This book provides a clear, concise review of a wide range of general thoracic operations, both open and minimally invasive procedures. I can easily review for my cases the night before in just a few minutes. It is not sufficient as a definitive surgical atlas, ie, it does not give you all of the surgical options for every scenario, but at least one good one.

I was a 'fan' of "Operative Cardiac Surgery" by Gardner & Spray - the sister volume to this book in the same series. That Cardiac book was concise, clear and very well illustrated with truly helpful diagrams. It was ideal for a quick revision before the next operation, helping both rookie assistant and experienced surgeons visualize and mentally rehearse the procedure beforehand.

I expected much the same of this Thoracic book. Unfortunately, I came away a little disappointed. Perhaps it was the intention of the editors not to make this a lengthy textbook but a compact usable manual - but the text ends up TOO concise. There is little depth or background which would help place each operation in clinical context. There is very little detail regarding relevant surgical anatomy in many chapters. Significantly, most chapters completely omit 'tips & tricks' to help the reader. Why was it possible to do all this in "Operative Cardiac Surgery" but not in this Thoracic book ? Much of the time, the text would basically just say something like: 'you divide the vein ... then the artery ... then the bronchus'. Yes, we all know that - but one buys a book like this to gain technical insight into each operation, and that is sorely missing here. It is all the more disappointing because many of the chapter authors are world-renowned surgeons - and it is imaginable that if given more space to write they could have provided more enriching descriptions.

Ultimately, a book of this type is heavily reliant on the quality of illustrations. Crucially, this book fails in this regard. The figures are of similar style to those in "Operative Cardiac Surgery" and look neat and uncluttered. However, some of the drawings are blatantly WRONG. The anatomy of the structures illustrated in some chapters are inaccurate - the human anatomy simply doesn't look like this. The illustrator seems to be confused over whether vessels run over or under the lung in some places ! In other places, it is impossible to tell whether the pleural peel or lung itslef is being cut because of the color scheme used. This limits some of the chapters' usefulness as technical manuals.

The choice of chapters is also unbalanced. On one hand, there is a lot of overlap - such as "anterior mediastinal lesions" with "thymectomy"; or "VATS" with "VATS sympathectomy". On the other hand, much more coverage should have been allocated to some key topics. Is it realistic to lump all lung resection opeations together into just 2 chapters called "right-sided pulmonary resections" and another called "left-sided pulmonary resections" ? Both end up feeling very abbreviated and weak. Given the large scope of operations now done using VATS, is it wise to devote one chapter each to "VATS sympathectomy" and "VATS for pneumothorax", but just one other to everything else that is "VATS" ? The reader should decide for him/herself if this sort of distribution of information is what he/she is looking for.

There are some excetions to my cirticisms above. Some individual chapters are quite good. But overall, I am disappointed with "Operative Thoracic Surgery". Perhaps my expectations were too high, based on the quality of "Operative Cardiac Surgery" and the reputation of some of the chapter authors. Nonetheless, I can't help but conclude that I can find similar or better information elsewhere for less money. The book "Thoracic Surgical Oncology" is much better as a technical manual, and the "Expert Techniques" section on CTSNet also seems superior for offering tips & tricks.
