Written and edited by internationally renowned specialists, the third edition of Gastroenterological Endoscopy covers the entire spectrum of diagnostic and therapeutic procedures for the upper and lower GI tract while providing the latest overview of GI disorders. A great wealth of high-resolution photographs provides the visual information needed to confidently assess and diagnose mucosal lesions of the entire digestive tract. Significant advances in the field—both medical and technical—since the last edition are covered in comprehensive detail.
- New panel of top international editors, continuing the tradition of excellence, depth, and breadth as originated by founding editors Classen, Tytgat, and Lightdale; list of contributing authors is a “who’s who” of GI endoscopy
- Coverage of newest, advanced tools and techniques: gastric-POEMS, submucosal tunnel endoscopic resection (STER), lumen-apposing metal stents, “over-the-scope” clips, and much more
- More than 750 exquisite images
Gastroenterological Endoscopy, third edition, surely deserves a prominent place in any complete endoscopy reference collection
Description Gastroenterological Endoscopy 3rd Edition PDF
We proudly present the third edition of Gastroenterological Endoscopy, 15 years after the first and 8 years after the second edition. Gastroenterological Endoscopy 3rd Edition PDF, founded by Professors Classen, Tytgat, and Lightdale, now passes the torch to a second generation of editors. It nonetheless continues the tradition of excellence, depth, and breadth that its founding editors started.
We strive to continue publishing the leading reference in the field of gastrointestinal endoscopy. Professors Fockens, Sung, and Wallace have brought together an outstanding team of associate editors: Todd Baron, Michael Bourke, Nicholas Shaheen, Nageshwar (Nagy) Reddy, and Lauren Gerson. After completion of Gastroenterological Endoscopy 3rd Edition PDF , but prior to its publication, we were tremendously saddened by the sudden passing of Dr. Gerson, whose contribution carries on with Gastroenterological Endoscopy 3rd Edition PDF . A memoriam to Dr. Gerson appears in the opening pages of Gastroenterological Endoscopy 3rd Edition PDF .
The list of contributing authors is a whos who of endoscopy. We are fortunate to have both, senior masters and new innovators. In the preface to the second edition, the new procedures of the day were NOTES, ESD, and advanced imaging. Much has passed since 2010. NOTES (natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery) has largely waned, but it led endoscopy into the third space, the submucosa between the lumen and the outside (intra-abdominal) world. Submucosal endoscopy enabled POEMS (per-oral endoscopic myotomy surgery) for achalasia and its new variations, gastric-POEMS (for gastroparesis) and STER (submucosal tunnel endoscopic resection), for subepithelial tumors. New devices such as over-thescope clips have enabled safe closure of full-thickness defects. Initially, these were applied to unplanned perforations and bleeding, but as we became increasingly confident of closure, they enabled planned full-thickness resection of tumors and even tissue sampling of the gastroenteric nervous system, which further opens new methods of research and treatment.
