Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: David J. Dries, MD (University of Minnesota Medical School)
Description: This is the first edition of a narrative and atlas of surgical techniques used in initial management of injury to the neck, torso, and cardiovascular system.
Purpose: This is a reference for the surgeon called upon to provide care for the injured patient. Illustrations highlight key points supplemented by concise text.
Audience: Tools such as this are most appropriate for the trainee and practitioner having occasional contact with trauma. All authors are faculty members at the University of Southern California Medical Center.
Features: This attractively bound volume is divided into 10 chapters, starting with a general assessment and followed by a description of operative techniques by organ system, beginning with the gastrointestinal tract, liver, pancreas, and spleen. Thoracic, cardiovascular, genitourinary, and burn injuries complete this work. The illustrations are black-and-white line drawings of good quality and reproductions of radiographs. An adequate number of references are provided overall, but these are unevenly distributed among the chapters. The references date to within one year of publication and emphasize the organ injury scales of the American Association for the Surgery of Trauma. The table of contents is brief, but an adequately detailed index is provided.
Assessment: This atlas may supplement the core volumes on the reference shelf of the trainee or practitioner in trauma. The illustration quality is good and the references appropriately emphasize current organ injury scaling systems. However, with regard to pancreatic trauma, initial airway management, and the approach to major vascular injuries about the liver, the methods presented may represent institutional, but not national, consensus. Valuable additional details regarding the operative approach to some of the injuries described could be provided without a significant increase in the size of this text.
