Vascular and Endovascular Surgical Techniques

Arch Surg. 2002;137(2):224. doi:.
Text Size: A A A
Published online


This is an excellent reference textbook. Roger Greenhalgh, MD, and his 7 associate editors recruited 165 authors and coauthors to write 88 chapters, which are arranged in 24 sections. The authors are the leaders in their field. This book deals with both traditional open surgical approaches and the newer endovascular techniques. Many of the endovascular chapters represent the state of the art and include the currently accepted techniques for stented graft repair of abdominal aortic aneurysms in addition to techniques that are evolving, such as carotid stenting. The chapters dealing with open approaches of the aorta are particularly well illustrated, including Dr Stoney's "Transperitoneal Approaches to the Abdominal Aorta and Its Branches" as well as Ehrenfeld and Stoney's "Surgical Techniques for Visceral Artery Revascularization" and "Surgical Techniques for Renal Artery Revascularization." The chapter by Mannick and Whittemore on open abdominal aortic aneurysm is also nicely illustrated and contains an excellent description of the procedure. Dr Hollier's chapter on open thoracoabdominal techniques is particularly informative and represents the most up-to-date approach to this entity. Every chapter in this book is well done. I would recommend it as a reference both for practicing vascular surgeons and for vascular surgical trainees.
