Summary Within the last 10 years, revolutionary techniques in molecular biology, genetics, and animal models have revealed dramatic new insights into pancreatic disease and significantly improved our ability to diagnose and treat these disorders. In Pancreatitis and Its Complications, world-renowned experts and opinion-makers comprehensively review the clinical challenges of managing both acute and chronic pancreatitis and explain the basic science that underlies these management strategies. The authors provide up-to-date discussions of the pathophysiology, epidemiology, diagnostic strategies, treatment, and complications of the diseases. Authoritative and up-to-date, Pancreatitis and Its Complications offers busy clinicians not only a thorough account of the biological and clinical background of pancreatitis, but also a highly practical guide to the day-to-day treatment of patients suffering from this complex disease
