The Atlas of Vascular Surgery is an excellent text and would be a superb addition to any surgical department library. The illustrations are precise and clearly feature the important elements that must be understood and performed for successful outcomes. The commentary is crisp, focused, and directs the reader to the basic concepts and objectives of any given procedure. This atlas will serve as an excellent personal reference text for senior surgical residents, vascular fellows, and general surgeons who perform vascular surgery in their practice. Try it, I guarantee you will like it.
