Irritable Bowel Syndrome: A clinican's guide provides a very up-to-date overview of this controversial disease, focusing in particular on diagnosis, management and treatment, but also covering epidemiology and new pathophysiologic advances. Tailored to the needs of today's practicing clinician, the book clearly explains the role of diet in treatment of IBS, the use of antidepressants, bulking agents and antispasmodics, as well as including a thorough review of serotinergic drugs and emerging treatments and pharmacotherapies. The management of the disease from the primary care perspective, and the relationship between the doctor and the patient in the treatment of the disease, are also comprehensively covered. There is an evaluation for the evidence for procedures in all chapters.

The book is edited and written by a team of internationally renowned contributors from around the globe, who represent some of the leading names in IBS treatment and research. The book is beautifully illustrated throughout with full color artworks, tables and graphs, especially created for this title, which help understanding and clarify difficult concepts. Summary boxes appear throughout the text, highlighting key information.

Irritable Bowel Syndrome will be an invaluable resource to all gastroenterologists, and will be an indispensable guide to internists, family care and general practitioners.
