Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Willem J de Villiers, MD, PhD, MHCM (University of Kentucky College of Medicine)
Description: This is the timely fourth edition (last edition published 12 years ago) of this handbook, originally titled Manual of Gastroenterologic Procedures. It is a unique, reliable, and concise resource for virtually all of the gastroenterological procedures commonly used in clinical practice and academic training programs. A standardized format is used for description of procedures with section headings relating to indications, contraindications, patient preparation, procedure, and complications. Simple line drawings illustrate key concepts.
Purpose: The handbook is aimed primarily at gastroenterologists and their staff in the procedure unit. However, its readership will more broadly also include GI fellows, general physicians and residents, surgeons, nurses, technicians, and students. It is not intended to provide complete endoscopic information, but rather serves as a "quick look" source of essential information and helpful tips. This updated version is welcomed as much has changed since publication of the previous edition and it clearly meets its worthy objectives.
Audience: Originally the product of the Division of Gastroenterology and Hepatology at the University of North Carolina, the handbook is now written by a list of contributing authors that reads like a Who's Who of United States academic and private gastroenterologists. It is a practical manual aimed at gastroenterologists and gastroenterologists-in-training as well as nurses and technicians in the GI procedure unit.
Features: The handbook is a practical, easily accessible manual to almost all gastroenterological procedures performed commonly. There are a total of 50 chapters and six useful appendixes (including a complete listing of CPT codes). The short, to-the-point chapters are grouped in five broad sections, covering preparation of the patient, basic techniques, advanced and/or secondary techniques, tests of GI function, and endoscopic ultrasound. Numerous updates are covered such as endoscopic ultrasound, capsule endoscopy, and argon plasma coagulation as well as endoscopic antireflux therapies (Stretta, Enteryx and EndoCinch). Shortcomings include: omission of flexible sigmoidoscopy as an entity— although it is ostensibly covered in the colonoscopy chapter, no CPT codes are provided for it; and cursory coverage of the wireless Bravo pH probe placement and monitoring of esophageal pH.
Assessment: This is an outstanding, easily accessible handbook in a handy format that contains practical information gastroenterologists and trainees require on a daily basis. This fourth edition has been long awaited and the audience will not be disappointed.
