Clinical and didactic, Therapeutic Gastrointestinal Endoscopy is a practical guide to the use of endoscopy for diagnosing and managing oesophageal obstruction; upper GI bleeding and malignancy; enteral nutrition; biliary calculi; pancreatic duct problems and lower GI problems. The emphasis throughout the book is placed on evidence-based medicine in Modern-day practice. Each chapter gives a typical clinical vignette of a problem in its particular area and goes on to outline its presentation in patients, the key points for making a diagnosis, the general approach to management of the problem, and the techniques for dealing with it, including tips for success and avoiding complications, and advice on when and why to use each technique. A liberal use of figures, photographs and illustrations helps explain by example, and evidence is cited from the key literature on every topic. With contributions from acknowledged experts in the field, Therapeutic Gastrointestinal Endoscopy is indispensable reading not just for the experienced diagnostic endoscopist from a general clinical background but for surgeons and consultants at ail levels.
