The various disorders of the pancreas and biliary tree described in this new text will be encountered in any primary care practice. For example, gallstones are prevalent worldwide and a significant cause of morbidity and mortality; gallbladder carcinoma is the fifth most common gastrointestinal cancer in the USA, and at least 45,000 North Americans will die every year from diseases of the pancreas.

This book provides expert and clear guidance on the diagnosis and management of the disorders that affect these systems and is an invaluable addition to the reference resources of the primary care team.

  • Highly detailed step-by-step guide to the clinical features, diagnosis, surgical and pharmacological treatments, management of complications and future trends in the management of all major pancreatic disorders

Reviews
'If you've been diagnosed with pancreatitis and you are still in the dark about the disease, then this is the book for you, and your GP, who probably has a very limited knowledge of what it is, and the treatment required.' Stuart Wood, Cumbria, on amazon.co.uk (5-star review), 9th September 2009

'I strongly recommend this book as a resource for the busy healthcare professional, both during their training and in practice. It would be a valuable asset for medical students and residents trying to learn about pancreatic and biliary tract diseases during their training.' Canadian Journal of Gastroenterology, 2007

'I think it is a wonderful addition to the literature in a number of ways. It is concise and thought through. The graphics are especially helpful. The information is succinct - and yet presented in a very integrated manner.' Pancreatica.org (Lorenzen Cancer Foundation)

'This is a well-written, easy to read, quick reference to diseases of the pancreas and biliary tract for physicians in training or general practitioners. The quality of the illustrations and tables is very good, enhancing the learning experience. Some of the topics are explained in a very simple but complete way, making it a very good source of reference'. Doody's Review

'This book provides expert and clear guidance on the diagnosis and management of the disorders that affect these systems and is an invaluable addition to the reference resources of the primary care team, for nurses in practice and in training and those who teach.' Society of Gastroenterological Nurses and Endoscopy Associates
