Anatomic Exposures in Vascular Surgery, Fourth Edition

by R. James Valentine, MD, FACS

Featuring more than 550 full-color, 3-dimensional drawings of anatomic exposures for every open vascular procedure you’re likely to perform, Anatomic Exposures in Vascular Surgery, 4th Edition, clearly and uniquely depicts the anatomy the vascular or general surgeon will see in the operating room. In practical detail, it describes and shows the anatomic relationships of blood vessels and surrounding fascia, muscles, and nerves that surgeons should be familiar with when operating on the vascular system, as well as how best to approach the vessels through and around those surrounding tissues. Concise, focused text accompanies each drawing on the same page, making information easy to find and digest.
