Endoscopic Follow-up of Digestive Anastomosis
Owing to the alterations in visceral anatomy, many endoscopists, and especially trainees, experience difficulties when performing endoscopic surveys or procedures in patients who have previously undergone surgery to the digestive tract. In this richly illustrated book, an expert in the field provides a detailed overview of endoscopic follow-up of gastrointestinal (esophageal, gastric, and colorectal) anastomosis. Both normal appearances and pathological conditions involving complications are fully covered. The methodology, timing, protocols, and role of diagnostic endoscopy are first discussed. Endoscopic treatments for the resolution of different clinical problems related to recurrences, stenoses, dehiscences, and fistulas are then evaluated step by step with the aid of high-quality images. Regardless of level of experience, endoscopists and gastroenterologists will find Endoscopic Follow-up of Digestive Anastomosis to be an invaluable source of information and aid to treatment in this important area, which too often receives insufficiently detailed attention. After earning his medical school degree, Professor Giuseppe Galloro earned his post-graduation specialization in general surgery, both with honors. Once his post-graduate training as jr. doctor in General Surgery Department (prof. F. Mazzeo, University 'Federico II', Naples) was over, he was appointed as assistant and then resident fellow at the same department. He later went on becoming a consultant in the Digestive Surgical Endoscopy Unit and Researcher in General Surgery (prof. C. Catanzano, of University 'Federico II', Naples). His excellent work brought on his nomination in 2004 as professor of General Surgery at the University 'Federico II', Naples and his becoming Head of the Section of Diagnostic and Therapeutic Endoscopy of Non Neoplastic Diseases of the Digestive System, Biliary Tract and Pancreas, at the same University Hospital. He has been teaching in many graduate and post-graduate courses in Medicine and Surgery, Digestive Surgery and Surgical Endoscopy. His main research and clinical practice focus is currently new techniques and methodologies in diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy of early neoplasms and pre neoplastic diseases, computing applications and new materials applied to endoscopy, endoscopic management of obesity. He has authored various volumes of congress proceedings, monographs, journal articles and has been referee at more than hundred national and international congresses.
