This is a purely technical treatise on the surgery of blood vessels, including a short history of vascular operations and a description of instruments; homograft, heterograft, and plastic transplants; and the treatment of various forms of visceral and peripheral arterial syndromes. There is a short chapter on diagnostic methods. Photographs are well reproduced, but many of the diagrams are too small and too sketchy. The material is well organized and the bibliography is extensive. For the German-speaking surgeon, the book offers a good summary of present concepts. One may note with pride that most of the recent developments in this field come from English or American sources. There is little to recommend it for the reader in this hemisphere.
