What People are Saying

“With this seventh edition of the book that bears his name, the esteemed Dr. Robert B. Rutherford has relinquished the senior editorial role to Drs. Jack Cronenwett and K. Wayne Johnston. In association with nine
coeditors, they have maintained the book's reputation as the most inclusive review of vascular medicine and surgery, thoroughly addressing medical and surgical management of patients with vascular diseases. This
edition, published in association with the Society for Vascular Surgery, includes Web site access to the full text and additional resources.”
