Gastrointestinal Disease: An Endoscopic Approach, Second Edition has been completely revised and updated into a one-volume clinical reference text. Unlike others on this topic, this text demonstrates how the endoscope incorporates pathophysiology, diagnostic, and treatment modalities into endoscopic practice. This new edition includes more than 1200 full-color photographs, endoscopic images, and line drawings that help illustrate and enhance the clarity of some of the elaborate procedures and diagnoses of gastroenterology. Edited by six prestigious gastroenterologists and with many new and fully updated chapters that are written by 134 of the most prominent names in the field of GI, this new edition is a comprehensive text that brings gastroenterology up-to-date in the fast paced world of endoscopy. Gastrointestinal Disease: An Endoscopic Approach, Second Edition concentrates more on the practical hands-on instructions in the endoscopic diagnosis and treatment of this disease. This expanded and improved text covers a wide range of gastroenterology topics such as the common gastritis, GERD and infectious diseases, benign and malignant lesions of the esophagus, the stomach, the intestines, and the pancreas and biliary tree. Special chapters, such as the Designing Clinical Research in Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, The Prevention of Infection Following Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, Complications of Peptic Ulcer Disease, and Credentialing for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, help make this book useful as a learning text, as well as a professional’s reference. This innovative text is an invaluable tool in the endoscopy collection and should be on the bookshelf of all gastroenterologists, surgeons, and internists that treat patients with gastrointestinal diseases.

BOOK EXCERPT:

"Gastrointestinal Disease" is the first monograph in a new series on management and treatment in major clinical subspecialties and patient groups. Further volumes will be published over the next few years. Each book is complete in its own right. The whole series, however, has been prepared to fill a gap, perceived by the publisher, myself and the volume authors, between standard textbooks of medicine and therapeutics and research reviews, symposia and original articles in specialist fields. Each volume aims to provide a concise, up to date account of treatment in its subject area with particular reference to drug therapy. Traditional clinical and therapeutic approaches have been presented in the context of developments in clinical pharmacology. Wherever possible, authorship has been under taken by practising clinicians who themselves have training and experience in clinical pharmacology. The volumes are intended to be guides to treatment, to assist in the choice of drug and other treatment and to provide easy references to drug interactions and adverse reactions. It is expected that these monographs will be particularly useful for the young hospital doctor in training for higher qualifications. However, they should also be valuable to or senior medical students and to those in established hospital general practice who are seeking to update their knowledge and to view recent developments in other fields in a balanced context. The aims of the series should be upheld by this volume on "Gastrointestinal Disease".

BOOK EXCERPT:

The endoscopic use of lasers in the treatment of gastrointestinal d~seases began within the last decade and has evolved rapidly. Work is now being done at more than 150 centers in Europe, the United States, Japan and the rest of the world. To date no publi cation has defined the state of the art. This text attempts to fill that void. To disseminate information about therapeutic laser endoscopy, an increasing number of short courses have been sponsored in the United States wherein the attendee hears didactic lectures, views video tapes, and in addition, has the opportunity to have a "hands-on" experience with endoscopic laser therapy in the animal labs. This book is an expansion of the material presented in one such course sponsored by The Cook County Hospital in Chicago, Illinois, in October, 1982. The course was organized by Peter Bright-Asare, M. D. , Chairman of Gastroenterology at the time of the course and chaired by Dr. Bright-Asare and myself. Some of the lectures from the course have been broadened and formalized. Other chapters were invited and added. Also included are group discussions about issues that are either controversial or undefined. Attempts were made to secure consensus opinion from experienced investigators in areas where no hard scientific experimental or clinical data exists. The contributors have a wide range of interest and expertise. Dr.

This manual provides guidance to water utilities and public health agencies, showing how to set up locally responsive water surveillance programs. It examines two major settings which surveillance must address and their appropriate responses: variations occurring in plant operation or distribution systems, and the detection of disease in the community. A proactive approach is described, involving watershed monitoring, record maintenance, and planning for emergencies. Material on public health recommends augmenting laboratory-based notifiable disease surveillance and creating or improving an emergency room-based sentinel system. A communications and action plan in case of outbreak is outlined. Emde is affiliated with the Northern Alberta Provincial Laboratory of Public Health, Canada. This work lacks a subject index. c.

"Optimum functioning of the liver in conjunction with the gastrointestinal system is critical for health. They are critical for the digestion and absorption of nutrients and foods to produce growth. Nutrients and non-nutrients are important modulators of the liver function. The symptoms related to liver dysfunction include both physical signs and symptoms of abnormal absorption of fat, changes in blood sugar, and altered metabolism. Bioactive Food as Dietary Interventions for Liver and Gastrointestinal Disease provides evidence that foods and their compounds can modify some liver and gastrointestinal diseases"--P. [4] of cover.

BOOK EXCERPT:

Nutritional support of people with gastrointestinal impairment is critical to treatment and ultimately successful management. As such, gastroenterologists should be experts in nutrition and knowledgeable about the affects of nutrition on disease management. Nutritional and Gastrointestinal Disease fulfills that need, serving as a hands-on, practical reference in nutrition support for the clinical gastroenterologist and other clinicians with similar interests. The volume offers expert nutritional knowledge and management ideas as well as methodology for combating problems such as short bowel syndrome, inflammatory bowel disease, celiac disease and obesity. Renowned authorities also investigate nutrition’s influence on such issues as liver failure and acute pancreatitis. While gastroenterology training programs around the world remain deficient in their nutrition curriculum, Nutritional and Gastrointestinal Disease provides a comprehensive and groundbreaking support for clinical gastroenterologists.
