Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer:Mila Hui Ju, MD(Northwestern Memorial Hospital)
Description:Over 80 internationally renowned vascular surgeons and interventional radiologists have contributed to this book, which addresses practical issues in vascular surgery. With this update of their 2004 edition, the editors also have made an effort to make it more reader-friendly.
Purpose:The editors and contributors have written a book that can be read cover-to-cover in a short amount of time that addresses the main topics in both vascular and endovascular surgery, while omitting the rarities. As many of its readers will sit for vascular examinations, the editors have included clinical vignettes and a question bank for studying.
Audience:This book is fantastic for vascular and general surgery residents as well as anyone who desires a comprehensive overview of the main topics in vascular surgery. It serves as a great review for vascular fellows and practicing physicians in preparation for examinations.
Features:The first of the book's 10 sections provides a background of vascular surgery from its history to its biology and technologies. Sections 2 to 4 cover the main topics of vascular intervention on the upper and lower extremities. Section 5 concentrates on the mesenteric vascular diseases, while section 6 focuses on renovascular diseases. Section 7 is devoted to aortic and peripheral aneurysms, and section 8 is dedicated to cerebrovascular disease. Common vascular complications are covered in section 9. The book ends with a section on venous disease and lymphedema. Both open vascular and endovascular surgeries are covered comprehensively in each section. Anatomic drawings, radiological images, and tables that appear in the book also can be found on the book's website. Furthermore, the online question bank can be used to review for certification and recertification examinations.
Assessment:The editors took suggestions from readers of the first edition and added more topics and discussions, including information for cardiologists and vascular internists, to expand the audience. The book is written in a highly structured fashion so that readers know what to expect next as they go through the chapters. Overall, this book meets the needs of anyone who wants a quick yet comprehensive review of open vascular and endovascular surgeries.
