Since the first edition of Clinical Pancreatology for Practising Gastroenterologists and Surgeons was first published sixteen years ago, the knowledge and clinical management of pancreatic diseases have developed markedly. Thanks to the development of translational research and the “from bench to bedside” concept, much progress from the lab has been applied to clinical practice. Additionally, several highly relevant clinical trials published over the last decade have resulted in the updating and optimisation of clinical guidelines.
A new and validated classification of the severity and complications of acute pancreatitis that is firmly rooted in clinical practice has become the basis for the development of minimally invasive approaches to pancreatic necrosis. The etiopathogenic knowledge of chronic pancreatitis and other pancreatopaties, like that associated with diabetes mellitus, has developed significantly. Increased study of cystic pancreatic tumours, which has been reflected in the publication of several guidelines and consensus reports over the last few years, is especially important. Most research efforts have focused on pancreatic cancer, which have led and will further lead to a significant increase in the therapeutic armamentarium against this devastating disease. Finally, many newly published studies have changed the concept, causes, clinical relevance, diagnosis and treatment of exocrine pancreatic insufficiency. Updates based on these developments and more are included in the new edition of Clinical Pancreatology for Practising Gastroenterologists and Surgeons.
This new edition of Clinical Pancreatology for Practising Gastroenterologists and Surgeons is a result of the collaboration between the world's leading experts in each area of clinical pancreatology, with the aim of facilitating gastroenterologists, surgeons, oncologists, internists, nutritionists, diabetologists, paediatricians, radiologists, pathologists and other specialists in their daily clinical practice. This book is an indispensable update providing leading knowledge in clinical pancreatology.
