Instead of "Surgery of the Pancreas," a more appropriate title for this monograph would be "Surgical Diseases of the Pancreas," as of 427 pages only one and one half (in the chapter on injuries of the gland) are devoted to the description of the surgical approach. There are chapters on traumas of the pancreas, acute pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis, cysts, syphilis, tuberculosis, stone formation, fistulas, malignant tumors and anatomic anomalies of the gland. In each chapter a short historical review is followed by a discussion of the etiology, pathologic anatomy, pathogenesis, clinical manifestations and treatment of the described lesion. Case reports and statistical data are abundant, illustrations scanty; numerous writers are mentioned by name, but bibliographic references are lacking, certainly an inexcusable omission in a monographic type of work. The recent trend to a more conservative treatment, postponing the operation till the "shock stage" is passed, did not receive any consideration.
