Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Melina R Kibbe, MD, RVT, RPVI (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: "(This review was prepared by James S.T. Yao, MD, and Melina R. Kibbe, MD, Northwestern Memorial Hospital.) This book describes the evaluation and treatment of diseases of the visceral circulation. In addition to devoting chapters to the anatomy, pathophysiology, and standard open surgical approaches for revascularization of the visceral circulation, the authors review the latest diagnostic technology as well as endovascular options for the treatment of these disease processes."
Purpose: The purpose is to provide one complete resource that can serve as a reference for physicians who treat patients with diseases of the visceral circulation. The authors strive to review the latest technology with respect to the evaluation and treatment of both acute and chronic visceral ischemia, including both surgical and endovascular approaches. The authors also include chapters on the management of mesenteric venous thrombosis, portal hypertension, ischemic colitis and angiodysplasia of the GI tract.
Audience: The contributing authors represent an international and multidisciplinary group of physicians who are credible authorities on this subject matter. The authors intend this book to be a valuable resource for vascular and gastrointestinal surgeons, gastroenterologists, and vascular radiologists. This book is also well suited for residents and fellows in training. Readers will find this book a valuable single reference for diseases of the visceral circulation, especially given that there are few other books that cover this breadth of material.
Features: The chapters on anatomy, pathophysiology, and diagnostic evaluations are well written and comprehensive. In particular, the chapter on imaging for visceral artery stenosis includes many useful figures. The chapters on the standard surgical management of acute and chronic visceral ischemia include a few figures of visceral vascular anatomy and of how to perform an endarterectomy, but there are no figures of the different types of bypass approaches for visceral revascularization. The authors do include a thorough discussion of the benefits of the different operative approaches. The discussions on endovascular treatments for visceral artery diseases are brief with relatively older references for a field that is evolving rapidly. The chapters on visceral artery aneurysm, mesenteric venous thrombosis, and portal hypertension are complete and thorough, as are the similarly comprehensive chapters on ischemic colitis and angiodysplasia.
Assessment: This book will serve as a valuable single resource for the anatomy, pathophysiology, and diagnostic evaluation of diseases of the visceral circulation. It will also serve as a good reference for visceral aneurysmal disease, portal HTN, and mesenteric venous thrombosis. The book is limited by its lack of illustrations in some chapters as well as the brief discussion on the different endovascular options for the treatment of these diseases. Furthermore, the references for the chapters on endovascular treatment options are mostly from 1999 or earlier. This is more likely a limitation of the publishing process than of the authors.
