In this fine monograph the author achieves his prefaced objective, to present a concise and balanced account of recent developments in thromboembolism. Most of his text is derived from the latest pertinent literature, and a comparable summary of this subject is not available elsewhere.
The book can be faulted on several minor points. Dr. Pitney is too simplistic in some phrases; for example, "It is well known that pulmonary embolism can occur when the legs are clinically normal," and too categorical in others, such as, "Pulmonary infarction does not occur in pulmonary embolism in the absence of pulmonary venous congestion."
