Intestinal failure is a challenging, emerging field that has been the subject of much research and debate in recent years and has only recently become widely accepted as a distinct clinical syndrome. This comprehensive book provides an in-depth review of scientific theory and clinical practice relating to intestinal failure with specific emphasis on assessment and management as part of a multidisciplinary team. Compiled by an internationally recognised editorial team, the book provides a practical how-to guide to the management of adult and pediatric patients with intestinal failure, focusing on quality-of-life issues that are at the heart of patient care. * World experts from centers of excellence share their clinical experience and expertise, offering the first ever authoritative resource on intestinal failure * All aspects of patient management are covered, from diagnosis and medical and surgical management (including transplantation) to nutritional consideration and psychosocial aspects of care * Numerous illustrations, flow diagrams and summary boxes complement the text and emphasize important concepts, providing an accessible approach to this complex field This landmark book is essential reading for any gastroenterologists, surgeons, transplant teams or clinical nutritionists involved in the care of patients with intestinal failure.
