Oesophagogastric Surgery meets the needs of surgeons in higher training and practising consultants for a contemporary and evidence-based account of this sub-specialty that is relevant to their general surgical practice. It is a practical reference source incorporating the most current information on recent developments, management issues and operative procedures. The text is thoroughly referenced and supported by evidence-based recommendations wherever possible, distinguishing between strong evidence to support a conclusion, and evidence suggesting that a recommendation can be reached on the balance of probabilities.
For this Sixth Edition the authorship team across the series has been expanded to include additional European and World experts, with an increased emphasis on global practice. Throughout all six volumes the contents have been extensively revised in line with recently published evidence. Detailed supportive key references are provided and are also included within the comprehensive list of references in the accompanying ebook. Links to recommended online videos have been added where appropriate.
The Companion to Specialist Surgical Practice series provides a current and concise summary of the key topics within the major sub-specialties of general surgery.
Each volume highlights evidence-based practice both in the text and within the extensive list of references at the end of every chapter.
This new Sixth Edition includes contributions from a number of world renowned authors which reflects the global nature of oesophagogastric surgery. In particular, to reflect the increasing role of bariatric surgery, there are three new chapters covering obesity, bariatric surgical procedures, and the follow up and outcomes of bariatric surgery. Other chapters have been extensively revised by world experts and include up to date evidence and advances in the assessment, management, and treatment of oesophagogastric disease.
