Here is the completely revised, updated, and improved Second Edition of the classic Blackstone volume, Endoscopic Interpretation: Normal and Pathologic Appearances of the Gastrointestinal Tract - the definitive reference on the techniques and procedures of endoscopic interpretation. Normal and abnormal findings and also how to proceed from those findings, are covered in this impressive volume, essential for both trainees and experienced endoscopists. The Second Edition expands on the comprehensive coverage of the First Edition, and includes all new illustrations, many in full colour. The book is organised for ease of use and maximum utility. For each organ, the contributors (all experts in the field) explain the best endoscopic techniques and methods of examination. The normal appearance of each organ and the typical alterations caused by involvement of inflammatory or neoplastic processes are described. Postsurgical changes of each gastrointestinal organ are described as well. A major strength of the book is its emphasis on ways of distinguishing normal variants from pathological lesions.
Major sections focus on the esophagus, the stomach, the duodenum, upper gastrointestinal bleeding, the intestine, the colon, the biliary tract, and the pancreas. Superb high-quality illustrations throughout the book provide invaluable enhancements of important anatomy, pathophysiology, and pathology points discussed in the text
