About this book

Neurogastroenterology is devoted to "study the interface of all aspects of the digestive system with the different branches of the nervous system". Over the past 15 years advances in this field has greatly improved our understanding in primary functional and motility disorders in children. Neurogastroenterology has also begun to revolutionize our vision of "organic" diseases like inflammatory bowel disease, obesity, diabetes as well as microbial-host interactions. Major advances have also been achieved during these years in the knowledge of mechanisms of development of the enteric nervous system at the molecular level allowing a better understanding of diseases related to developmental anomalies and opening perspectives to new treatments with stem cells.

Pediatric Neurogastroenterology: Gastrointestinal Motility and Functional Disorders in Children is dedicated to report the most accurate and recent knowledge in the field. Written by the world-renown experts, the book covers the field by providing a comprehensive and up-to-date review and practical guide to pediatric gastrointestinal motility and functional disorders for pediatricians, pediatric gastroenterologists, adult gastroenterologists and all professionals involved in the treatment of children with such disorders.
