Overview

The authors chronicle the development of the gastrointestinal system b eginning with the embryology of the gastrointestinal tract through dev elopment of cells to hormones and enzymes. Each section provides detai led explanation of that stage of development so residents and clinicia ns can better understand the interrelationships of each structure. Spe cial attention is given to the latest cellular information and gene pr omoters in the regulation of intestinal development. Coverage of defec ts due to trauma and infections is also included.
