Overview

This second edition of a very successful vascular surgery text was developed in order to address significant changes that have occurred in contemporary vascular surgery and to highlight new information that has developed regarding vascular imaging, interventional and endovascular procedures. The overall length of the text is slightly shorter than the first edition with relevant core chapters being retained to emphasize the basic science nature of the text, with approximately 60% of the material undergoing major revisions or being new chapters.

The significant change from the first text is an emphasis on vascular pathology and physiology that is relevant to current practice including information that is currently included on the vascular board examinations. A new emphasis on endovascular therapies has been added by including five chapters on endovascular techniques and an additional section with six chapters comparing conventional vascular reconstruction to endovascular methods. These new chapters address the most important issue in contemporary vascular surgery, i.e., the role of endovascular methods in treating vascular lesions and the impact that this has on training and credentialing. A unique aspect of this book differentiating it from other texts is a comparison of conventional methods with the endovascular techniques.

Overall the text provides a comprehensive perspective of contemporary vascular surgery and future perspectives. The authors are preeminent in the field and are most capable for addressing the assigned topics with the goals being to provide an updated and forward looking text that accommodates the needs of practicing and training vascular surgeons.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

Spencer W. Galt
This book is a brief and concise review of basic science and clinical correlates in vascular surgery. Additionally, clinical management of commonly encountered scenarios, such as prophylactic antibiotics and cardiac dysrhythmias, is covered. The purpose is to systematically address basic science topics in vascular surgery and to correlate the principles to the treatment of clinical disease, and because the database in vascular biology is rapidly expanding, this is a worthwhile endeavor. There is a substantial amount of information regarding pathophysiology and natural history of vascular disease. However, the book falls short of its goal to correlate the principles to the treatment of clinical disease because therapeutics are largely absent from most chapters. The text is targeted for vascular surgery residents and vascular surgeons. It would be particularly useful to those preparing for the vascular surgery boards, and senior residents in general surgery will also find it helpful. The authors and contributors are acknowledged experts in their respective areas. The book includes black-and-white illustrations as well as some well presented color plates. The references are voluminous, pertinent, and current. Despite falling somewhat short of its stated goal with regard to treatment, this is a useful textbook for review of pathophysiology and natural history written in a clear and concise fashion.

A text for students and practitioners of vascular surgery, systematically addressing basic science topics in vascular surgery and correlating the principles to treatment of clinical disease. The 53 contributed chapters are grouped in seven sections: basic science components of vascular disorders (8 chapters); vascular pathology and physiology (25 chapters); noninvasive vascular diagnostics (6 chapters); invasive vascular diagnostics (3 chapters); medical management (4 chapters); perioperative monitoring and management (6 chapters); and statistics for vascular surgeons (1 chapter). Thoroughly illustrated in b&w. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
