Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Frederic E. Eckhauser, MD (University of Michigan Medical School)
Description: This book outlines management strategies for patients with complications of large and small bowel diverticular disease. The contents are grouped into categories, including diagnostic dilemmas, technical problems, selected patient populations, and unusual problems, which makes it easier for the reader to quickly identify sections that contain specific information relevant to individual patient problems.
Purpose: The purpose is to present an overview of complicated diverticular disease using specific patient-based illustrative cases to focus discussions concerning evaluation and treatment alternatives.
Audience: The book is written for clinical practitioners, but the use of patient-based illustrative cases makes it an excellent resource and teaching tool for surgical residents and medical students. Non-surgeons will probably not fully appreciate the usefulness of this particular book.
Features: It uses appropriate and specific figures and tables to reinforce particular points regarding diagnosis and management. In many instances, endoscopic photographs are clarified by accompanying line drawings. Radiographs and figures are clear and accompanied by concise legends. A "key points" section that summarizes the relevant clinical information precedes each chapter. This is very useful for providing a quick and concise overview.
Assessment: This book provides pertinent and well organized information concerning the management of complex diverticular disease. Its content and design make it especially useful for surgical residents and practitioners. It is well written and provides clear and concise figures to underscore important points.

A reference on congenital and acquired diverticular disease of the small and large bowel, focusing predominantly on colonic diverticulosis, but including small-bowel diverticula as well. Topics are presented as clinical scenarios encountered in practice. Section I deals with diagnostic dilemmas, and Section II presents challenging technical problems resulting from diverticulitis and details surgical therapeutic options with their respective complications. Section III presents problems with selected patient populations, and Section IV deals with unusual problems, including giant colonic diverticula and small-bowel diverticular disease. Features b&w photos, key points, comments at the end of cases, and annotated references. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
