Atlas of Liver Pathology
Gary C. Kanel, Jacob Korula
"The Atlas of Liver Pathology", by Drs. Gary C. Kanel and Jacob Korula, provides the visual guidance you need to accurately diagnose all forms of liver disease. Organized by disease type, it points out major histological features, updates disease parameters with new images and diagrams, and helps you understand the clinical aspects of each disease. In print and online, it provides quick and convenient reference to virtually all of the liver disorders commonly seen today. Nine-hundred-plus high-quality, full-color images capture the gross and histological presentation of liver pathology ideal for comparison to the specimens you encounter in practice.
Video Atlas: Liver, Biliary & Pancreatic Surgery
Leslie H. Blumgart
"Video Atlas of Anatomy and Techniques in Liver, Biliary and Pancreatic Surgery" demonstrates advanced techniques used to train surgeons all over the world. Dr. Leslie H Blumgart has developed an extensive library of high-quality, narrated, and captioned videos that present history, radiologic evidence, and operative procedures - from major and minor resectional procedures to biliary and pancreatic anastomotic techniques. Dr. Carlos Corvera has worked with Dr. Blumgart to contribute laparoscopic alternatives to these innovative and landmark surgeries. On DVD, in print, and online at website, this multimedia resource provides detailed, practical instruction on this challenging area of surgery.
Protocols and Clinical Research

Clem Imrie and Colin Johnson This book stems from an unusual meeting held in The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow in March 2007. Enthusiastic doctors in the diagnosis and treatment of pancreatic diseases were arranged in small groups to discuss specific unsolved/partially clinical problems and suggest the way forward. In some instances, the recommendations were initial improved longitudinal studies, while in others better double-blind randomized st- ies. The recommendations were then presented on the second day before the total 40 plus participants who added their input. Finally, the mechanics of initiating the proposals were arranged. The editors are most thankful to the authors from the meeting, who have ass- bled the various contributions to this stimulating volume. xi Part I Potential Trials in Acute Pancreatitis Chapter 1 Acute Pancreatitis in Intensive Care John Kinsella, Barry Clements, Euan Dickson, Thierry Dugernier, and Martin Hughes 1.1 Intr oduction Severe acute pancreatitis is associated with the development of the systemic inflammatory response syndrome (SIRS). Hypoxemia is a hallmark of acute pancreatitis and respiratory failure is the most common single organ failure in this disease. In the most severely ill patients mul- organ dysfunction syndrome (MODS) and multi-organ failure (MOF) occur. Intensive care with multiple organ support is necessary.
Novel Therapies in Hepatitis C Virus, an Issue of Clinics in Liver Disease

Basic research discusses the implication of pancreatic stress protein in acute pancreatitis and pancreatic cancer and their possible role as therapeutic targets. Also, very original results show the unexpected role of lipids as mediators during acute pancreatitis. Gene screening strategies allow the detection of the genes responsible for gemcitabine resistance of pancreatic cancer cells. They lead to the selection of several target genes, in order to suppress the resistance of cells to gemcitabine treatment. The mechanism by which tetrahydrocannabinol is anti-tumoral in pancreatic cancer cells is presented and the use of THC as a promising new therapeutic agent is discussed. Genetic data are shown concerning hundreds of families with hereditary chronic pancreatitis and their possible role in the pathogenesis of the disease. Another very original study addresses the prevention and treatment of pancreatic diseases with diet. In clinical research, convincing data about the use of endoscopic sphicterotomy in the management of acute bilary pancreatitis is presented, based on the experience of a Center highly specialized in pancreatic diseases.
An Integrated Textbook of Basic Science, Medicine and Surgery

editore: Wiley-Blackwell (an imprint of John Wiley & Sons Ltd)
The encyclopedic guide to the pancreas for practicing clinicians and surgeons In the past decade extraordinary developments in diagnostic and therapeutic radiology and endoscopy have been coupled with major advances in surgical techniques and basic sciences. As a result the management of pancreatic disorders is now handled by a multidisciplinary team. This book shows you how to achieve superior patient management by taking the team approach to in-hospital care. Fully revised and updated, this new edition of The Pancreas: An Integrated Textbook of Basic Science, Medicine and Surgery details the latest knowledge on genetics and molecular biological background in terms of anatomy, physiology, pathology, and pathophysiology for all known pancreatic disorders. The Editor and author team are leading pancreatologists of high international repute and they present global best-practice and evidence-based knowledge in this comprehensive reference. A timely section on early and late outcome data considers the benefits of management including chemotherapy and immune therapy. Incorporating evidence-based data, the book also focuses on early diagnosis, limited surgical treatment, oncology, treatment results and the option of transplantation. This new edition contains more than 400 illustrations, line drawings and radiographs to provide a step-by-step approach to endoscopic techniques and surgical procedures. With The Pancreas: An Integrated Textbook of Basic Science, Medicine and Surgery, Second Edition, you can achieve a greater understanding of current diagnostic, medical and surgical treatment principles in one authoritative reference point.
Novel Concepts in Biology and Therapy

The incidence of chronic pancreatitis continues to increase in the Western world. Its pathophysiology is still controversial, but in recent years knowledge of its etiological aspects has increased and new pathophysiological concepts have been presented. There have been new developments in diagnosing the disease, especially through improvements in imaging techniques such as endosonography, CT and MRI and MRCP. It is generally agreed that the primary approach to treatment of chronic pancreatitis should be conservative. The treatment of complications, however, is still a matter of debate between physicians, gastroenterologists and surgeons. This book contains contributions by leading pancreatologists from around the world summarizing the latest developments in the fields of chronic pancreatitis: Etiology; Pathophysiology; Diagnostics; and, Conservative, interventional and surgical treatment. Students, general practitioners and clinicians will all benefit from this presentation.
