Item description for The Gastroesophageal Reflux in Infants and Children: Diagnosis, Medical Therapy, Surgical Management by Ciro Esposito...
Gastroesophageal reflux disease is a common condition in children. In most infants the reflux disappears spontaneously after the first year of life; nevertheless, children may be managed with medical therapy and those with refractory disease should be referred to surgery. Guidelines for clinical practice have not yet been established for children. The editors of this book, three leading experts in the surgical treatment of this pathology, have joined gastroenterologists, pediatricians, pediatric surgeons and radiologists to provide a modern overview of this pathology. The multimedia format of this endeavor (book plus DVD) is extremely practical and allows easy reading and viewing. This textbook, the first of its kind, will therefore arouse great scientific interest, since it is relevant to four medical specialties: pediatrics, gastroenterology, radiology and pediatric surgery.
