About this book


Diagnostic and Therapeutic Procedures in Gastroenterology: An Illustrated Guide is a comprehensive volume describing procedures for the gastrointestinal tract in a simple way. Artistic illustrations are provided to educate the physician about procedures, and to provide not only clear descriptions of the changes in the anatomy and physiology, but also to provide advice on medical management of the post-procedure patient. Clear, detailed, artist-rendered illustrations of the anatomy are included as well as appro¬priate, radiological images. Chapters describe in detail the indications, contraindications, anatomical alterations, and physiological alter¬ations that result from various operations and procedures. Comparisons between alternative operations, complications, medical management issues, and costs are also discussed. Diagnostic and Therapeutic Procedures in Gastroenterology: An Illustrated Guide is a unique volume, written primarily for primary care physicians and general internists. It is also suitable for medical students, residents, nurses and nurse practi¬tioners, nutritionists, dietitians and various subspecialists, who take care of patients with gastrointestinal disorders.
