Gastroenterology and Hepatology: The Comprehensive Visual Reference is an ambitious eight-volume collection of images (supported by relatively brief text) that pictorially display the gastrointestinal tract, liver, biliary tree, and pancreas in health and disease, both in children and adults. The images include not only traditional photographs, but also charts, tables, drawings, algorithms, and diagrams. The present volume is devoted to the liver, liver diseases, and their treatment, including transplantation. The chapters are constructed like lectures, interweaving basic concepts with results of clinical observations and clinical trials. Beautifully produced and clearly presented. 10x12.5" Annotation c.
