Yamada’s Textbook of Gastroenterology 2-Volume Set 6th Edition PDF
319.29 MB PDF
It has been nearly 25 years since the first edition of the Textbook of Gastroenterology was published. The textbook, conceived by its first editor-in-chief Dr. Tadataka Yamada, set out to make available a reference which was comprehensive in its coverage of the clinical discipline of gastroenterology in the context of the scientific foundations of current practices. The approach was reflective of the premise that a thorough grounding in the scientific basis of disease is the most dependable foundation for an understanding that would enable the astute clinician to care for patients.
The first edition, edited by a team including Tadataka Yamada, David H. Alpers, Chung Owyang, Don W. Powell, and Fred E. Silverstein, established the textbook as authoritative. That benchmark has since been sustained through four subsequent editions even as the outstanding group of editors evolved. With this sixth edition, the baton has been passed, and a new group of editors has taken on the responsibility of stewardship of that legacy. In assuming our responsibilities, my colleagues and I aimed to make the new edition even more useful to our intended readers: students, specialty and subspecialty trainees, practicing clinicians and academicians. We took as basic premise that the textbook would continue to be comprehensive, incorporating all of the significant advances made since the last edition. This new edition also continues to take a global view of gastroenterology – encompassing disorders of the gastrointestinal tract which may be common and similar through most if not all regions of the world as well as those that are either specific to a given geography or population or in whom the manifestations and management differ by geography or population. In addition, the textbook provides an in depth consideration of ancillary fields and modalities that are a critical to the modern practice of gastroenterology including endoscopy, radiologic imaging, histology and pathology.
The editors judged that this edition would benefit from a number of changes beyond the overall refreshment of the content to reflect most current understanding and management approaches in clinical care. Readers will find a new section, “Approach to the patient with . . . ,” in which experts provide a framework for approaching the evaluation and management of patients presenting with the most common symptoms and signs that are the purview of the gastroenterologist, incorporating into the textbook material that had previously been found only in a separate volume. The editors judged it would be most useful to have these easily available to readers as it reflects a point of reference that is a common if not daily aspect of clinical practice.
