and accurate illustrations of anatomy encountered in gynecologic and other pelvic surgery. This atlas is essential to any surgeon interested in expanding and perfecting their knowledge of anatomy outside of the operating room. The authors have excelled at providing a complete and comprehensive look at pelvic anatomy and gynecologic surgery.
Audience: It is the perfect book for obstetrics/gynecology residents looking for a complete, easy-to-read, appealing atlas of pelvic anatomy. Any practitioner looking to expand, brush up on, or perfect their knowledge of pelvic anatomy should have a copy. Because of the details that relate the illustrations to actual surgical procedures, the atlas may be too specific for students looking to get a broad overview of pelvic anatomy, but the book is outstanding for residents and practitioners.
Features: The book covers, in an organized, easy-to-follow fashion, pelvic and abdominal anatomy, including such details as nerve supply and blood supply, with the use of both actual (cadaver and real time images) and illustrator-created depictions of anatomy. The atlas has chapters dedicated to robotic and laparoscopic surgery, along with other topics of interest to gynecologic surgeons, such as surgical instruments and complications. This atlas does a particularly good job detailing anatomy in a way that is appropriate for surgeons. The anatomy is depicted while walking readers through actual surgical procedures. Using cadaveric and other real life illustrations can sometimes be a drawback as it can be difficult to actually appreciate the details of the anatomy, but this atlas overcomes this by incorporating illustrations to supplement and enhance the cadaveric and other images. The atlas is beautifully done and very appealing to the eye.
Assessment: This is the best atlas I have encountered for pelvic anatomy. Since medical school, I have looked for an atlas to replace Netter's, as I needed more detail and more focus on the pelvis and abdomen, and now I have found it. The quality of the illustrations, the accuracy, the detail, and the organization of the book are excellent. I feel confident that using this book as a reference and tool prior to operating and for review will greatly enhance my understanding of pelvic anatomy. As gynecologic surgery changes, i.e., with the addition of the robot, it remains important to continue to update and revise the atlas.
