This extensively revised second edition of this essential work provides a comprehensive overview of Gastroesophageal Reflux (GER) in children. It contains detailed insight into the epidemiology and pathophysiology of the condition. Relevant diagnostic methods and treatment techniques are also covered. Heavily revised chapters discuss issues associated with GER in special patient populations and current approaches to GER diagnosis and management. New chapters cover relevant aspects of the microbiome, how nutrition can be key to successful treatment and the adverse effects of the latest therapeutic drugs presently available. Colic in infants, and differential diagnoses in eosinophilic esophagitis are also described.

The first part of the book is dedicated to introducing the condition, discussing epidemiology, symptoms and diagnosis. This is followed by addressing issues of the condition encountered in special patient populations such as in preterm infants, apnea, neulorogic patients and cystic fibrosis, among others. The final part of the book is dedicated to therapeutic approaches from medication to surgery and alternative approaches such as complementary medicine and hypnotherapy. The approaches and challenges in endoscopy are also detailed.

Gastroesophageal Reflux in Children, Second Edition is edited by a leading world expert in the topic and written by a global team of authors from a range of associated disciplines, making the work a critical resource for pediatricians, gastroenterologists to pulmonologists, otolaryngologists and neurologists.
