Abstract
This book provides readers with a succinct but comprehensive overview of current concepts relating to intestinal failure, including its treatment, with a particular focus on recent advancements. The opening chapters address basic aspects of intestinal failure, including etiology, clinical pathophysiology, physiology of intestinal adaptation, and intestinal microbiota. The complications of intestinal failure, such as bacterial overgrowth and intestinal failure-associated liver disease, are then discussed. A series of chapters specifically address important strategies in the nutritional, pharmacological, and surgical treatment of intestinal failure as well as the concept of intestinal rehabilitation. Finally, two significant emerging developments are considered: regenerative medicine and distraction enterogenesis. The authors are internationally recognized experts from Europe and North America who are ideally placed to describe current knowledge and progress in the field.

Abstract
This multi-authored book covers most aspects of evaluation of gastrointestinal motility: a field that has been expanding in recent times largely due to advances in diagnostic modalities; coupled with this, new evidences supporting best practices have increased the interest among clinical gastroenterologists, researchers, teachers and trainees in gastrointestinal motility and its disorders. New advances in the field of evaluation of functional bowel diseases and motility disorders, such as high-resolution manometry, 24-h pH impedance monitoring, Bravo capsule pH-metry, barostat, balloon expulsion test, barium and MR defecography, biofeedback, hydrogen breath tests, motility capsule (smartpill) etc. have significantly expanded the scope and outcome of treating these disorders. The chapters have been contributed by a well-conversant group of experts from the global academia, including India, Singapore, Thailand, Korea and Australia, integrating the body of knowledge on evaluation methods with evidence of best practices for the management of motility disorders. A chapter on how to set-up a manometry laboratory provides key information for clinicians and researchers who are planning to start working in this area. With 11 chapters in the book supported with numerous tables, flow charts, schematic diagrams and images, professionals will find it an essential reading.

Abstract
This book describes the causes and clinical management of functional gastrointestinal disorders in a readily understandable way, with the aid of many clear illustrations. The concrete and practical advice provided will be most helpful in the clinical practice of both the general practitioner and the medical specialist. Functional disorders of the gastrointestinal tract, such as gastroesophageal reflux disease, functional dyspepsia, and irritable bowel syndrome, are very common and chronic conditions. Despite the recent publication of many scientific papers on their diagnosis and treatment, much remains unclear, and management is still considered challenging. This practice-oriented book will be an ideal source of reliable up-to-date guidance for all who care for these patients.

Abstract
Neurogastroenterology is devoted to studying "the interface of all aspects of the digestive system with the different branches of the nervous system." Over the past 15 years, advances in this field have greatly improved our understanding in primary functional and motility disorders in children. Neurogastroenterology has also begun to revolutionize our vision of "organic" diseases like inflammatory bowel disease, obesity, and diabetes, as well as microbial-host interactions. Major advances have also been achieved during these years in the knowledge of mechanisms of development of the enteric nervous system at the molecular level, allowing a better understanding of diseases related to developmental anomalies and opening perspectives to new treatments with stem cells. Pediatric Neurogastroenterology: Gastrointestinal Motility and Functional Disorders in Children is dedicated to reporting the most accurate and recent knowledge in the field. Written by the world-renown experts, the book covers the field by providing a comprehensive and up-to-date review and practical guide to pediatric gastrointestinal motility and functional disorders for pediatricians, pediatric gastroenterologists, adult gastroenterologists and all professionals involved in the treatment of children with such disorders.
