About this Book

The leading reference text entirely devoted to this increasingly significant condition

This text is dedicated to Barrett's esophagus and provides recent evidence and current approaches to patient management. It has been completely revised, updated and extended to include the latest research findings and describes how these affect day-to-day clinical practice.

It includes seven new chapters and even more color images than the last edition. Each chapter, written by the leading international experts in the field, provides clear, didactic guidance on diagnosis, treatment and management of this condition.

Barrett's Espohagus gives an extensive overview covering epidemiology, screening, pathology, gastroenterology and surgery. It looks at the precursor lesions leading to the development of Barrett's epithelium, the unique characteristics of Barrett's esophagus, and the consequences of malignant degeneration. All aspects of diagnosis, secondary prevention, multimodality, and medical and surgical treatment are clearly explained.

This is a complete guide on the latest thinking on diagnosis and treatment of Barrett's esophagus which can be referred to over and over again.
