Scarce. First edition. An interesting Soviet edition dedicated to the gastric cancer surgery.
Written by the Privatdozent and the employee of the Cancer Institute Alexander Vereshchinsky (1894-) in 1932, this book represents an atlas and explanatory text to the technique of resection of the pyloric part of the stomach in gastric cancer. The edition is the extended version of the article 1119 sluchayev raka zheludka [i.e. 1119 Cases of Stomach Cancer] written by Vereshchinsky and published in the magazine Vestnik khirurgii [i.e. Surgery Herald] in 1929. The great interest shown by readers to the article prompted the author to publish an extended version of the text. The present work provides a systematic description, illustrated with a large number of black and white drawings (47), of individual stages of gastric resections in the form in which this operation was carried out in the Clinical Department of the Oncological Institute. The book serves as an outcome of yearslong experience of its author and Professor N. N. Petrov in the aforementioned field. The edition can be divided into two sections: The classic technique of resection of the pyloric part of the stomach according to the Reichel-Polia-Balfour method as used in the Clinical Department of the Cancer Institute and an Atlas. The first chapter of the book is organized in accordance with the illustrations presented in the Atlas and features a detailed explanation of each and every step of the operation.
