9781556428159: Curbside Consultation of the Liver: 49 Clinical Questions

Are you looking for concise, practical answers to questions that are often left unanswered by traditional liver references? Are you seeking brief, evidence-based advice for complicated cases or complications? Curbside Consultation of the Liver: 49 Clinical Questions provides quick and direct answers to the thorny questions commonly posed during a “curbside consultation” between colleagues.

Dr. Mitchell Shiffman has designed this unique reference, which offers expert advice, preferences, and opinions on tough clinical questions commonly associated with the liver. The unique Q&A format provides quick access to current information related to the liver with the simplicity of a conversation between two colleagues. Numerous images, diagrams, and references are included to enhance the text and to illustrate the treatment of the liver.

Curbside Consultation of the Liver: 49 Clinical Questions provides information basic enough for residents while also incorporating expert advice that even high-volume clinicians will appreciate. Gastroenterologists, fellows, residents in training, and medical students will benefit from the user-friendly and casual format and the expert advice contained within.

Some of the questions that are answered:
· How often should I follow a patient who had chronic hepatitis C after they achieved a sustained virologic response?
· Should I stop the HIV medications in a patient who has developed an elevation in serum liver transaminases?
· What should I tell my patient who is a carrier for alpha-1-antitrypsin deficiency?
· Which patients with fatty liver disease on an ultrasound examination require a liver biopsy?
· Which patients with chronic liver disease should I screen for hepatocellular carcinoma?
· How much ascites is safe to remove at any time?

About the Author:

Mitchell L. Shiffman, MD received his MD degree from the State University of New York, Upstate Medical Center in Syracuse, NY. He then completed internship and residency training in Internal Medicine at the Medical College of Virginia (now the Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center) in Richmond, VA. He remained at this institution for fellowship training in Gastroenterology and Hepatology, which included two years of research training funded by a National Institutes of Health training grant. After completing his training, Dr. Shiffman joined the faculty of the Virginia Commonwealth University as an Assistant Professor of Medicine and has remained at this institution throughout his academic career. He is currently a Professor of Medicine, and has been the Chief of the Hepatology Section and Medical Director of the Liver Transplant Program at the VCU Medical Center for over a decade. Dr. Shiffman has authored or coauthored over 200 original articles, editorials, reviews, and/or book chapters. His clinical research has focused on improving our understanding and developing better treatments for viral hepatitis B and C. He is a member of the Board of Trustees of the American College of Gastroenterology, and has served on numerous NIH grant review committees and is a member of the Editorial Boards of Liver Transplantation and Liver International.

Review:

"It is well written and easy to read. The innovative format that the book applies in which each chapter is entitled by a relevant question, makes it very friendly to the reader and increases its potential to be a quick reference book or companion book for the clinical hepatologist. It is up-to-date, and the use of simple diagrams and tables increase the value of this book. It is a must read for the gastroenterology/hepatology fellow, for the junior Hepatology attending and even for senior hepatologists who would like a quick review of current literature. As the title indicated, it answers typical curbside questions, that often require an extensive search of the literature and deep insight into the hepatology field."  

— Mayra J. Sanchez, MD, Gastroenterology and Hepatology Fellow, Section of Digestive Diseases, Yale University School of Medicine, New Haven, CT, Journal of Clinical Gastroenterology



 "Each question is answered efficiently with appropriate charts and figures. The bridge between medical literature and actual medical practice is a unique aspect to this text. The authors do a great job of separating evidence-based guidelines from expert opinion or personal practice. The overall quality of this text was excellent. Curbside Consultation of the Liver will be a welcome companion for hepatology textbooks and practice guidelines. Physicians, from the resident to the hepatologist, presented with these clinical questions will find this text to be a quick review and adjunct in clinical practice."  

— Geoffrey Fillmore, DO & Mark Jeffries, DO, Scott and White Hospital, Texas A&M Health Science Center, Practical Gastroenterology

 “The questions are common and practical; as such the book does an admirable job of meeting the objectives. The chapters are written by the well regarded hepatology faculty from Virginia Commonwealth University Medical Center as well as gastroenterology fellows from this institution. They impact a solid and practical command of the field and are credible authorities. This is a very useful practical approach to commonly encountered hepatology management questions. The format is enjoyable and the information easy to comprehend. It represents a welcome change from the usual staid textbook fare.”  

— Willem JS de Villiers, MD, PhD, University of Kentucky College of Medicine, Doody Enterprises, Inc.
