About this Book

There have been many advances in the management of this condition since the first edition of Gastrointestinal Bleeding. This new edition, thoroughly revised and restructured, includes the latest updates on all areas of the field of GI Bleeding, systematically covering all the areas of the GI tract, from upper GI to lower GI, through to small bowel bleeding.

It fully covers the different types of bleeding that can occur, from peptic ulcer through to variceal bleeding and looks at new developments and pioneering techniques in the field, including endoscopy and balloon-enteroscopy. A methodology section describes the latest design of clinical trials in GI bleeding and this edition now highlights the new guidelines on UGIB (Upper gastrointestinal bleeding).

This new edition of Gastrointestinal Bleeding is an invaluable purchase for all gastroenterologists, both in training and fully qualified.
