This textbook provides a comprehensive and state-of-the-art overview of the major issues specific to the field of pediatric gastroenterology, hepatology, and nutrition. The first part of the book, Gastroenterology and Nutrition, presents in a systematic way the overall scope of issues encountered by children (newborn to teenagers) suffering from disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, pancreas and/or presenting nutritional issues. These chapters are structured in logical sections to facilitate consultation and include major topics ranging from congenital disorders to gastrointestinal problems of the newborn, infectious diseases of the gastrointestinal tract, and approach to nutritional problems in the various pediatric ages. The second part of the book, Hepatology, is articulated in a series of chapters which present a comprehensive review of congenital and acquired disorders of the biliary tract and liver. This section also includes a critical analysis of available diagnostic and therapeutic procedures and future perspectives.
Written by experts in the field, Textbook of Pediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition: A Comprehensive Guide to Practice constitutes a much needed, innovative resource combining updated, reliable and comprehensive information with agile consultation for a streamlined approach to the care of children with such disorders.
“This book covers pediatric gastroenterology, hepatology, and nutrition. … The audience is practitioners who care for children. … This will be a useful addition to the reference library of any practitioner who works with children in the area of gastroenterology or hepatology. The book has many helpful pearls about some of the common presenting symptoms.” (Matthew M. Lute, Doody’s Book Reviews, March, 2016)
For its proportion and the extent at which subjects are treated, this book can be considered as a kind of “bible” for professionals in the field of pediatric gastroenterology, hepatology and nutrition. Overall, it has a less strictly didactic approach than the previous one and you can find more detailed and up-to-date information. At the same time, the list of contents at the beginning of the book is very clear and allows readers to easily identify the various sections one may want to focus on. I appreciate the fact that the book is dedicated to the memory of David Bransky, who unexpectedly died during the drafting phase of this book. To conclude, this book is really excellent and I highly recommend it.
