The Esophagus / Edition 4

A Brandon-Hill selection in its Third Edition, Castell and Richter’s leading clinical reference on the esophagus is now in its Fourth Edition. Written by the world’s foremost authorities, this definitive volume provides complete and current information on the diagnosis and treatment—both medical and surgical—of all esophageal disorders, including reflux disease, Barrett’s esophagus, diverticula, foreign bodies, trauma, and hernias. More than 500 illustrations—128 in full color—complement the text.

The Fourth Edition has many new contributors—approximately 50 per cent—and increased international representation. Three completely new chapters cover multichannel intraluminal impedance, endoscopic therapies for GERD, and GERD in children.
