Review

'The book is a refreshing blend of traditional and modern concepts with the natural history, approach and management being discussed in the light of current advances in the understanding of pathophysiology, molecular basis of disease as well as modern technology.
...
Overall, this is an easy to read and refreshing treatise which comprehensively fills the gaps in knowledge of not only trainee but also practicing paediatricians and paediatric hepatologists.'

Radha K. Dhiman (Indian Journal of Medical Research Vol. 142, No. 1, 2015)
A broad range of medical and surgical details of pediatric liver disease and liver transplantation
Great progress in molecular biology, therapeutics, imaging as well as surgery have vastly improved the understanding and treatment of childhood liver disorders. In particular, surgical advancements in liver transplantation currently allow for a lower age or weight limit for recipients. Furthermore, the majority of children with liver disease or with liver transplantation today survive well into adulthood.
In this book, world experts in the now established subspecialty of pediatric hepatology provide a comprehensive summary of the latest advances in pathophysiology, molecular diagnostics and treatment strategies. Day-to-day management of liver transplant recipients as well as psychosocial aspects and complications during the challenging transition phase to adulthood are discussed in detail.
This up-to-date overview will be an invaluable tool for trainees in pediatric gastroenterology, a ready reference for busy clinicians and nurses or allied health professionals involved in the care of children with liver disease and after liver transplantation.
