This book is the first to provide balanced examination of both pediatric liver disease and liver transplantation – two topics that are inherently related, given that most chronic liver disorders eventually require organ replacement. The different forms of liver disease encountered in the pediatric age group are first discussed in a series of disease-specific chapters that have a reader-friendly, uniform structure covering pathophysiology, diagnostic and treatment algorithms, clinical cases, and transition to adult care. Key topics in the field of liver transplantation are then addressed. Examples include indications and contraindications, surgical techniques and complications, immunosuppression, in pediatric liver transplantation, acute and chronic rejection and allograft dysfunction, and CMV and EBV infection in transplant recipients, long-term graft injury and tolerance. A section on pediatric hepatology across the world includes chapters presenting the features and management of pediatric liver disease in South-America, Africa and Asia. A closing section considers what the future holds for pediatric liver disease and its management, including novel genetic testing, cell therapy and gene therapy. Pediatric Hepatology and Liver Transplantation will be of value for a range of practitioners, from residents making their first approach to pediatric liver disease through to specialists working in transplantation centers.
This book discusses the management of variceal bleeding in liver cirrhosis, covering a wide range of topics, including epidemiology, mechanism, diagnosis and monitoring, prophylaxis, treatment, and prognostic assessment. It also presents the latest research in the field, such as non-invasive approaches, self-expanding metal stents, hemostatic powder, and early TIPS. The book is a valuable resource for physicians wanting to establish standard treatment strategies, researchers launching innovative clinical and experimental studies, and also for patients and their relatives wishing to gain a better understanding of this disease.
This clinical casebook provides a concise yet comprehensive state-of-the-art review of liver disease.

Diseases covered include drug-induced liver injury, acute hepatitis, chronic hepatitis, NAFLD, and cholangitis. Scenarios such as liver disease in pregnancy, elevated liver function tests, and liver transplants are also presented in the casebook.
