This important full-color atlas, written by pioneers in the field, provides complete, superbly illustrated coverage of both new and established techniques in GI endoscopy. Now fully updated with the newest interventional procedures.

The book uses more than 500 high-definition watercolors derived from operative photographs which simulate the physician's cognitive visual experience while performing the procedures, and thus recreating both the look and "feel" of actual surgery. The accompanying text leads you step-by-step through each operation, and highlights both special tips and potential pitfalls. Thorough and usefully illustrated, this unique book will prove indispensable for all gastroenterologists and endoscopic surgeons.

New topics include: Endoscopy mucosal en bloc resection for early gastrointestinal cancers, self-expandable metallic enteral stents, self-expandable metallic stents for Klatskin tumor, treatment of intraabdominal abscesses, and more.
