From the Back Cover:
The first edition of this book was judged by many to be the best available atlas of upper gastrointestinal and hepato-pancreato-biliary surgery. The second edition builds upon this success by covering all of the significant intervening developments, including both new procedures and adaptations of established techniques.
The atlas opens with an introductory section on the basic principles of operative surgery. All of the important techniques employed in upper gastrointestinal and hepato-pancreato-biliary surgery are then presented in a series of sections devoted to the esophagus, stomach, and duodenum, the liver, the biliary system, portal hypertension, the pancreas, and the spleen. General, oncologic, and transplantation surgical procedures are described step by step with the aid of more than 900 superb illustrations drawn by a team of artists with extensive experience. A further feature, much appreciated by readers of the first edition, is the inclusion of the authors’ personal surgical tricks. The contributors have been carefully selected from across the globe; they have extensive experience in the procedures they describe and most are established educators.
