At present, gamma irradiation has yet to be used in the processing of tissue
allografts by all tissue banks. The Massachusetts General Hospital Tissue
Bank inBoston—set up in 1990 by the pioneerDrHenry J.Mankin—is still
a surgical tissue bank employing sterile procurement and processing techniques,
but not gamma irradiation (Mankin was succeeded by Dr William
Tomford). Similarly, in Latin America, the Musculoskeletal Tissue Bank in
Latin Hospital, Buenos Aires, Argentina, set up by another famous pioneer
Dr Ottolenghi (now run by Dr Musculo), is also a surgical tissue bank.
The latest diagnostic and therapeutic modalities in the management of coronary artery dis‐
ease by coronary artery bypass graft surgery and by percutaneous coronary intervention
with stenting and in the interventional management of other atherosclerotic vascular disease
have led to a reduction in cardiovascular mortality and morbidity. This book entitled Artery
Bypass provides an excellent update on these advances which every physician seeing pa‐
tients with atherosclerotic vascular disease should be familiar with.

Patients who lose healthy bone tissue as a result of inflammation or trauma need bone
regenerative/reconstructive surgery in order to recover the function of the lost bone. To
regenerate the lost bone tissue, autologous bone grafting is the current gold standard,
though this technique is a great burden for patients because transplantable autologous bone
must be harvested from a healthy site, which causes donor site morbidity and pain.
