The Diagnostic and Therapeutic Procedures in Gastroenterology: An Illustrated Guide 2nd edition (PDF) offers a thorough introduction to the procedures that are performed on the gastrointestinal system. In this volume, both the normal anatomical situations and those in which the gastrointestinal system has been surgically altered are discussed, along with the reasons, contraindications, and the specific manner of performing the treatment. New chapters have been added to the most recent edition of the book, which is the second edition. These new chapters cover a variety of topics, including the cleaning and disinfecting of gastrointestinal endoscopes, tissue sampling, endoscopic accessories, the removal of foreign bodies, confocal endoscopy, and robotic endoscopy. The older chapters from the first edition have also been updated and revised. In addition, each chapter comes with its own set of accompanying illustrations, such as diagrams, pictures, tables, and algorithms, which exactly and clearly show complicated material.
Primary care physicians, gastroenterologists, and gastroenterology fellows in training who treat and manage patients with gastrointestinal disorders will find Diagnostic and Therapeutic Procedures in Gastroenterology: An Illustrated Guide, 2nd Edition to be an invaluable resource. This book was written by leading authorities from around the world.
It will be helpful for gastroenterology trainees (especially in preparation for specialty exit exams), nonmedical endoscopists, and endoscopy units. The second version of this guidebook includes an overview of procedures that are routinely utilized in gastroenterology. — Anita Sainsbury and Ruchit Sood, British Journal of Hospital Medicine, Volume 79, Issue 7, Year: 2018
