Firstly, the spectrum of diseases are different. Diseases of infection are still quite prevalent in many parts of the developing world. Moreover, a number of diseases occur in developing countries which are only rarely, if ever, seen in the Western world. One can cite the examples of tropical calcific pancreatitis and veno-occlusive disease of liver, among others.
Secondly, the paucity of diagnostic and therapeutic modalities makes the clinical approach to a patient somewhat different in developing countries. Thirdly, access to Western textbooks is limited in many areas of the developing world. The contributors have kept these things in mind while preparing their part of the book.

This book discusses the diagnosis, treatment and management of liver disease. Chapter One reviews hepatic hydatidosis. Chapter Two explores the diagnosis, natural history, and management for patients with chronic hepatitis C (CHC). Chapter Three discusses scientific evidence that explains the relationship between metabolic syndrome, non- alcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and psoriasis and the treatment strategy for this co-morbid condition. Chapter Four examines the pathophysiology and treatment of liver cirrhosis. Chapter Five reviews surgical strategies to push up resection limits in liver disease and liver failure after surgery.
Provides data on correlations of organs with the liver from basic and clinical viewpoints
Includes chapters on dysbiosis and nonalcoholic steatohepatitis
Will enrich researchers, clinical residents and medical students understanding of the liver
About this book
Based on the results of studies on autoimmunity, the endocrine system, nutrients, metal metabolism and intestinal bacterial flora, this volume thoroughly covers studies on functional correlation of the liver with the spleen, visceral fat, intestinal tract, and central nervous system. Including associations with dysbiosis, nonalcoholic steatohepatitis (NASH) and hepatocellular carcinoma, it offers comprehensive data on correlations of organs with the liver from basic and clinical viewpoints.
The Liver in Systemic Diseases will especially be of interest to researchers, clinical residents and medical students with an interest in hepatology and gastroenterology. Furthermore, the book has interdisciplinary appeal and provides a foundation that will help physicians to consider clinical conditions of diseases from a broader perspective.

This book covers the huge advances made in clinical diagnosisenabling earlier detection, while addressing the recent progressmade in treatment of hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC) to enablesuccessful therapy.
It draws on the expertise of an internationally recognizedauthor famed for his understanding, knowledge and efforts indefining terms and diagnosis in this area.
The text reviews the full range of pathological information ofHCC based on the study of surgical cases and biopsy materials,along with images, to help compare findings that may be encounteredby pathologists. It also makes special reference to developments inearly stage HCC detection and premalignant lesions which canincrease effective treatment.

Chronic liver disease is one of the most prevalent diseases in the developed world. The large amount of new knowledge has resulted in subspecialities, even in issues such as hepatology. Thus every day, it is more difficult to access all relevant information that is being published. Additionally, biomolecular techniques lead to a level of complexity that is only beneficial when dealt with by professionals. This book attempts to give a broad overview of the molecular biology of the liver, emphasizing how this knowledge is the basis of further treatment. Thus, pathophysiology and therapies are updated in viral hepatitis, hepatic encephalopathy and portal hypertension, among others. However, appended issues that apparently are less relevant such as the stem cell and endocannabinoids are included. These two issues will soon be of importance due to their close relationship with the liver tissue and especially with liver disease. There are also new paradigms such as cell death and the implication of the extracellular matrix, which are also addressed. In addition, important issues such as the stellate cells and their intimate relationship with fibrogenesis are treated in-depth. Also the fundamental role of endothelin in chronic liver disease is examined. Because of its prevalence, NASH was discussed with special interest, with a focus on the process from fatty liver to molecular biology of liver cells and metabolism in chronic liver disease. The authors believe that this is a broad vision that describes the basic pathophysiological mechanisms shared by many liver diseases, giving rational support for specific therapies.
This new edition is a comprehensive guide to the complete field of liver transplantation for practising transplant surgeons. Presented in a step by step format, the book begins with an overview and discussion on different types of liver disease. Pre- and post-transplant considerations and both deceased and live donor evaluation are examined in depth. The following sections describe operative technique, complications, pathology, radiology and much more. Topics have been fully revised to provide the most up to date information, and the atlas is highly illustrated with surgical images and figures. The book is authored by internationally recognised experts in the field of transplant surgery, led by Ernesto Molmenti from North Shore-LIJ Health System and School of Medicine, New York. Previous edition published in 2002.
