About this book

Pancreatic diseases are a crucial issue not only because of their epidemiological significance, and their anatomical and metabolic complexity, but also because of the different treatment options available and their implications for surgery.

Due to the slow but steady increase in the incidence of pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer, these diseases are today a real challenge for the surgeon. This volume presents the state of the art of surgery in the treatment of inflammatory and neoplastic pancreatic diseases, describing in detail the different approaches and their most relevant technical aspects. Also described are conventional and interventional radiology, operative endoscopy and endoscopic ultrasonography (which has recently acquired a diagnostic role), and adjuvant and neoadjuvant therapy for treatment or palliation: for only a multidisciplinary approach can produce a global vision, a winning strategy for the optimization of results.

Along with the texts, all written by experts, the volume includes color images and drawings. It will prove itself a very useful tool in clinical practice.
