Doody's Review ServiceReviewer: Seymour Sabesin, MD (Rush University Medical Center)
Description: This is a review with critical comments of many of the year's best published articles in the broad field of gastroenterology and liver diseases.
Purpose: This review of the medical and surgical literature in digestive diseases for 1993 provides the reader with a timely and critical assessment of the important literature.
Audience: The book hits the target audience of gastroenterologists, surgeons, and fellows-in-training. The editors are very credible authorities.
Features: The references are current and pertinent, as befits a review of the year's literature. In a review book such as this, the quality of illustrations, table of contents, and index are not as important.
Assessment: This excellent annual review of the gastroenterology literature has become a standard in the field.
