Fully revised and updated for the new edition, the Oxford Handbook of Gastroenterology and Hepatology comprises a unique A-Z compendium of the specialty, and a dedicated section detailing 30 of the most common problems in GI medicine, which can be used as a quick reference.A new section on clinical practice and diagnostics provides valuable new guidance on diagnostic procedures and reduces the time needed to search for each individual procedure and its associated complications. Further enhanced sections include emergencies, and commonly used drugs used ingastroenterology and hepatology, with emphasis on practice tips and common complications. Reflecting current approaches in training and curricula, the handbook has been arranged to reflect a clinical problems-based approach. Navigability has been enhanced, with a comprehensive index as well as an anatomical index being added to the existing A-Z format to ensure the right information willalways be at your fingertips. The result of this new approach is a handbook which is practical, easy-to-use, and informative. It is an essential guide to the management of common conditions and is invaluable to all those involved in the care of patients with gastrointestinal disease.

Editorial Reviews

`Review from previous edition This small but very pleasant book covers in a very individual and intelligent manner almost all daily gastrointestinal problems encountered in the clinic and on the wards...The authors are to be congratulated for having produced this must-have handbook which willbe appreciated equally by junior doctors in training and by those immersed in busy hospital medical departments.'
