YAMADA'S Handbook of Gastroenterology
The GI doctor’s classic portable, clinically-focused and authoritative reference, revised and updated
The revised and updated fourth edition of Yamada’s Handbook of Gastroenterology focuses on the clinical aspects of patients presenting with gastrointestinal and liver disease. The book is a portable, quick reference tool designed to assist trainees and practicing gastroenterologists in the practical assessment and clinical management of patients. The Handbook is divided into two parts; the first is symptom focused and the second highlights diseases. Each chapter features key practice points, essentials of diagnosis, potential pitfalls and case studies. In addition, the book includes multiple choice questions and answers to enhance understanding.
The fourth edition includes updated clinical practice guidelines from National Societies (American Gastroenterological Association, American Society for Gastrointestinal Endoscopy, American Association for the Study of Liver Disease and American College of Gastroenterology).
The new edition also offers many new photographs of endoscopic, radiographic and histopathologic images. This important resource:
