Hepatology: A Textbook of Liver Disease

Hepatology: A Textbook of Liver Disease This article is only available in the PDF format. Download the PDF to view the article, as well as its associated figures and tables. Abstract This textbook represents the most recent addition to the growing number of books on liver disease. Seventy-six authors have contributed a total of 51 chapters on most aspects of liver physiology, metabolism, and clinical disease. Many of the contributors are recognized experts in their respective fields, and the scope and depth of most chapters reflects this expertise. The editors' stated goal was to emphasize a pathophysiologic approach to the understanding and care of the patient with liver disease, and the admirable balance between the space allotted to basic science and clinical disease reflects this ideal. The first section, dealing with normal hepatic physiology and biochemistry, describes in great detail the current state of knowledge concerning hepatic structure, physiology, and metabolism. The structural-functional relationship in the hepatocyte is lucidly presented, with high-quality electron micrographs. The chapters on various aspects of hepatic metabolism are uniformly well illustrated, with clear diagrams and flow http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Archives of Internal Medicine American Medical Association
