Summary In the past decade, extraordinary developments in diagnostic and therapeutic radiology and endoscopy have been coupled with major advances in surgical techniques and basic sciences. The management of pancreatic disorders used to be handled predominantly by surgeons, however there is now a considerable and vital input by medical gastroenterologists, endoscopists, pathologists and oncologists (medical, surgical and radiation). This is resulting in a multidisciplinary team approach. The most encyclopedic book on the pancreas: covering in detail the anatomy, physiology, pathology, pathophysiology, diagnosis and treatment of all known pancreatic disorders. The Editor and author team is of international repute and presents global best-practice. The line drawings, radiographs and colour illustrations provide a step-by-step approach to endoscopic and surgical procedures
