Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Wayne L. De Vos, MD, PhD (Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine)
Description: Based on his own extensive experience as a colon and rectal surgeon, the author has successfully sought to provide a reference book on lower gastrointestinal endoscopy that doubles as a teaching text for the endoscopy student and a reference text for the experienced endoscopist.
Purpose: This technique is a rewarding procedure that possesses easily identifiable clinical benefit. Central to the execution of the well-performed examination is personal experience; however, access to a solid reference in the basics and applications of the procedure is also a critical component. The author has succeeded in providing both.
Audience: The early chapters, illustrated with crisp, clear photos and figures, are very useful for the early practitioner who is interested in setting up or is adapting to an existing endoscopy lab. The middle chapters are useful for the student of endoscopy and the occasional practitioner as well as for the experienced endoscopist reinvestigating a seldom-used technique or wishing to add new tricks to his or her armamentarium, as in the chapter covering (among other topics) the use of adrenaline and dye, the application of laser, and the technique of clip application for bleeding and marking. The remaining chapters, also accompanied by beautifully reproduced endoscopic photographs, will be an excellent reference for the endoscopist at any level.
Features: In part one, six chapters address the basic techniques of lower GI endoscopy, describing the many types of endoscopes and accessories available, detailing how to set up and maintain an endoscopy room and finishing with a chapter on endoscopic indications and contraindications. Part two begins with a chapter on patient preparation and continues with several excellent, detailed chapters on techniques of the different forms of endoscopy and the treatment of polyps. Finally, part three provides an in-depth review of the many applications of lower GI endoscopy in a problem-based format. The illustrations are accompanied by complete, descriptive legends that make even browsing throughout the book educational.
Assessment: This enjoyable, complete, solidly fabricated, and excellently illustrated book belongs on every reference shelf as well as on the shelf of any practitioner of endoscopy.

Booknews
Provides a base of knowledge on which readers may build, and describes the techniques involved in endoscopy of the lower GI tract. Written from a surgical perspective, the volume is divided into three sections: a background, in which history, instrumentation, and preparation for endoscopy are discussed; a technical section, where practical instruction in endoscopy is given and the prevention and management of complications are detailed; and a section covering application of the techniques to common colorectal diseases. Thoroughly and excellently illustrated, largely in color. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
