This is the second and fully updated edition of the successful volume on intestinal failure in adults and children. The book provides a comprehensive coverage of all aspects of intestinal failure: from acute and chronic intestinal failure management and treatment, to outcomes, consequences and problems of treatment. In addition, 20 new chapters have been added, covering acute and chronic pancreatitis, critical care and abdominal pain among other topics. Each of the chapters contains a section with top tips on the topic, summarizing the essential take-home messages. Highly educational, this book is a must have for gastroenterologists but is of use for all members of a hospital nutrition support team including nurses, dietitians and pharmacists, whom it will serve as a practical guide for management of intestinal failure both in the hospital and in an outpatient setting. Written by a multidisciplinary author team, this book brings this important subject to a wide readership. With extensive referencing the book provides a detailed overview of the topic, discussing the latest research in the subject and how this relates to current clinical practice and potential future treatments.
