“A comprehensive overview of the far-reaching effects of loss of the gut. It is a good update on state-of-the-art treatment of patients … and the authors also go behind the scenes to discuss aspects of care … .Intestinal Failure gives insight into recent progress in the understanding of intestinal failure, covers the most important topics that the clinician working in this area will face … .Despite major improvements in the survival of patients with severe intestinal failure, the treatment of patients with poor gut function remains an exciting and challenging area of medicine, and this book enables the reader to have a good overview and understanding of the topic.” (New England Journal of Medicine, November 2008)
