    IBS affects almost one in six Americans and is characterized by abdominal pain, bloating, gas, and diarrhea and constipation. Today physicians are better able to diagnose this complex disorder, understand and explain its origins, and develop a treatment plan that effectively meets the individual needs of a patient. Since publication of the first edition of "Making Sense of IBS", diagnosis and treatment of irritable bowel syndrome have changed significantly. Drawing on his many years of experience treating people who have symptoms of IBS, Dr. Brian E. Lacy has greatly expanded the first edition, adding new topics and the latest findings on tests, medications, alternative treatments, dietary factors, and lifestyle. Dr. Lacy explains normal digestion, the causes of IBS, how IBS is diagnosed, and what to expect with treatment. He also explores special topics such as IBS in children and psychological, hypnotherapeutic, and psychiatric therapies. Important new information in the second edition includes: - the roles of fiber, gluten, lactose, and fructose in the development and treatment of IBS - the use of probiotics and antibiotics to treat IBS - similarities and differences between IBS and inflammatory bowel disease (IBD) - the relationship between small intestine bacterial overgrowth and IBS - how to make the most of your visits to a gastroenterologist - lifestyle modifications that can improve symptoms of IBS "Making Sense of IBS" is an essential resource for anyone who has symptoms or a diagnosis of IBS as well as for health professionals who treat people with this complex disorder.

Perfect as a point-of-care resource on the hospital wards and also as a refresher for board exam preparation, the focus throughout is on providing rapid reference, essential information on each disease to allow for quick, easy browsing and assimilation of the must-know information. All chapters follow a consistent template including the following features:

    - An opening bottom-line/key points section
    - Classification, pathogenesis and prevention of disease
    - Evidence-based diagnosis, including relevant algorithms, laboratory and imaging tests, and potential pitfalls when diagnosing a patient
    - Disease management including commonly used medications with dosages, when to perform surgery, management algorithms and how to prevent complications
    - How to manage special populations, ie, in pregnancy, children and the elderly
    - The very latest evidence-based results, major society guidelines (ASG/ACG/UEGW) and key external sources to consult In addition, the book comes with a companion website housing extra features such as case studies with related questions for self-assessment, key patient advice and ICD codes.

    During the past 20 years, there has been an explosion of clinical, basic science, and translational research leading to a better understanding of the physiology and disease processes in the gastrointestinal system of children. Endoscopic techniques have improved, correlation of radiographic and biopsy findings with disease have become better defined, and advances in transplant care have led to markedly improved survival, even in the smallest of infants.

    Pediatric Gastroenterology: A Color Handbook explores the entirety of pediatric gastroenterology, including the gastrointestinal tract, liver, pancreas, and associated nutrition, radiographic, and endoscopic considerations. It covers a large number of diverse topics and provides a basic overview of pediatric gastrointestinal disease.

    The book presents multitude of endoscopic, histologic, and radiographic images as well as illustrations and metabolic pathways to convey a better understanding of disease processes. It also includes a list of recommended readings provided by the chapter authors, giving you a solid introduction to pediatric gastroenterology.

     This book answers key questions asked by emergency clinicians faced with complex gastrointestinal and abdominal pain presentations. Instead of a traditional format that includes epidemiology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and treatment options, this book takes an approach that mirrors the way clinicians interact with patients - by asking and answering specific clinical care questions. The book is organized into sections by presentation - gastrointestinal bleeding, for example - each of which contains chapters on specific questions, such as "What is the best clinical risk score for low risk GIB patients?" Each clinical question comes with a detailed, evidence-based response and a summary that gives best practices, recommendations, and references. Additionally, at the end of each section is a chapter titled "Expert Corner," which asks the same clinical questions to a surgical or gastrointestinal specialist and includes key pearls these experts have for emergency medicine practitioners. Gastrointestinal Emergencies: Evidence-Based Answers to Key Clinical Questions is an essential guide for emergency medicine physicians, residents, and medical students who want to review and improve their care of acute gastrointestinal emergencies.

    This book introduces readers to Direct Acting Antiviral (DAAs) agents, newly developed drugs to treat chronic hepatitis C virus infection, which have an excellent anti-viral effect on virus replication. These drugs have been developed to enhance the effect of interferon and ribavirin, as the resistant strains against each drug have been described both in vitro and in vivo and the existences of naturally occurring variants have been reported. However, since the combination of different classes of DAAs is sufficient to completely eradicate the virus without the need for interferon or ribavirin, the current treatment regimen does not include interferon. Ribavirin is used in combination with sofosbuvir, a potent polymerase inhibitor, to enhance its antiviral effects.

    Hepatitis C Virus Treatment offers readers a comprehensive guide to hepatitis C; describing the resistance profiles against these drugs and shedding light on the difficulties involved in DAA therapy and the direction of future treatments, it will equip doctors to understand the essentials of treating the disease. It also describes in detail new and innovative DAA treatments, the effects of the agents, and the characteristics of resistance, providing cutting-edge information not only for hepatologists, but also for researchers, clinical residents, and medical students.

    Product Description

     

    Surgery has traditionally been the standard of care for the treatment of neoplastic lesions in the gastrointestinal tract. With advances in endoscopic resection techniques, there has been a paradigm shift in how to approach many of these precancerous and early cancerous lesions. Potential advantages of endoscopic resection include its minimally invasiveness which often translates into quicker patient recovery.

    In recent years, there have been major strides in safety and efficacy of minimally invasive endoscopic approaches with ongoing advances in therapeutic endoscopy. Advanced Techniques for Endoscopic Resection in the GI Tract by Drs. Peter V. Draganov, Takuji Gotoda, and Dennis J. Yang provides an in-depth analysis of the current state of advanced endoscopic techniques for the evaluation and resection in the gastrointestinal tract. 

    Each chapter in the book addresses specific topics such as:

    endoscopic evaluation of lesions

    technical aspects of the procedure

    management of adverse events

    post-procedural care and follow-up

     

    Advanced Techniques for Endoscopic Resection in the GI Tract provides a comprehensive review of all the different aspects of advanced endoscopic resection in the gastrointestinal tract which makes it ideal for interventional GI endoscopists and general gastroenterologists, as well as surgeons.

    • Covers new practices of surgical treatment of upper abdominal digestive diseases
    • Introduces surgical procedures and systematizes all surgical steps
    • Shares knowledge through illustrations and videos
    • Supports teaching through discussion of different modalities of practical educational programs, including telementoring

    About this book:

    This book aims to comprehensibly describe the minimally invasive technique including robot assisted procedures of upper abdominal cancer, including aspects such as surgical anatomy, neoadjuvant therapy and minimally invasive surgical technique, and robot assisted procedures (5 alinea). Upper abdominal oncological surgery is increasingly approached by Minimally Invasive Surgery (MIS). Due to the rising experience of young surgeons with MIS, the optimal imaging obtained during the procedure and the possibility of decreasing the postoperative complications has led to an increase of quality of life without compromising the completeness of resection.


    The book bases its approach on the information gathered by MIS observation and the step-by-step descriptions, by using illustrations and videos of surgical procedures for oncological resections of esophageal and gastric cancer, as well as for duodenum, pancreas, spleen and liver cancers.


    Furthermore, this book will serve as a teaching guide, providing a present-day introduction to the increasingly sophisticated performance of surgery required by general and specialized surgical practitioners. The reader will have access to a practical book with relevant information that guides adequate treatment.
