Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Joseph J Cullen, MD (University of Iowa Hospitals and Clinics)
Description: This is the sixth edition of an excellent reference for the many specialists involved in the care of patients with gastrointestinal diseases. The previous edition was published in 2002.
Purpose: Previous editions were "encyclopedic in scope, breadth, and depth of coverage" and it was viewed as "the classic reference source for surgeons, internists, gastroenterologists, and others involved in the care of patients with alimentary tract diseases." The purpose of this edition is to "emphasize new procedures, including endoscopic and minimally invasive ones, and advances in technology." The book meets many, but not all of these objectives.
Audience: This edition is an excellent resource for a wide range of readers involved in the treatment of patients with gastrointestinal disease, including medical students rotating through a surgical service, surgical residents performing some of these procedures for the first time, and experienced and practicing surgeons needing a comprehensive review. Dr. Yeo is a well respected authority on surgery of the alimentary tract, primarily in the pancreatic-biliary area.
Features: The book covers alimentary tract disease from the esophagus to the anorectum. Excellent chapters cover hepatic, pancreatic, biliary and splenic conditions. This edition includes six chapters under the heading of "Techniques and Pearls" which complement the standard chapters. The figures are outstanding and probably the best I have seen in any textbook. The histological, radiological, and anatomical art figures are clear and distinct. There is some duplication. The chapters, "Operations for Peptic Ulcer", "Vagotomy and Drainage", and "Gastric Resection and Reconstruction" could have been combined into one chapter. In fact, figure 55-14 in "Operations for Peptic Ulcer" and figure 56-9 in "Vagotomy and Drainage" are identical. Also, the chapter "Laparoscopic Management of Common Bile Duct Stones" has many of the same elements as the chapter "Management of Common Bile Duct Stones". Although upper gastrointestinal endoscopy and therapy are covered, there is little discussion of colonoscopic techniques or therapy.
Assessment: This is an excellent resource. The figures and art work are excellent and the reduction from five volumes to two is beneficial.
From the Publisher
"This edition is an excellent resource for a wide range of readers involved in the treatment of patients with gastrointestinal disease, including medical students rotating through a surgical service, surgical residents performing some of these procedures for the first time, and experienced and practicing surgeons needing a comprehensive review....The figures and art work are excellent and the reduction from five volumes to two is beneficial." -Journal of the American College of Surgeons, January 2008

"An indispensable reference for the anatomy, physiology, biology, practice, and history of abdominal surgery...there is no comparable text that is as comprehensive and focused on the alimentary tract." -JAMA Review of the 5th edition
