Mayo Clinic Illustrated Textbook of Neurogastroenterology Excerpt :

Mayo Clinic Illustrated Textbook of Neurogastroenterology is the first illustrated approach to the study of an important subdiscipline of gastroenterology. Using relatively limited text content and preferentially applying the physiologic, clinical, and therapeutic principles through illustrations and case studies of disorders of gastrointestinal motility and function, Dr. Michael Camilleri relied on more than 3 decades of clinical experience at Mayo Clinic to craft a text that is unique among textbooks dealing with gastrointestinal motility disorders. Forty percent of patients evaluated in clinical gastroenterologic practice have gastrointestinal motility and functional disorders. Thus, this illustrated textbook is a valuable resource for gastroenterologists in training and practice, internal medicine physicians, and neurologists with an interest in autonomic nervous system disorders that frequently manifest with gastrointestinal symptoms. The textbook addresses chronic nausea or vomiting and neurologic diseases; the diagnosis and management of diverse disorders, including gastroparesis, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, and diarrhea; less common congenital and genetic disorders; and the role of pharmacogenomics in these diseases. The breadth of this textbook and its many illustrations combine to make it a unique and required study guide.

Color Atlas of High Resolution Manometry Excerpt :

While reflux disease, achalasia, esophageal spasm, gastroparesis and IBS include some of the most common disorders in all disease categories, the understanding of their pathophysiology has remained elusive. The field of clinical gastrointestinal motility has for decades relied on the measurement of intestinal movements for diagnosis and management of these difficult and enigmatic disorders of gut function. Although computers have increased the speed with which we can measure the movements of the gut, the devices to measure this movement have not changed in over 20 years. In the last 2 years, a new technologic breakthrough has taken place in the measurement of intestinal movement. The technology is called high resolution manometry. Rather than the old 4 and 8 channels systems of measuring pressure, high resolution employs 36 closely spaced solid state pressure transducers. By using this technology, the resolution of gut motor activity is incredible. This allows for better ways of viewing motility using color as pressure. This technology makes for beautiful images of gut motility that we have never seen before. We have made diagnoses that would never have been appreciated with the old technology. High resolution manometry is taking over conventional manometry worldwide and represents a dramatic leap in a long time stagnant area.

Functional Dyspepsia Excerpt :

The research and outcomes presented in this book gather evidence concerning both the pathogenesis and treatment of functional dyspepsia. It provides the latest information on this common non-organic disease, indicating its characteristic pathogenesis based on the brain-gut interaction and micro-environment and evidence gleaned from clinical treatment. Since the pathogenesis is associated with psychology, neurology, endocrinology and bacteriology in addition to gastroenterological physiology, it is often intractable and finding a suitable treatment rationale is challenging. Furthermore, the pathogenesis varies around the world and the efficacy of treatment using standard drugs varies among different populations worldwide; accordingly, this book highlights evidence gained in clinical trials in Japan. Functional Dyspepsia is a milestone produced by respected experts. Addressing unique topics and new findings of treatment including challenging and/or future rationales, it offers an invaluable resource for general clinicians, gastroenterologists, and basic researchers alike.

Handbook of Gastrointestinal Motility and Functional Disorders Excerpt :

Handbook of Gastrointestinal Motility and Functional Disorders is a user-friendly handbook that reviews the latest and most up-to-date information on the evaluation of symptoms and diagnostic tests of GI motility and functional GI disorders and a practical approach on how to treat these disorders. Each chapter is written by an international expert in the field who was carefully chosen for his or her renowned scientific and clinical expertise. The book brings together the essence of science and art in the practice of neurogastroenterology and GI motility. The chapters are enriched with algorithms, tables, and figures to enhance learning and readability. Each chapter follows a specific outline; chapters on symptoms follow the format of definition, pathophysiology, and evaluation of the symptoms, whereas the chapters on specific disorders follow the format of definition, diagnosis, and treatment. This allows for quick reading of the various chapters and to gain up-to-date knowledge of the topic. Each chapter also includes extensive color pictures and illustrations of each test involved and descriptions of how to perform and interpret the motility tests that are incorporated into patient care decisions. Handbook of Gastrointestinal Motility and Functional Disorders by Drs. Satish S. C. Rao, Henry P. Parkman, and Richard W. McCallum will be useful for practicing physicians, junior academicians, GI fellows, young faculty, motility laboratory personnel, surgeons, internists, physician assistants, family practitioners, and nurse practitioners who all encounter the common problems of dysphagia, heartburn, nausea, vomiting, abdominal pain, irritable bowel syndrome, constipation, and fecal incontinence in their daily practice. The update on management and therapy completes the Handbook of Gastrointestinal Motility and Functional Disorders and explains how to integrate this diagnostic information into decision making, and how to translate this to day-to-day patient care.
