Digestive Endoscopy in the Second Millenium

From the Lichtleiter to Echoendoscopy

Francisco Vilardell

editore: Thieme Publishing Group

pagine: 356

The rise of modern endoscopy -- and the myriad techniques that it has engendered -- is one of the most compelling success stories in modern medicine. Digestive Endoscopy in the Second Millennium is a balanced, comprehensive history of the field, from the early tubes, candles, and catheters that preceded modern endoscopes to sophisticated techniques, such as endoscopic ultrasonography, diagnostic and therapeutic laparoscopy, and many others. Meticulously researched, the book features all of the major advances in endoscopy over the past century, along with the stories of the highly creative medical and technical innovators behind them -- from Bozzini and Kussmaul to the present. Rare archival photographs and illustrations of people, places, instruments, and pathology supplement the text. Recognized worldwide as a leader in the field, Francisco Vilardell traces the stories of the forerunners of endoscopy, rigid gastroscopes, the semi-flexible gastroscope; the emergence of optical fiber fiberscopy and rigid esophagoscopy; the evolution of rigid rectosigmoidoscopy, fibercolonoscopy, and biliopancreatic endoscopy, and more. A uniquely valuable resource for all those who practice and teach digestive endoscopy, this elegant volume also offers fascinating historical insight into man's never-ending quest to explore the inner workings of the human body.

Pathophysiology of the Enteric Nervous System

A Basis for Understanding Functional Diseases

David Grundy, Robin Spiller

editore: Blackwell Publishing Ltd

pagine: 272

Over the last few years there have been huge advances made in our understanding of the interactions between the brain and the gut - the enteric nervous system. This book is particularly relevant in the understanding, diagnosis and management of irritable bowel syndrome - the most common functional disorder of the bowel. IBS has been diagnosed in 10-20 per cent of adults in the US, and symptoms of IBS are responsible for more than 3 million visits to the physician in the US. This book is aimed at specialist gastroenterologists but also should be of interest for trainees and fellows in gastroenterology, as well as PCPs and GPs with an interest in this subject.
