About this book

This volume provides a comprehensive summary of the field, with expert recommendations on prediction and management. It details the recent consensus guidelines (2012) updating the definition of pancreatitis and its complications. The text thoughtfully summarizes the current prediction models for severe acute pancreatitis, including laboratory, clinical and imaging parameters. It also highlights the relative advantages and disadvantages of several of these models. Evidenced-based guidelines into medical and surgical management of both the hospitalized and discharged patient are described, with recommendations from expert authors pertaining to various clinical situations. Finally, complications of acute pancreatitis and their management, including the use of cutting-edge minimally-invasive therapies, is discussed.

Prediction and Management of Severe Acute Pancreatitis will serve as the fundamental source for those interested in and treating this disease, including practicing gastroenterologists, surgeons, radiologists, intensivists, hospitalists and pathologists.

Reviews

“The audience is physicians involved in the treatment of patients with severe acute pancreatitis, including gastroenterologists, radiologists, intensivists, hospitalists, pathologists, and trainees. The book would be a valuable resource for gastrointestinal physicians and fellows, as well as hospitalists and intensivists. … This is a useful reference on all aspects of treating patients with acute pancreatitis. The potential complications of the disease process are discussed in detail. The chapter on nutritional support is especially helpful.” (Ryan R. Sefcik, Doody's Book Reviews, June, 2016)
