Are you a student or resident taking a gastroenterology rotation, a fellow in gastroenterology training, or a practitioner approaching GI recertification?
Do you need a rapid-reference, essential guide to help refresh your clinical knowledge?
Essentials of Gastroenterology provides students, residents, and gastroenterologists, especially those in training, with a highly practical, concise guide to the GI system and its major diseases.
Full color throughout, the book covers all conditions encountered during GI training and education programs and in the clinical setting. With a strong focus on the clinical aspects of GI disease, it highlights the specific scenarios you will be presented with when managing your patients on the wards.
Each section looks at a particular area of the GI tract, with each disease-related chapter examining the following:
- overview of normal function
- physiology and pathophysiology
- clinical presentation
- differential diagnosis
- diagnostic tests
- treatment/management options
In addition, there is a section dedicated to the most common symptoms that patients present with, as well as a picture gallery of common GI conditions such as peptic ulcers and inflammatory bowel disease.
Drs. Sitaraman and Friedman have ensured that the key emphasis throughout is on providing easy-to-assimilate, rapid-reference information on each GI condition, achieved through the use of color-coded text features such as key facts, potential pitfalls, and practice tips. Packed with multiple choice questions and specific clinical case studies, the book also draws upon the guidelines and recommendations of the world’s leading gastroenterology societies – the AGA, ASGE, ACG, BSG, WGO, and UEGF.
