Diseases of the Liver and Biliary System continues to be the pre-eminent textbook of choice for trainee as well as practising gastroenterologists who want a clear and lucid description of the very latest issues in this growing discipline. Every chapter has been updated with the most recent advances in the study and control of hepatitis, in its various forms. Technical and therapeutic advances have appeared in all areas of hepatology, in particular portal hypertension, liver tumours, genetic diseases and imaging, both diagnostic and therapeutic. All are brought up-to-date in the very readable style characteristic of this standard text.Since this is the fastest moving area within hepatology at the moment, the clearer demarcation of each virus will be much appreciated by the reader. There will also be updated sections on cholestasis, fulminant hepatitis and ascites.
