About this book

Introduction

This book is for internists and surgeons in clinics and private practice as well as for medical students, all with an interest in acute and chronic pancreatitis. Comprehensive, up-to-date, and clinically oriented, this book is particularly useful for patient care. Particular attention is given to diagnosis and treatment. Included is also recognition and management of important complications such as necrotizing pancreatitis, pancreatic pseudocysts, and pancreatic insufficiency. Medical and surgical options in both acute and chronic pancreatitis are described in detail. Figures, tables and algorithms illustrate important concepts. The book gives not only the actual state of the art based on established literature, but also brings the experience of both authors from the two sides of the Atlantic to bear on controversial areas. The bibliography is complete through 1996 with approximately 1900 references.
