Abstract
With a focus on practical patient related issues, Autoimmune Hepatitis: A Guide for Practicing Clinicians serves as a useful practical, and much needed, resource for all those physicians presented with managing patients diagnosed with autoimmune hepatitis, both acutely and over the long term. It provides a basis for clinicians to understand the etiology of the disease, as well as special circumstances where management dilemmas often arise. Emphasis is given to providing management advice of immediate use to clinicians, something not presently offered by other larger general texts. The chapters are written by those with an expertise and training in this field and include the most up to date information. This book is of great value to Gastroenterologists, Hepatologists, and Internists at all levels who see patients presenting with autoimmune hepatitis.

Abstract
To date, diet programs and medical therapies for the treatment of obesity have had limited success. Bariatric surgery, however, provides a means of effective weight loss for many of those with morbid obesity. Most of these weight loss procedures are performed with a variety of techniques that continue to evolve. Each technique is associated with unique challenges and complications and it is important for the clinician to be knowledgeable about the endoscopic management of these patients. Additionally, as endoscopic technology evolves it may offer more than just the diagnosis and treatment of complications. Endoscopic therapy may soon allow less invasive bariatric revision procedures as well as a variety of primary obesity therapies for various patient populations. Bariatric Endoscopy reviews the management of obesity, normal post-surgical anatomy, endoscopic and medical management of post-surgical complications, and future endoscopic therapies for obesity management. Organized into five sections, the volume covers an obesity overview, traditional therapy, endoscopy and the bariatric patient, medical management of post-surgical complications, and the future role of endoscopy in obesity management. Detailed illustrations are also provided for surgical procedures, complications and obesity management chapters. Authored by authorities in the field, Bariatric Endoscopy is an indispensible tool for the gastroenterologist or surgical endoscopist as they care for patients with complicated bariatric issues.

Abstract
The expanded second edition of this important work provides an up-to-date and comprehensive overview of Behçet syndrome. New and updated chapters focus on recent advances in the areas of pathogenesis, the microbiome, genetics and epigenetics, clustering of symptoms, disease assessment and new treatment options. The book examines how these developments have changed the way physicians approach diagnosis, treatment, and management of Behçet patients. It also analyzes the wide variety of clinical manifestations of the disease including mucocutaneous lesions, intraocular inflammation, central nervous system involvement, deep vein thrombosis and other forms of major vascular disease. Building on the success of its predecessor, the Second Edition of Behçet Syndrome is an invaluable resource for physicians, residents, fellows, and graduate students in rheumatology, dermatology, ophthalmology, neurology, gastroenterology, and internal medicine.

Abstract
Bronchial Asthma: A Guide for Practical Understanding and Treatment, Sixth Edition, is a fully updated version of a widely respected classic on the diagnosis and management of asthma. Discussing the disorder in all relevant patient groups, including a variety of patient subpopulations, this invaluable title continues to emphasize the definition, medications, and practical use of asthma treatment plans. As in previous editions, the book also continues to define and focus on the special clinical problems of the pregnant patient, the patient undergoing emergency treatment, as well as the common day issues of exercise, athletics, recreational drug use and especially self care. Importantly, this comprehensive reference also discusses the common side effects found in the full range of medications used for asthma treatment. Replete with a wide range of tables and charts to again make the book practical and user-friendly, Bronchial Asthma: A Guide for Practical Understanding and Treatment, Sixth Edition, continues its position as a leading text in the field.
