Gastrointestinal Emergencies 3E provides practical, up–to–date guidance for gastroenterologists, endoscopists, surgeons, emergency and acute physicians, medical students and trainees managing patients presenting with GI complications and/or emergencies.

Combining a symptom section, a specific conditions section and a section that examines complications (and solutions) of GI procedures, focus throughout is on clear, specific how–to guidance, for use before a procedure or immediately after emergency stabilization.  An evidence–based approach to presentation, diagnosis and investigation is utilized throughout.

New to this third edition are several brand new chapters covering various complications of procedures and specific conditions not previously featured, as well as a thorough look at the many diagnostic and therapeutic advances in recent years.  In addition, every chapter from the current edition has undergone wholesale revision to ensure it is updated with the very latest in management guidelines and clinical practice.  Once again, full range of emergencies encountered in daily clinical practice will be examined, such as acute pancreatitis, esophageal perforation, capsule endoscopy complications, acute appendicitis, and the difficulties after gastrointestinal procedures. International guidelines from the world s key gastroenterology societies will be included in relevant chapters.

Gastrointestinal Emergencies 3E is the definitive reference guide for the management of gastrointestinal emergencies and endoscopic complications, and the perfect accompaniment for the modern–day gastroenterologist, surgeon, emergency and acute physicians.

Every Emergency Department, GI/endoscopy unit, medical/surgical admission unit should keep a copy close at hand for quick reference.
