About The Product

Proceedings of the Third Baveno International Consensus Workshop on Definitions, Methodology and Therapeutic Strategies.

The participants attempted to develop consensus definitions of key events in portal hypertension and variceal bleeding, diagnostic and therapeutic issues, and the complications of therapies for portal hypertension, as well as producing updated guidelines. The lectures summarized the consensus reached in the earlier workshops, addressed two important new areas of research, and analyzed the quality of trials in portal hypertension and other fields of hepatology.
