The first edition published in 1999, was described as a "longed for addition to the literature", and as a text that "cannot be compared with any other book on vascular surgery" (Lancet 2000; 355: 1918). At the time it was different; a book to help busy clinicians sift through surgical research and use it to make sensible decisions for their clinical practice. The challenge for this second edition is to produce something better still. The new edition is larger and more comprehensive, thanks to valuable suggestions from colleagues and reviewers. The text is as accessible as possible, with short chapters, recommendations for management, comprehensive referencing and full colour illustration. It belongs on the shelf, or in the briefcase of everyone who has to treat patients with vascular disease.
Here is what the experts said about the first edition:
- "I would highly recommend this book to all physicians interested in
state of the art of vascular surgery and to those who want to know the current
therapeutic management of vascular diseases."
- "..... if you are looking for important new research ideas, it would
be well worth persuading your trainer to buy it for you."
European Journal of Vascular and Endovascular Surgery
- "..... an excellent text which will be useful for both trainees and
practising consultant vascular surgeons ....."
British Journal of Surgery
- "In an era when hospital is being compared to hospital and surgeon to
surgeon, the information compiled in this type of book is a 'must know' for
all vascular surgeons practising in today's climate of evidence-based medicine."
Canadian Journal of Surgery
