About the book

Pancreatitis is the inflammation in the pancreas and it is a common digestive system disease. Until relatively recently, pancreatic diseases have been extremely difficult to study and treat, and many problems of pancreatitis have not been clarified. The correct diagnosis of chronic pancreatitis in early stage is difficult and end-stage chronic pancreatitis or acute pancreatitis with extensive necrosis of the gland was difficult to treat. Within the past decade, revolutionary techniques in molecular biology and minimally invasive have begun to give us dramatic new clinical tools for diagnosing and treating pancreatic disease.

The book is expected to provide reviews on the anatomy and physiology of pancreas, as well as the comprehensive updates on the acute and chronic pancreatitis, and minimally invasive treatment in pancreatitis. It is hoped that this book will provide evidence for clinicians to make clinical decisions and provide scientists with a comprehensive overview of the current developments in this critically important area.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Dajana Pemac

As an Author Service Manager my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review, to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
