Published Review: "With the supplemental material on a companion website, this atlas is an important contribution to the acute care surgery literature. I expect that subsequent editions will include additional material on compartment syndromes and rib stabilization. The degree of detail varies in the text accompanying illustrations and there is clearly room for additional illustrations without increasing the length of the book."-David Dries, MD(University of Minnesota Medical School) Doody Review: 81/100
"The Atlas is an excellent reference material aimed at senior level surgical residents and fellows, as well as an excellent review for practicing general surgeons. I would recommend this book to upper level general surgical residents, fellows, and practicing surgeons who include trauma and emergency general surgery as part of their practice."
