The SAGES Manual of Biliary Surgery

The SAGES Manual of Biliary Surgery

The SAGES Manual of Biliary Surgery

Although benign biliary disease is an area in which many surgeons have experience, there are many nuances to providing the highest quality of surgical care. The biliary anatomy is unique but presents with anatomical variances and can be distorted by benign pathology. Biliary surgery has been one of the areas where minimally invasive techniques were first applied in the late 1980s. However, surgical technique has continued to evolve due to acquisition of advanced minimal surgical skills and improvement in surgical technology. The expertise, sage, and knowledge of the members of the Society of American Gastrointestinal and Endoscopic Surgery (SAGES) have prioritized the creation of this manual on modern biliary surgery.

This manual will provide the standard for the current state of biliary surgery in the 21st century. The SAGES Manual of Biliary Surgery will align with the new SAGES University Masters program. The Manual supplements the Masters Program Biliary Surgery Pathway. Its goal is to help the surgeon progress from the competent to the proficient and finally to the mastery level.

Atlas of Gastrointestinal Pathology

Atlas of Gastrointestinal Pathology: A Pattern Based Approach to Neoplastic Biopsies

Atlas of Gastrointestinal Pathology

Closely mirroring the daily sign-out process, Atlas of Gastrointestinal Pathology: A Pattern Based Approach to Neoplastic Biopsies is a highly illustrated, efficient guide to accurate diagnosis. This practical reference uses a proven, pattern-based approach to clearly explain how to interpret challenging cases by highlighting red flags in the clinical chart and locating hidden clues in the slides. Useful as a daily “scope-side guide,” it features numerous clinical and educational features that help you find pertinent information, reach a correct diagnosis, and assemble a thorough and streamlined pathology report.

  • More than 1,600 high-quality photomicrographs capture the subtle morphologic spectrum of neoplastic processes of the tubular GI tract. Each image is captioned with key diagnostic considerations and includes call-outs showing subtle features and diagnostic clues.
  • Practical tools throughout the text include:
    • Tables that emphasize salient clinicopathologic features, management implications, and therapeutic options o Discussions of how and when to incorporate molecular tools o Checklists for key elements of the diagnostic approach and sample notes for inclusion in pathology reports
    • Relevant endoscopic images, photographs of select gross specimens, and medical figures
    • Brief reviews of normal histology that provide contrast to succeeding patterns
    • “Pearls and Pitfalls” and “Near Misses” sections with lessons from real life sign-out experience
    • “Frequently Asked Questions” sections that discuss common diagnostic dilemmas
    • “Sample Note” sections that offer a template of how to synthesize complicated or especially challenging topics
    • Quizzes in every chapter that provide experience with high-yield, board-style teaching topics

Best of Five MCQS for the European Specialty Examination in Gastroenterology and Hepatology 2nd Edition

Best of Five MCQS for the European Specialty Examination in Gastroenterology and Hepatology 2nd Edition

Best of Five MCQS for the European Specialty Examination in Gastroenterology and Hepatology 2nd Edition

The new edition of The Best of Five MCQS for the European Specialty Examination in Gastroenterology and Hepatology is a question book designed to assist in preparations for the European Specialty Examination in Gastroenterology and Hepatology (ESEGH). The book has been fully updated to reflect
the new examination introduced in 2018 and the most recent guidelines.

Containing a foreword by Sir Ian Gilmore, former president of both the British Society for Gastroenterology and the Royal College of Physicians, the book adopts the same Best of Five question format used in the ESEGH and covers the breadth of the curriculum. It has been designed to exactly match the relative proportion of questions on each topic area found in the examination.

FOR MORE MEDICAL BOOKS AND TUTORIALS VISIT EDOWNLOADS.ME

Each of the 300 questions contained in the book is accompanied by an answer, a set of three succinct bullet points of key ‘take-home’ messages, and a short summary of the relevant background, evidence-base and up-to-date European guidelines. The book ends with a chapter of 50 questions, which again
matches the proportions of topic areas found in the ESEGH, and is designed to act as a mock-examination for use in the final stages of preparation.

Diffusion Weighted Imaging of the Hepatobiliary System

Diffusion Weighted Imaging of the Hepatobiliary System: Techniques and Clinical Applications

Diffusion Weighted Imaging of the Hepatobiliary System

This book presents the core principles and technical aspects of Diffusion Weighted Imaging (DWI), as well as pearls and pitfalls concerning the imaging technique’s application to the hepatobiliary system. All technical aspects and clinical applications discussed focus on the related anatomical region and its pathologies.

Though DWI is frequently used in the abdomen and pelvis, its clinical role is still evolving, especially for the diagnostic workup of oncologic patients. Although certain efforts have been undertaken to standardize and provide imaging guidelines for different clinical indications, the standardisation and clinical validation of quantitative DWI-related biomarkers are still works in progress.

Addressing this gap, the book offers a useful tool for radiologists with a particular interest in abdominal radiology, as well as for radiology residents.
