With so many vascular anatomy and angiograpic atlases already published, it is hard to get excited about a new one. The Atlas by Uflacker and Feldman, however, has many unique features that deserve a look. This substantial book is an 812-page hard-covered edition, with thick glossy pages. The angiograms promise to make radiologists and vascular surgeons envious (for different reasons), and Falcetti's line-art and color illustrations are stunning. There are abundant pearls presented, such as the detailed anatomy of aortic vasa vasorum, arterial and venous anatomy of the spinal cord and pulmonary acinus, lymphatic drainage of the extremities, and many organs such as the pancreas and stomach. At times, the coverage seemed almost too ambitious with their extensive treatment of cardiac vascular anatomy, pulmonary bronchial blood supply, and the blood supply to the common duct and gonads, but at the same time you might need these beautiful illustrations.
