Abundantly illustrated atlas describing the state-of-the-art techniques for key procedures of the upper abdomen.
Atlas of Upper Gastrointestinal and Hepato-Pancreato-Biliary Surgery covers in detail the technical aspects of all important procedures of the upper abdomen (esophagus, duodenum, stomach, liver, biliary system, pancreas, portal hypertension and spleen) including general, oncologic and transplantation surgery. Each chapter has been written by an expert renowned in his or her field and been reviewed by a second expert. All of the approximately 900 illustrations have been drawn by the same team of three artists of notable experience.
