About this book

The discovery of H. pylori's major role in various acid-related diseases has wrought profound changes in the clinical approach to this family of conditions. In Diseases of the Gastroesophageal Mucosa: The Acid-Related Disorders, clinical experts synthesize for the practicing physician all the important developments in the diagnosis and treatment of these very common medical conditions. These highly experienced writers focus on conditions in which gastric acid is fundamentally implicated in specific pathophysiologies, and in which the modulation of gastric acidity influences the clinical response. They address the evaluation of patients suspected of harboring both peptic ulcers and ulcers from other causes, with emphasis on novel aspects of H. pylori infection. New information is also provided to assist clinicians in efficiently managing patients with dyspepsia and in the diagnosis and treatment of gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD), including its extraesophageal manifestations and upper gastrointestinal bleeding. The drugs used to treat these acid-related diseases are fully discussed.

Authoritative and highly readable, Diseases of the Gastroesophageal Mucosa: The Acid-Related Disorders distills a wealth of cutting-edge clinical practice into one readable volume that will help every clinician manage patients with today's best in diagnostic and treatment practices.

Reviews

"The text is well written and timely, and is divided into three major areas of interest - peptic ulcer diseases, classification and management of dyspepsia, and gastroesophageal reflux disease. The text is straightforward and easy to read. Each chapter is well referenced and well updated. Figures and tables are clearly defined and high in quality. In the section on peptic ulcer disease, a general overview and management of ulcer disease is described. A nice overview of important clinical aspects related to pharmacological management of ulcer disease is described. The text is informative and precise...Overall, the textbook represents a significant effort and beautiful overview of the subject of acid-related disease." - Canadian Journal of Gastroenterology

"This is an excellent book on the clinical evaluation and management of peptic ulcer disease and GERD. This book would be useful to practicing clinicians, both gastroenterologists and primary care physicians with an interest in this area." -Practical Gastroenterology

"It is a recommended book for all health science libraries." -E-STREAMS
