Gastrointestinal Bleeding: A Practical Approach to Diagnosis and Management covers all aspects of bleeding in a systemic approach organized by the site of bleeding. Elective and emergent bleeding is also covered. This volume provides a practical text for the practitioner in addressing patient issues in their practice, with a step-by-step approach through appropriate diagnosis and management strategies including surgical, endoscopic, medical and angiographic techniques, making this a truly multidisciplinary and disease based text. Specific sections in the book are crafted by experts in each topic.

Gastrointestinal Bleeding: A Practical Approach to Diagnosis and Management provides a ready reference that will help physicians understand and work through diagnostic and therapeutic dilemmas and will be of great value to full range of practitioners that manage patients with bleeding including surgeons, gastroenterologists and radiologists as well as residents and fellows in these subspecialties.
