For all types of disease, the reader will find clear "how-to-do-it" guidance on the full range of surgical techniques. Additional chapters offer focused background on anatomy, imaging, and laboratory testing of value to both trainees and practitioners in esophageal surgery. Contributing authors are internationally known experts, and each chapter concludes with commentary by one of the editors or another senior authority.

"...leading authorities cover the principles of operative techniques, results, and future trends along with relevant basic science, history and etiology, diagnosis & therapeutic decisions, and diagnostic techniques and therapy."

Editorial Reviews

G. Robert Mason
This book covers the full range of esophageal disease and therapy, including anatomic, physiologic, and pathologic bases, emphasizing surgical therapy. The editors planned to create the best possible format for a book of value to the ""practicing thoracic surgeon, the residents in training, and for those physicians working in important collaborative specialties such as pulmonology and gastroenterology."" It is one of a set of two texts, the other entitled Thoracic Surgery. It is a worthwhile endeavor, has been well done, and meets the authors' objectives. The intended audience is as noted above. The authors are well known in their fields and have produced a very useable and worthwhile text for all interested in diseases of the esophagus. The book is well written, well organized, and covers the material thoroughly. A minor deficit is the minimal treatment of external penetrating neck trauma. The paper is of medium grade and the illustrations all in black-and-white. As a result, the line drawings are clear and easily interpreted, but the radiographs and photographs are less good. The index and table of contents are clear and accurate. The bibliographies at the end of each chapter are arranged alphabetically; the references are cited in the in text by name and date. The references are generally current through 1992, with a few from 1993. There have been relatively few books that cover the breadth of esophageal disease in any depth, certainly none in recent years of the quality of this work. It is the best reference on esophageal surgery available at this time, in my opinion.
Booknews
A unified reference for practicing thoracic surgeons, alimentary tract surgeons, and gastroenterologists. The format includes a historical note with separately selected historical readings, followed by the usual sequences of anatomy, physiology or other relevant basic science, clinical presentation and diagnosis, management, and results. Whenever available, long-term results are presented. A special feature includes commentary by the chapter author concerning areas of controversy and anticipated future change. Technical chapters describe the common operations of esophageal surgery, with clear illustrations (b&w) and practical suggestions included for quick reference, within a comprehensive text. A companion volume, Thoracic Surgery (0-443-08798-9), encompasses surgery of the airways, lungs, chest wall, and mediastinum. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
