Summary expansion
Clinical Dilemmas in Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease offers hepatologists practical, up-to-date and expert guidance on the most topical dilemmas, difficulties and areas of controversy/difficulty surrounding this ever-increasing area of liver disease they face in daily practice. Roger Williams and Simon Taylor-Robinson, two of Europe's leading hepatologists, have recruited leading figures from across the world to assist them, resulting in a truly international approach. Each chapter covers a specific area of difficulty, containing clear learning points and providing evidence-basedexpert guidance on the latest hot topics in clinical management such as: Is NAFLD different in absence of Metabolic Syndrome? Are the pros outweighed by the cons of obtaining a liver biopsy? Is progression to cirrhosis more likely in children with NAFLD? What are the dangers as well as the true benefits of bariatric surgery? How is it best to use antifibrotic agents in clinical practice? Clinical Dilemmas in Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease provides the answers to the questions and challenges that clinicians face every day in this area. It is essential reading for hepatologists of all levels and researchers in hepatology, as well asall thoseinvolved in the care of patients with NAFLD, including gastroenterologists, pathologistsand specialist hepatology nurses
