The increasing volume of coronary artery surgery being performed in institutions large and small has required that the skills of coronary angiography be more widely disseminated. This monograph addresses itself to that need. An attempt has been made to discuss all aspects of the subject including history, roentgenographic and catheterization equipment and techniques, normal and anomalous anatomy, diseases of the coronary arteries, and complications of angiography.

The book is most successful in its discussion of the normal roentgenographic coronary artery anatomy. It is difficult to find the information concontained in this section between the covers of any other text. The long discussion of atheromatous disease and collateral pathways in obstructive disease is also to be highly recommended. The illustrations are of high quality and the many line drawings are superb.

Less successful is the discussion of roentgenographic equipment and catheter technique. The authors err, I believe, in recommending specific products
