The new, Diagnostic and Therapeutic Procedures in Gastroenterology: An Illustrated Guide 2nd edition (PDF) provides a comprehensive overview of procedures for the gastrointestinal tract. The volume describes the contraindications, indications, and precise method of a procedure, under normal anatomical conditions and when the gastrointestinal tract is surgically altered. In addition to revised chapters from the previous edition, the latest 2nd edition features new chapters that cover such topics as cleaning and disinfecting gastrointestinal endoscopes, tissue sampling, endoscopic accessories, removal of foreign bodies, and confocal endoscopy and robotic endoscopy. Every chapter is also accompanied by diagrams, photographs, tables, and algorithms to precisely and easily display complex information.
Written by leading authorities from around the globe, Diagnostic and Therapeutic Procedures in Gastroenterology: An Illustrated Guide, 2nd Edition is a valuable resource for primary care physicians, gastroenterologists, and gastroenterology fellows in training who treat and manage patients with gastrointestinal disorders.
“The 2nd edition of this manual provides an overview of commonly used procedures in gastroenterology. … it will be valuable for gastroenterology trainees (particularly in preparation for specialty exit exams), nonmedical endoscopists and endoscopy units.” – Anita Sainsbury/Ruchit Sood, British Journal of Hospital Medicine, Vol. 79 (7), 2018
