About this book


The discovery of H. pylori's major role in various acid-related diseases has wrought profound changes in the clinical approach to this family of conditions. In Diseases of the Gastroesophageal Mucosa: The Acid-Related Disorders, clinical experts synthesize for the practicing physician all the important developments in the diagnosis and treatment of these very common medical conditions. These highly experienced writers focus on conditions in which gastric acid is fundamentally implicated in specific pathophysiologies, and in which the modulation of gastric acidity influences the clinical response. They address the evaluation of patients suspected of harboring both peptic ulcers and ulcers from other causes, with emphasis on novel aspects of H. pylori infection. New information is also provided to assist clinicians in efficiently managing patients with dyspepsia and in the diagnosis and treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), including its extraesophageal manifestations and upper gastrointestinal bleeding. The drugs used to treat these acid-related diseases are fully discussed.

Authoritative and highly readable, Diseases of the Gastroesophageal Mucosa: The Acid-Related Disorders distills a wealth of cutting-edge clinical practice into one readable volume that will help every clinician manage patients with today's best in diagnostic and treatment practices.
