Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: G. Robert Mason, MD (Loyola University Medical Center)
Description: This atlas of general thoracic surgery is the eighth and last atlas in a series from this publisher under the editorial guidance of David B. Skinner, M.D. The authors are recognized in their fields.
Purpose: The editor describes the intent of this series of atlases as providing a "general education in surgery," providing a "brief and highly technical" description of surgical techniques that may not have been part of a residency or practice experience, such that "the surgical resident or practitioner who seriously wishes to add excellent techniques to his or her practice base," may do so.
Audience: The editor, as previously noted, recommends this atlas for both thoracic surgery residents and practitioners.
Features: The text is attractive and well constructed. The illustrations are done by one artist and are clear and consistent. The table of contents and index are complete and easy to use. There is no bibliography.
Assessment: The variety of topics covered is broad and the illustrations are excellent. The text is terse and presumes a level of knowledge and experience on the reader's part. Similarly, the illustrations are limited and not step-by-step for the novice, but rather illustrate only the most important elements of the procedure. The addition of a bibliography would be helpful for those who wish a greater depth of presentation.
