Overview

Gastrointestinal Disease, An Endoscopic Approach, is the first full-colour clinical reference work to address the pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management disorders of the GI from an endoscopic perspective. Comprehensive yet readable, this book brings gastroenterology into the modern age of fiber optic endoscopy.

Meticulously edited by six eminent academic gastroenterologists, with chapters authored by 120 of the foremost names in the field, Gastrointestinal Disease covers the range of GI problems: from common gastritis, GERD, and infectious diseases, through benign and malignant lesions of the esophagus, stomach, intestines, pancreas and biliary tree. Chapters supply practical, hands-on instruction in the endoscopic diagnosis and treatment of these disorders. Hundreds of full-colour endoscopic images as well as black and white line drawings illustrate the procedures and diagnoses. Special chapters--such as Preparation of the Patient, The Endoscopy Unit, Complications, and Prevention of Infection--make the book useful both as a learning text and an authoritative reference.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"This is an excellent textbook that covers all of the important topics in gastrointestinal endoscopy." Practical Gastroenterology "The unique excellence of the book comes through in the discussions of endoscopic techniques and in the wonderfully clear illustrations of what can be identified, including useful landmarks. There is an excellent index and useful, very current bibliographies in each chapter. The editors have broken new ground in providing this text." Journal of the American Medical Association

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.
