"Tn 2001, Prateek Sharma and Richard Sampliner assembled a
superb textbook (First Edition) on Barrett s esophagus and
esophageal adenocarc I norma. Once again, outstanding authors were
selected to write the individual chapters for the Second
Edition. There are detailed discussions of every aspect of
Barrett’s esophagus and esophageal adenocarcinoma, including
many controversial topics There are sevcral significant advances in
the second edItion. There are now chapters on both screening and
surveillance in patients at risk for Barrett’s esophagus.
There is an excellent chapter on clinical and epidemiologic
features of esophageal adenocarcinoma. The sections on the role of
endoscopy have been broadly expanded. There are several excellent,
up-to-date discussions of high resolution endoscopy.
chromoendoscopy, spectroscopy, optical coherence, endoscopic
uLtrasonography, and endoscopic mucosal resection. The sections on
ablative therapies ale brief and well done. However, there continue
lobe new, available devices such as the HALO 360 system (for which
there are no publications in the peer reviewed medical literature)
that cannot be discussed. There is a new section on the hopes for
chemoprevention of adenocarcinoma in patients with Barrett’s
esophagus. The surgical section has been expanded to include a mole
detailed discussion of surgical techniques available to patients
with esophageal adenoenrcinoma. The nurnerous color photographs in
this edition are terrrific."
"The Second Edition points out that there are many new ideas and
techniques in the area of Barrett’s esophagus and esophageal
adenocarcinoma. It is well written, thorough, and as up-to-date as
any textbook can he on a rapidly evolving area. This is an
excellent textbook for anyone with an interest in esophageal
disease or gastrointestinal cancer. It would be an essential
textbook for any medical library."
