The essential guide to mastering endoscopic techniques of the upper GI

While technological advances have made endoscopy one of the most common
procedures for examining the upper GI tract, learning how to maneuver the
instruments and interpret the images can be frustrating for those without
experience. Designed specifically for those in training, Endoscopy of the Upper
GI Tract -- with its more than 770 illustrations and user-friendly format -- is
the most comprehensive instructional guide available.

Beginning with a detailed introduction to all aspects of the endoscopic examination, this lavishly
illustrated guide features:

Clear descriptions and images of all of the
instruments and how and when they are used
Artfully combined photographs and
3D illustrations showing the exact location of the endoscope in relation to the
anatomy of the immediate region
Step-by-step instructions for handling the
endoscope, such as insertion, air insufflation, irrigation, and more
Useful checklists and tables that lay out the procedures from beginning to end,
including preparations, necessary medication and anesthesia, required staff and
supplemental equipment, potential risks and complications, etc.

The book also encompasses a complete full-color atlas that illustrates the entire spectrum of
both normal and pathological findings. In addition to detailed explanations of
each finding, the authors provide:

The endoscopic criteria and the most important differential diagnoses for each disorder
Series of images showing common variants, as well as comparison photographs of differential diagnoses
Useful guidelines for proper documentation

A guide to interventional and extended examination techniques rounds out the text. All procedures, from
treating upper gastrointestinal bleeding and collecting specimens to placing a
duodenal tube and removing foreign bodies, are treated in full detail.

With its generous layout -- only one procedure is featured on every page -- and copious
high-quality illustrations, Endoscopy of the Upper GI Tract is an essential for
anyone wishing to master the subtleties of this most rewarding
