Designed to present "some opinions and supposed facts . . . for reference purposes," Practical Points in Gastroenterology clearly reflects the author's views. Many of these have been at variance with those of other gastroenterologists. Some, like the vigorous diagnostic approach to upper gastrointestinal hemorrhage, have gained more general acceptance with time. Others, however, remain almost unique to Dr. Palmer. Few would agree with the recommendations of no steroid treatment for ulcerative colitis, no medication or dietary restriction for patients with esophagitis and hiatus hernia, and no medication or restrictions in the treatment of peptic ulcer.
