Gastrointestinal Disease: An Endoscopic Approach, Second Edition has been completely revised and updated into a one-volume clinical reference text. Unlike others on this topic, this text demonstrates how the endoscope incorporates pathophysiology, diagnostic, and treatment modalities into endoscopic practice. This new edition includes more than 1200 full-color photographs, endoscopic images, and line drawings that help illustrate and enhance the clarity of some of the elaborate procedures and diagnoses of gastroenterology.

Edited by six prestigious gastroenterologists and with many new and fully updated chapters that are written by 134 of the most prominent names in the field of GI, this new edition is a comprehensive text that brings gastroenterology up-to-date in the fast paced world of endoscopy. Gastrointestinal Disease: An Endoscopic Approach, Second Edition concentrates more on the practical hands-on instructions in the endoscopic diagnosis and treatment of this disease. This expanded and improved text covers a wide range of gastroenterology topics such as the common gastritis, GERD and infectious diseases, benign and malignant lesions of the esophagus, the stomach, the intestines, and the pancreas and biliary tree.

Special chapters, such as the Designing Clinical Research in Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, The Prevention of Infection Following Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, Complications of Peptic Ulcer Disease, and Credentialing for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, help make this book useful as a learning text, as well as a professional’s reference. This innovative text is an invaluable tool in the endoscopy collection and should be on the bookshelf of all gastroenterologists, surgeons, and internists that treat patients with gastrointestinal diseases.
