Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description:
Are you looking for concise, practical answers to questions that are often left unanswered by traditional IBD references? Are you seeking brief, evidence-based advice for complicated cases or complications? Curbside Consultation in IBD: 49 Clinical Questions provides quick and direct answers to the thorny questions commonly posed during a “curbside consultation” between colleagues.

Dr. David Rubin, Dr. Sonia Friedman and Dr. Francis A. Farraye have designed this unique reference, which offers expert advice, preferences, and opinions on tough clinical questions commonly associated with IBD. The unique Q&A format provides quick access to current information related to IBD with the simplicity of a conversation between two colleagues. Numerous images, diagrams, and references are included to enhance the text and to illustrate IBD.

Curbside Consultation in IBD: 49 Clinical Questions provides information that high-volume clinicians will appreciate, and yet is basic enough for residents.

Gastroenterologists, fellows and residents in training, surgical attendings, and surgical residents will benefit from the user-friendly and casual format and the expert advice contained within.

Some of the questions that are answered:

• Which patients might be better for a “top down” approach (using anti-TNF therapy before steroids or proven failure of oral thiopurines)? What clinical behavior or serological markers might you use to identify these patients?
• When is it appropriate to switch to another biologic therapy?
• Should I be using chromoendoscopy in my surveillance colonoscopy in IBD? How and which agent? Would narrow band imaging be an alternative for this?
• Can we follow flat low-grade dysplasia? Is any dysplasia really flat or just a spectrum of depth and size?
• If women continue infliximab therapy during pregnancy, what are the implications for the baby? What should we be telling our patients about vaccinations?
