Essential reading for any gastroenterologists, surgeons, transplant teams or clinical nutritionists involved in the care of patients with intestinal failure
Intestinal failure is a challenging, emerging field that has been the subject of much research and debate in recent years and has only recently become widely accepted as a distinct clinical syndrome.
This comprehensive book provides an in-depth review of scientific theory and clinical practice relating to intestinal failure with specific emphasis on assessment and management as part of a multidisciplinary team. Compiled by an internationally recognised editorial team, the book provides a practical how-to guide to the management of adult and pediatric patients with intestinal failure, focusing on quality-of-life issues that are at the heart of patient care.
