This short but complete monograph on the technical procedures involved in the surgery of complicated duodenal and jejunal ulcer undoubtedly will be of value to the younger surgeon whose own experience as yet has not permitted him to develop a technic of his own. In this work Dr. Nissen has demonstrated clearly and concisely the procedures which have been successful in his hands. The illustrations are sufficiently detailed to permit rapid yet thorough comprehension, and the rationale for each step is discussed from several points of view, many of which differ from his own, but the issues are presented clearly and logically for the discrimination of the reader. The book is recommended to the younger gastrointestinal surgeon; however, the subject matter and interesting style of the author should make it attractive to the gastroenterologist as well.
