Overview

Gastrointestinal Disease: An Endoscopic Approach, Second Edition has been completely revised and updated into a one-volume clinical reference text. Unlike others on this topic, this text demonstrates how the endoscope incorporates pathophysiology, diagnostic, and treatment modalities into endoscopic practice. This new edition includes more than 1200 full-color photographs, endoscopic images, and line drawings that help illustrate and enhance the clarity of some of the elaborate procedures and diagnoses of gastroenterology. Edited by six prestigious gastroenterologists and with many new and fully updated chapters that are written by 134 of the most prominent names in the field of GI, this new edition is a comprehensive text that brings gastroenterology up-to-date in the fast paced world of endoscopy. Gastrointestinal Disease: An Endoscopic Approach, Second Edition concentrates more on the practical hands-on instructions in the endoscopic diagnosis and treatment of this disease. This expanded and improved text covers a wide range of gastroenterology topics such as the common gastritis, GERD and infectious diseases, benign and malignant lesions of the esophagus, the stomach, the intestines, and the pancreas and biliary tree. Special chapters, such as the Designing Clinical Research in Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, The Prevention of Infection Following Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, Complications of Peptic Ulcer Disease, and Credentialing for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, help make this book useful as a learning text, as well as a professional's reference. This innovative text is an invaluable tool in the endoscopy collection and should be on the bookshelf of all gastroenterologists, surgeons, and internists that treat patients with gastrointestinal diseases.

The book contains predominantly black-and-white illustrations, with some color illustrations.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Willem J de Villiers, MD, PhD, MHCM (University of Kentucky College of Medicine)
Description: This book has been completely revised and updated into a one-volume clinical reference highlighting the incorporation of pathophysiology, diagnostic, and treatment modalities into endoscopic practice. The new edition includes more than 1,200 full-color photographs, endoscopic images, and line drawings that help illustrate and enhance the clarity of some of the elaborate procedures and diagnoses of gastroenterology. The first edition was published in 1997 by Blackwell Science.
Purpose: Although endoscopy constitutes a prominent part of the diagnosis and treatment of GI and hepatobiliary diseases, the authors wish to emphasize the basic principles for the appropriate use of this technology. The book succeeds very nicely in blending endoscopic principles and practice with the underlying pathophysiology, presentation and treatment of GI diseases. It is superbly illustrated and, together with the accompanying photo CD-ROM, makes for an outstanding educational tool.
Audience: This book is aimed at medical students, residents, fellows, and practitioners who care for patients with gastrointestinal and hepatic diseases. It is edited by six prestigious gastroenterologists and, with many new and fully updated chapters that are written by 134 of the most prominent names in the field of GI, this new edition is a comprehensive endoscopic book that brings the field up-to-date.
Features: The book concentrates more on the practical hands-on instructions in the endoscopic diagnosis and treatment of GI disease. The book covers a wide range of gastroenterology topics such as common gastritis, GERD and infectious diseases, benign and malignant lesions of the esophagus, the stomach, the intestines, and the pancreas and biliary tree. Special chapters, such as the ones on designing clinical research in gastrointestinal endoscopy, the prevention of infection following gastrointestinal endoscopy, complications of peptic ulcer disease, and credentialing for gastrointestinal endoscopy, increase its use as a learning text, as well as a professional's reference. The superb illustrations, features such as Key Points and Tricks of the Trade in each chapter, as well as the accompanying photo CD-ROM, all add to its appeal.
Assessment: This second edition is a justified and improved model. The accompanying photo CD-ROM contains an atlas of endoscopic photographs that will serve as excellent teaching tools for students, house officers, fellows and collegial instruction and training. This innovative book is an invaluable addition to the endoscopy collection and should be on the bookshelf of all gastroenterologists, surgeons, and internists who treat patients with gastrointestinal diseases.

From The Critics
This photo CD-ROM (for PC or Mac) was prepared to accompany the second edition of the text, which is now available (ISBN 1-55642-511-2). Only images are presented here (no text): some 1,200 photos, endoscopic images, and line drawings, in a format useful for presentations. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR
Booknews
This comprehensive two-volume reference presents what is known about the use of the endoscope to answer clinical questions regarding gastrointestinal disease. The initial usage of gastrointestinal endoscopy was purely diagnostic, but a breakthrough came with therapeutic interventions, and the future of its use is unbounded. Coverage begins with basic considerations, followed by sections devoted to various aspects of diseases of the esophagus, stomach, small intestine, colon, and pancreas and biliary tree. A final section contains chapters on new endoscopic technologies. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
