This book is an authoritative, comprehensive and up-to-date review of the pathophysiological basis, diagnosis and management of disorders of the blood vessels that supply the gastrointestinal tract and major solid abdominal organs. Impaired blood supply of the viscera can have disastrous consequences such as multiple organ failure. Previously under-diagnosed, these conditions are becoming recognized as important contributors to post-operative morbidity and mortality. Written by leading international figures, Diseases of the Visceral Circulation analyses in depth these conditions and their management by conservative, interventional radiological and surgical therapies. With this subject rapidly gaining momentum as both a research area and a topic of significant clinical importance, the book provides a timely and balanced discussion of the field.
