About this book


This volume provides a concise yet comprehensive overview on surgical procedures performed on the cirrhotic patient. The text explains the underlying pathophysiologic alterations in liver disease and cirrhosis, provides assessment of disease severity and risk factors, and helps to predict potential outcomes based on the nature of the operation. Operations discussed in detail include bariatric surgery, colorectal surgery, hepatic surgery, kidney transplantation, gynecological procedures, neurosurgical procedures, and ophthalmic surgery. The book is also supplemented with instructive color illustrations and tables.

Written by experts in the field, Surgical Procedures on the Cirrhotic Patient is a valuable, multidisciplinary resource for clinicians who treat the cirrhotic patient.

With a Foreword by Thomas E. Starzl, the father of liver transplantation.
