This book is by 24 surgeons, 5 neurologists, 1 internist, 1 radiologist, and 1 pathologist. A more appropriate title would be Surgical Management of Extracranial Cerebrovascular Disease, because more than 450 of the well-written and illustrated pages deal with the cervical portion of the cerebral circulation. For example, the basilar artery is not indexed, the vertebral artery is given 14 lines, the vertebrobasilar system is given 24 lines, and the carotid artery is given 127 lines of indexing. Slightly more than half a page is devoted to intracranial berry aneurysms and multi-infarction dementia.
