Extract

The fifth edition of Nyhus and Condon's Hernia by Robert J. Fitzgibbons, Jr, MD, and A. Gerson Greenburg, MD, PhD, is a well-prepared and attractive book. It is the first edition not edited by the original authors, Nyhus and Condon. There are 72 national and international contributors covering a variety of old and new topics in 650 pages. This book is in readable print and reflects recent advances in a field significantly affected by research, the use of prostheses, and minimally invasive surgery. The figures are well crafted, and the color plates are excellent. The addition of color-coded images of Doppler sonography and clear schematic anatomical representations give this book a superior edge. The tables are useable and the references are relevant. Of particular interest are one of the initial chapters on why human beings develop groin hernias, by Read, and the appendices, which deal with human rights, biotechnical designs, and data recording.
