Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This is the 16th edition of one of the standards for surgical education over the last half century.
Purpose: Provided is a review of the scientific foundation of surgery placed in clinical context for practitioners at various levels.
Audience: Medical students, house officers, and practicing surgeons may benefit from this work. In a shift from the several previous editions, editorship and authorship is centered about the University of Texas and companion institutions.
Features: Seventeen hundred pages and 73 chapters are found in this attractive hardbound work. Chapter content is divided into 13 sections. Traditional surgical organization is covered, beginning with basic principles and perioperative care. Subsequent sections include oncology, trauma endocrine surgery, and vascular thoracic abdominal problems with a spattering of discussions on subspecialty topics including pediatrics, neurosurgery, plastic surgery. and genitourinary problems. Contributors begin chapters with a word outline and there are changes in texture of type to separate subheadings. Illustrations and line drawings are black-and-white and reproduce with good quality. Reference lists are appropriate for each chapter and contain original work dating to within two years of publication. Front pages include a table of contents with chapter and author listings and divisions according to content sections. A detailed index with specific listings for illustrations and tables is found at the end of the book.
Assessment: The impact of new editorial leadership is unmistakable in this 16th edition. In all, 600 pages and much of the detail surrounding management of cardiothoracic disease has been eliminated in this edition when compared to the last produced four years ago. Production quality has been maintained and content updated with inclusion of over 100 new authors. I was surprised at the number of editing errors (one chapter contained errors in nearly every reference citation). As these problems are resolved, this book will continue as a standard for teachers and students.

Journal of the American Medical Association
...This reviewer favors looking at criteria that establish a text as a valuable resource for surgical residents and senior medical students...The version edited by Townsend et al ... is very much such a resource. It is a superbly written clinical authority, replete with supportive basic science data and strong background in surgical history... It is an up-to-date textbook and invaluable reference for the practicing surgeon, as well...

I searched for specific chapters that I could consider exceptional because of readability, comprehensiveness, quality of illustrations, or other characteristics. I was unsuccessful, as the authors and editorial staff have achieved uniform excellence throughout the book. The presentation is concise yet complete in all areas...
