From the Publisher:  

     An interdisciplinary reference book for the diagnosis and treatment of gallbladder and bile duct diseases

     With recent developments in the management of hepatobiliary diseases including liver transplantation, this new edition aids all members of the team by addressing both the biliary indications for and biliary complications of these procedures.

     It's divided into three sections on anatomy, pathophysiology, and epidemiology; diagnostic and therapeutic approaches including the latest therapeutic modalities; and specific conditions.

     Includes more than 250 illustrations for rapid reference.  Each chapter now has a Q & A section and begins with a list of objectives outlining the chapter's goals.  In addition, a number of new imaging modalities are presented in this new edition.

     It takes an integrated medical, surgical and radiological approach, making this invaluable to all members of the team who deal with complications of liver transplantation and the management of patients.
