This short book should prove to be of interest to physicians interested in diseases of the esophagus. Normal anatomy and physiology are discussed, and methods of examination and diagnosis are outlined. Diagnosis and treatment of diseases affecting the esophagus are reviewed, and a brief discussion of tumors is included. There are many references, but the details of newer studies are not given. The book's greatest value lies in its excellent illustrations and the discussions of operative technique.
