Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Courtney M Daly, MD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: This new edition of a comprehensive vascular surgery book last published in 2004 includes 31 new chapters and updates to existing chapters. It encompasses the fundamentals of vascular surgery as well as specific surgical techniques.
Purpose: This purpose is to focus on fundamental surgical principles with well-established vascular and endovascular techniques. This book meets and exceeds these objectives by providing a broad range of valuable chapters.
Audience: Written for vascular and endovascular surgeons, this book will serve as an important reference for both experienced surgeons and trainees in vascular surgery. The original author, Dr. Henry Haimovici, is one of the founding fathers of vascular surgery. Dr. Enrico Ascher has taken over as editor since Dr. Haimovici's death in 2001, and two experts in the field, Dr. Frank J. Veith and Dr. Peter Gloviczki, serve as coeditors.
Features: The first section on vascular imaging sets the stage to correlate basic surgical principles with clinical application by providing a comprehensive, yet practical overview of important vascular imaging techniques. The next section covers basic science, with each chapter including therapeutic implications. The following two sections, a highlight of this book, cover basic open techniques followed by open surgical exposure. These sections include several original chapters written by Dr. Haimovici that are full of instructive illustrations of technique and exposure. Additional chapters are written by experts in each technique, and new and updated chapters cover contemporary endovascular techniques and technology. Subsequent sections include disease-specific chapters written by experts in the field covering cerebral vascular insufficiency, aortic and iliac aneurysm, visceral vasculature, lower extremity occlusive and non-occlusive disease, vascular trauma, upper extremity disease, AV malformations, hemodialysis access, venous disease, and amputations.
Assessment: In the evolving field of vascular surgery, this book provides a good balance between longstanding fundamental surgical principles and developing endovascular technologies. It is an excellent reference for vascular surgeons or trainees, and stands up well to other established vascular books. This is an important update with new chapters as well as revisions to relevant chapters with a specific focus on endovascular therapies and venous disease.
