Dyspepsia answers the clinical challenge of day-to-day patient management for this common medical disorder. Because we live in an era of managed health care and fiscal concerns, the emphasis is on cost-effective strategies that achieve optimal clinical outcomes. Physicians now have a guide that bridges the gap between the exhaustive medical literature and informed decision making.
Like all titles in the Key Diseases series, Dyspepsia provides the latest essential information organized in an easy-to-use format. Topics include epidemiology, etiology, natural history, motility problems, quality-of-life issues, and alternative therapies. The complexities of gastroesophageal reflux disease and Helicobacter pylori infection are explored. Clinical Vignettes demonstrate how experts approach frequently encountered dilemmas by using hypothetical case histories and by posing treatment questions.
Written by specialists, Dyspepsia thoroughly covers the diagnosis and management issues that are of pressing concern to primary care physicians.
