The premier clinical reference in hepatology is now in its thoroughly revised, updated Ninth Edition. More than 100 eminent contributors provide complete, current, clinically focused information on liver diseases and discuss the diagnostic tests and medical and surgical treatment options available. The Ninth Edition includes new chapters on approach to the patient with liver disease, extrahepatic manifestations of viral hepatitis, transplantation in viral hepatitis, and approach to therapy in liver disease. Imaging is now covered in a separate section. New clinical algorithms and drawings have been created to amplify the text and a two-color design gives the Ninth Edition of this classic a distinctive new look.
