The reviewer has little to add to the comments of Wangensteen in his foreword to this little book. While he deals largely with the technic of various operations, the author also presents with reasonable logic his rationale for one or another procedure. None the less it is clear that the whole subject of operation for duodenal ulcer remains a complex one, and the exact reasons for relief and failure are often difficult to evaluate and must be involved with the psychologic aspects of the situation. There are many excellent illustrations and a bibliography.
