About this book

Atlas of Upper Gastrointestinal and Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Surgery covers in detail the technical aspects of all important procedures of the upper abdomen (esophagus, duodenum, stomach, liver, biliary system, pancreas, portal hypertension and spleen) including general, oncologic and transplantation surgery. Each chapter has been written by an expert renowned in his or her field and been reviewed by a second expert. All of the approximately 900 illustrations have been drawn by the same team of three artists of notable experience. The liver section follows the internationally accepted terminology of the Brisbane 2000 conference of the IHPBA. In this atlas experts of upper abdominal surgery share their experience and show how they do it - step by step.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"The editors of the Atlas of Upper Gastrointestinal and Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Surgery set out to provide a comprehensive atlas of surgical techniques encompassing the spectrum of disease processes … . The richness of the illustrations is certainly one of the features that make this atlas pleasing to read and a desirable work to own. This is an impressive surgical atlas that will be a valued addition to the library of surgeons in training and a rich resource for experienced gastrointestinal surgeons in practice." (Kevin G. Billingsley, World Journal of Surgery, Vol. 32, 2008)
