There have been dramatic changes since endoscopic ultrasound (EUS) was first introduced 30 years ago. Advances in technology have meant that as well as being used in the diagnosis of gastrointestinal disorders, EUS is now an accepted therapeutic modality. This second edition covers these exciting changes with new chapters on the emerging field of therapeutic EUS.
The book provides a technical how-to approach to learning this advanced endoscopic procedure. The authors guide you, step-by-step, through the fundamentals of EUS with instructions on:
- the instruments involved
- sedation procedures
- how EUS should be performed
Each chapter discusses a specific aspect of EUS as it relates to a particular gastrointestinal disorder or organ system. Drawing on the vast experience of the authors, this definitive volume contains clear and practical guidance on the state of the art in EUS practice today.
