Overview

The new 3rd Edition of the classic, definitive reference, Surgery of the Liver & Biliary Tract has been completely updated and many chapters have been consolidated for a streamlined approach, allowing the reader to find answers to clinical questions more easily. In addition, this text features many more step-by-step procedures, extensively illustrated with over 200 new operative line drawings. Many updates have been made to reflect the latest information in the field. There is expanded new coverage of the management of tumors of the liver and biliary tract, as well as of benign diseases of the liver and biliary tract; emerging techniques for non-surgical treatment of tumors; developments in liver transplantation; and greater emphasis on laparoscopic techniques. A CD-ROM that incorporates video sequences of operative techniques and a library of many of the line drawings in full color accompanies the text.

"...details clinically significant aspects of anatomy, pathophysiology, diagnostic techniques, operative procedures, and minimally invasive interventional therapies."

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
A comprehensive text that includes all aspects of the anatomy, pathology, diagnosis, and surgically related therapeutic approaches to liver and biliary tract disorders. This edition 1st ed., 1988 is updated to take into account recent advances in physiological understanding of disease processes and of the newer diagnostic and therapeutic modalities. It reflects the recognition of the importance of laparoscopic surgery, not only in terms of technical description, but also in relation to the special problems associated with laparoscopic operative approaches and their complications. The section on liver transplantation is expanded to take into account new developments, and there is recognition of the new techniques of gallstone lithotripsy, cryosurgery for liver tumors, and of recent advances in chemotherapy.
