Description

The encyclopedic guide to the pancreas for practicing clinicians and surgeons

In the past decade extraordinary developments in diagnostic and therapeutic radiology and endoscopy have been coupled with major advances in surgical techniques and basic sciences. As a result the management of pancreatic disorders is now handled by a multidisciplinary team. This book shows you how to achieve superior patient management by taking the team approach to in-hospital care.


Fully revised and updated, this new edition of The Pancreas: An Integrated Textbook of Basic Science, Medicine and Surgery details the latest knowledge on genetics and molecular biological background in terms of anatomy, physiology, pathology, and pathophysiology for all known pancreatic disorders. The Editor and author team are leading pancreatologists of high international repute and they present global best-practice and evidence-based knowledge in this comprehensive reference.


A timely section on early and late outcome data considers the benefits of management including chemotherapy and immune therapy. Incorporating evidence-based data, the book also focuses on early diagnosis, limited surgical treatment, oncology, treatment results and the option of transplantation.


This new edition contains more than 400 illustrations, line drawings and radiographs to provide a step-by-step approach to endoscopic techniques and surgical procedures. With The Pancreas: An Integrated Textbook of Basic Science, Medicine and Surgery, Second Edition, you can achieve a greater understanding of current diagnostic, medical and surgical treatment principles in one authoritative reference point.
