GERD Book Excerpt:

This volume provides a detailed and comprehensive review of current knowledge concerning all aspects of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD). The opening chapters on its pathogenesis and epidemiology include discussions of Helicobacter pylori as an etiological agent, and Barrett's esophagus. The bulk of the volume is taken up with critical reviews of all the contemporary approaches to GERD - both medical and surgical (open and laparoscopic) - and presents the early results from laparoscopic trials throughout the world. The book concludes with detailed descriptions from expert practitioners of the various alternative laparoscopic fundoplication techniques. This timely publication will be of interest not only to gastroenterologists and gastrointestinal surgeons, but to all doctors and general practitioners who must advise and prescribe treatment for patients with this common, distressing, but remediable complaint.

GERD Book Excerpt:

Gastroesophageal Reflux Disease (GERD) is one of the most common maladies of mankind. Approximately 40% of the adult population of the USA suffers from significant heartburn and the numerous antacids advertised incessantly on national television represents a $8 billion per year drug market. The ability to control acid secretion with the increasingly effective acid-suppressive agents such as the H2 blockers (pepcid, zantac) and proton pump inhibitors (nexium, prevacid) has given physicians an excellent method of treating the symptoms of acid reflux. Unfortunately, this has not eradicated reflux disease. It has just changed its nature. While heartburn, ulceration and strictures have become rare, reflux-induced adenocarcinoma of the esophagus is becoming increasingly common. Adenocarcinoma of the esophagus and gastric cardia is now the most rapidly increasing cancer type in the Western world. The increasing incidence of esophageal adenocarcinoma has created an enormous interest and stimulus for research in this area. GERD brings together a vast amount of disparate literature and presents the entire pathogenesis of reflux disease in one place. In addition to providing a new concept of how gastroesophageal reflux causes cellular changes in the esophagus, GERD also offers a complete solution to a problem that has confused physicians for over a century. Both clinical and pathological information about reflux disease and its treatment are presented. GERD is meant to be used as a comprehensive reference for gastroenterologists, esophageal surgeons, and pathologists alike. Outlines how gastroesophageal reflux causes cellular changes in the esophagus Brings together the pathogenesis of the disease in one source and applies it toward clinical treatment Tom DeMeester is THE leading international expert on reflux disease; Parakrama Chandrasoma is one of the leading pathologists in the area Book contains approximately 350 illustrations Ancillary web site features color illustrations: www.chandrasoma.com

Integrated Medical and Surgical Gastroenterology Book Excerpt:

This textbook covers the entire spectrum of both benign and malignant gastrointestinal disorders. It is unique in its multidisciplinary approach and focuses on practical issues in day-to-day clinical care. The complexity of novel diagnostic modalities and the great variety in therapeutic options, both medically and surgically, require an integrated, multidisciplinary approach. Therefore, each topic in this textbook is first discussed by two gastroenterologists and subsequently by two digestive surgeons. If appropriate, interventional radiologists, internists and pathologists have also contributed. Specific subchapters on gastrointestinal malignancies have been added, written by medical and radiation oncologists. Nowadays, many hospitals and medical schools change their infrastructure from discipline-oriented to patient-/disease-oriented. In fact, this textbook describes what the medical gastroenterologist should know about surgical gastroenterology and vice-versa. A large number of drawings in full color helps the reader to get a clear picture of many technical procedures.

Having Been Said Book Excerpt:

Lawrence Weiner's art uses language in reference to materials. Language itself is a material and at the same time a means of presentation of his work. Weiner evolved this approach in the context of the Conceptual art of the late 60s, yet he does not see his own work as "conceptual." The "space" he works within is the entire cultural context, and his works are associated with various different media and forms of presentation: books, posters, videos, films, records, drawings, multiples, installations indoors and outdoors, and more. Since his earliest days as a professional artist, Weiner has given written and verbal expression to questions concerning his work and its context. These utterances--statements, interviews, lectures and conference contributions--have been collected together in this publication for the first time, and ordered chronologically. Taken as a whole they afford an insight both into a complex individual biography and into the wider development of art and culture and the challenge that this entails.
