Beschreibung:

This handbook provides a comprehensive overview of common disorders affecting the pancreas and the bile duct. The book reviews the anatomy and laboratory test relevant to the pathophysiology of the disease, categorizes the symptoms under clinical scenarios like “incidental finding” or “painless jaundice”, defines accuracy (or lack of) of the investigations used, and formulates a management plan as per evidence-based recommendations. The spectrum of diseases covered include commonly occurring benign conditions like pancreatitis, gall stone disease, bile duct strictures, and malignant diseases of the pancreas, gall bladder and the bile ducts. Also included are topics on motility disorders of the pancreaticobiliary system and pre-malignant conditions. 






Written by experts in the field,
Pancreas and Biliary Diseases: A Point of Care Clinical Guide is a valuable reference resource for clinicians who need the latest evidence-based approach to manage these complex patients and answer questions the patient or the referring doctors may have regarding pancreas and biliary diseases.
