Gastrointestinal Tract Sonography in Fetuses and Children

 Gastroenterology/Hepatology, Pediatrics  Comments Off on Gastrointestinal Tract Sonography in Fetuses and Children
Feb 262019
 

Sonography of the gastrointestinal tract in fetuses, neonates and children entails no known biological risk, permits serial scanning and can provide information unobtainable with any other imaging modality. This book provides a comprehensive account of the current state of the art regarding sonography in this context. An introductory chapter compares the merits of sonography and magnetic resonance imaging of the fetal gastrointestinal tract. Subsequent chapters focus on the technique, pitfalls and findings in a wide variety of applications, including antropyloric diseases bowel obstruction, bowel wall thickening, colitis, appendicitis, intussusception, some abdominal wall and umbilical abnormalities, intraperitoneal tumors, and trauma. In each case the sonographic morphology is considered in depth with the aid of high-quality illustrations. A concluding chapter comprises a quiz based on 15 case reports. “Gastrointestinal Tract Sonography in Fetuses and Children” will be of value to all with an interest in this field.

Atlas of Laparoscopic Gastrectomy for Gastric Cancer: High Resolution Image for New Surgical Technique

 Gastroenterology/Hepatology, Oncology  Comments Off on Atlas of Laparoscopic Gastrectomy for Gastric Cancer: High Resolution Image for New Surgical Technique
Feb 192019
 

Due to recent advances in laparoscopic gastrectomy for gastric cancer, a high-resolution atlas in this field was felt necessary. This book describes the laparoscopic surgical procedure and precautions of lymph node (LN) dissection, comprehensively. The details of preoperative preparation, regional LN dissection, and digestive tract reconstruction are introduced based on a large numbers of clinical cases. Modified intracorporeal anastomosis procedure and clinical application of indo cyanine green (ICG) in LN dissection are included. This atlas will be of benefit to gastrointestinal surgeons, surgical oncologists, and minimally invasive surgeons.

Lymph Node Metastasis in Gastrointestinal Cancer

 Gastroenterology/Hepatology, Oncology  Comments Off on Lymph Node Metastasis in Gastrointestinal Cancer
Feb 122019
 

This book provides the most comprehensive and up-to-date knowledge of lymph node micrometastasis (LMM) and sentinel node navigation surgery (SNNS) in gastrointestinal cancers.

Lymph node metastasis is a critically important prognostic factor in gastrointestinal tract cancers such as tumors of the esophagus, stomach, and colorectum. An understanding of the basic aspects of lymphatics and lymph nodes, including anatomy, histology, physiology, immunology, and molecular biology, is fundamental for physicians who are involved in cancer treatment. Furthermore, owing to the development of molecular and biological methodology, the precise recognition of LMM and its clinical significance have been clarified recently.

At the same time, SNNS has actually been anticipated in treatment of breast tumors, and it is now being introduced in gastrointestinal tract cancer. For the application of SNNS, the detection of lymph node metastasis including LMM is extremely significant, because the presence of LMM determines the direction for surgery and chemo and/or radiation therapy.

With these considerations in mind, the expert contributors to this book review basic and clinical approaches for LMM and SNNS including methodology for gastrointestinal cancers. Thus this volume benefits not only surgeons who treat gastrointestinal cancers but also clinical oncologists and medical scientists such as physiologists and pathologists.

Pneumological Aspects of Gastroesophageal Reflux

 Gastroenterology/Hepatology  Comments Off on Pneumological Aspects of Gastroesophageal Reflux
Jan 212019
 

Gastroesophageal reflux (GER) refers to symptoms and events that result from abnormal regurgitation of gastric contents into the esophagus. GER is a common clinical problem that affects large segments of the general population. The spectrum of problems associated with GER is now known to also involve extra-esophageal sites. Respiratory diseases, in particular bronchial asthma, can be exacerbated by multiple triggers, including GER. The relationship between the occurrence of gastroesophageal disorders and changes in respiratory function has been known for over a century, but the mechanism by which intraesophageal acid regurgitation can produce respiratory symptoms is still debated. The reasons for these concurrent pathological events are also not fully understood. Determining, for instance, whether reflux itself initiates or exacerbates asthma, or whether asthma or its treatment primarily causes GER is a matter of current investigation.
