About this book

In recent years, substantial progress has been made in the approaches to diagnosis and treatment of severe liver diseases in the pediatric ICU, from various forms of liver failure and hepatitis to acute and chronic liver disease. New techniques and tools are being utilized to prevent patients from experiencing complications and for patients in recovery from operations on the native or donor liver. This book describes the clinical presentation and management of liver diseases in the intensive care unit with the pediatric patient in mind. In addition, advances in bone marrow transplantation, cardiac-generated liver disorders and new therapeutic approaches, such as artificial liver support, are discussed in detail. 
Presenting the current available knowledge in a compelling form, Liver Diseases in the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit is a valuable resource for pediatric gastroenterologists and hepatologists, pediatricians and intensivists.
