The most encyclopedic book on the pancreas -- providing clear guidance for practicing clinicians & surgeons.

In the past decade, extraordinary developments in diagnostic and therapeutic radiology and endoscopy have been coupled with major advances in surgical techniques and basic sciences. As a result the management of pancreatic disorders is now handled by a multidisciplinary team.

This book shows you how to achieve superior patient management by taking the team approach to in-hospital care.

For all known pancreatic disorders, it details the latest knowledge on genetics and molecular biological background in terms of anatomy, physiology, pathology, and pathophysiology.

The editor and author team are leading pancreatologists of high international repute and they present global best-practice using the newest diagnosis and treatment principles.

A timely section on early and late outcome data considers the benefits of management including chemotherapy and immune therapy. Carefully incorporating the latest evidence based data, the book also discusses early diagnosis, limited surgical treatment, oncology, treatment results and the option of transplantation.

This new edition contains more than 400 illustrations, line drawings and radiographs to provide a step-by-step approach to endoscopic techniques and surgical procedures. With The Pancreas, second edition, you can achieve a greater understanding of the principles of surgical treatment in one reference point.
