Diseases of the Pancreas: Acute Pancreatitis, Chronic Pancreatitis, Neoplasms of the Pancreas. (Hardback)

Unavailable. No reason given.


Clearly structured text, presented with the corresponding illustrations on a two-page spread Compiled by a team of authors with many years' experience in the field of diseases of the pancreas, this book is an ideal combination of evidence-based literature and the authors' expertise. An interdisciplinary approach to the basis, diagnosis and treatment of diseases of the pancreas has been chosen, and the succinct and clearly structured text is consistently linked with the corresponding illustrations on a two-page spread. The division into three major parts (acute pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis and pancreatic tumors) further enhances the clarity of the text. In the chapter 'Acute pancreatitis', along with the new markers of necrosis, several major topics of imaging via nuclear magnetic resonance and the different randomized controlled studies addressing treatment are covered. In the section on chronic pancreatitis, clinical aspects, pancreatic function and imaging, and recent clinical studies receive special attention.

Finally, in the section on tumors of the pancreas, particular emphasis has been placed on imaging with the newer techniques of spiral computed tomography and ultra-rapid magnetic resonance imaging in the 'all-in-one' technique. Furthermore, molecular biology, which in the future will become increasingly important, and the concept of gene polymorphisms underlying many diseases have received special attention. This clearly laid out and easily readable encyclopedia is aimed particularly at general practitioners and students in their clinical years, as well as at specialists who desire a more in-depth knowledge of the pancreas, such as internists, gastroenterologists, surgeons, radiologists, oncologists, pathologists and pediatricians. But others will also find this to be a comprehensive reference book on the subject.
