Symposium papers on clinical physiology, disease, diagnosis, and treatment. Physiological topics include deglutition, gastric secretion (central and peripheral mechanisms), and gastric emptying. Disorders considered are hiatal hernia, esophagitis, achalasia, gastritis, peptic ulcer, and complications of surgical treatment. Diagnostic methods reviewed include radiography, manometry, endoscopy, chemistry, and cytology. Emphasis in treatment is on nonoperative therapies—diet, drugs, irradiation, and freezing.
Most papers have approximately the same short format, which results in relatively cursory treatment of many topics. Bibliographies follow each chapter; virtually all citations are to papers published in 1964 or earlier. Indexed.
