Atlas of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy

Atlas of Gastrointestinal Endoscopy is a magnificent endoscopic photographic collection that begins in the esophagus and goes on to include all areas of the gastrointestinal tract accessible to the endoscopist. Hundreds of brilliantly captured photographic images are supplemented with carefully executed color drawings and explanatory figures to make this work the premier atlas of gastrointestinal endoscopy of the 1980s. A brief but adequate text covers some technical aspects of diagnostic endoscopy and supplements the photographs in providing the reader with almost all that needs to be known about what may be seen through a gastrointestinal endoscope.

This book is written primarily for the diagnostic endoscopist, with small sections dealing with therapeutic maneuvers such as foreign-body removal, endoscopic retrograde cholangiopancreatography, endoscopic hemostasis, and polypectomy. Designed primarily to convey endoscopic images to the reader, the descriptions of individual therapeutic procedures are truncated but adequate for a work of this nature.

The reader,
