About this book


Pancreatic Disease gives an up-to-date picture of recent advances in the field and developing areas where progress can be expected in the near future. Four main areas are covered: acute pancreatitis, chronic pancreatitis, malignant disease and basic sciences. Chapters are included on imaging, pancreatic disease in childhood and pancreatic transplantation. The distinguished contributors include internationally known names in all the specialties covered. Established specialists in pancreatic disease - whether medical, surgical or radiological - will find the book an important reference source for current thinking and practice regarding all aspects of the investigation and management of patients with inflammatory and malignant disease of the pancreas. It will also provide residents, particularly those preparing for examinations, with a clear grasp of the advancing areas of knowledge in pancreatic disease that is not available from larger texts.
