This short book will be of value to anyone interested in mediastinoscopy. It is concise, well illustrated, and easy to read and assimilate.
With a foreward by Eric Carlens, MD, the book proceeds from a brief history of techniques leading to mediastinoscopy through pertinent anatomy and operative steps to pathology in conditions often found at mediastinoscopy: bronchogenic carcinoma, sarcoid, tuberculosis, silicosis, mediastinal tumors, vascular anomalies. It also includes a short chapter on miscellaneous applications of mediastinoscopy, including pacemaker insertion, vagus nerve section, and esophageal carcinoma evaluation. The chapter on surgical technique is especially helpful because of its detail, clarity, and mention of operative difficulties and complications. This book is well worth reading.
