The thoroughly updated and greatly expanded fourth edition of the best-selling Handbook of Gastroenterologic Procedures covers all diagnostic and therapeutic procedures in current use for adult and pediatric patients.

Fifty procedures—both endoscopic and non-endoscopic—are described in a concise, structured, easy-to-follow format that includes indications, contraindications, patient preparation, equipment, technique, post-procedure care, and complications. Over 100 drawings guide readers through key steps.

This edition includes new diagnostic procedures and many new therapeutic endoscopy chapters. Appendices provide information on organizing a procedure unit, handling specimens, doses of GI drugs, guidelines for endoscopic screening and surveillance, and CPT codes, plus a listing of major equipment vendors and websites.
