The author has summarized the pathology, diagnosis and treatment of disorders of the peripheral circulation involving the extremities. The monograph was written for the general practitioner and internist, and the author has successfully presented such facts as will enable the physician to diagnose and treat circulatory disorders of the extremities and to know what conditions are amenable to surgery. After an introductory section on the anatomy and physiology of the circulation of the extremities, the author discusses the diagnosis, clinical features and treatment of circulatory insufficiency of the extremities secondary to vascular disease, neurogenic disturbances, embolism, thrombosis, freezing, aneurysms, varicosities, thrombophlebitis, elephantiasis, venous occlusion of the upper extremities and Sudeck's syndrome (localized atrophy of bone). The book is sound and well written and may be recommended to the general practitioner as well as the surgeon.
