About this book

This volume covers the  pathophysiology, epidemiology, presentation, diagnosis, medical and surgical management of benign biliary stenosis. The book is uniquely structured in a way that allows areas of controversy to be highlighted through the use of a two chapter format for each topic. Each chapter topic is written by an expert in the field, with a second expert highlighting controversies and offering opposing viewpoints and treatment paradigms through a counterpoint chapter immediately following the primary chapter. The volume also features an array of diagrams and illustrations.      

 As an authoritative text on the clinical care of patients with benign biliary stenosis, Management of Benign Biliary Stenosis and Injury: A Comprehensive Guide is a valuable resource for all practitioners involved in the care of these patients, including gastroenterologists, gastrointestinal surgeons, surgical oncologists, and transplant physicians.​
