Book News Annotation:

Rutherford (Concord Hospital, New Hampshire) profiles some 700 surgical instruments on order to aid medical students in ready recognition. A notable feature of the photographs that accompany each entry is that they provide a focus on the tips of the instruments such that similar instruments are more easily differentiated. Entries include official names; common nicknames; and descriptions of instrument features, categories, and uses. The volume has been produced with plastic spiral binding.
