Abstract

ABSTRACT: This monograph provides an overview of pathophysiology and screening, followed by sections on diagnosis and management of upper gastrointestinal, biliary, and pancreatic disorders. The most common upper gastrointestinal disorder is GERD, which affects women of all ages and creates a treatment challenge in pregnant women. Gallstone disease is the most common biliary disorder. A case-based format is used to review management of gallstone disease in pregnancy, as well as chronic pancreatitis in pregnancy. Some of these disorders can be treated by obstetrician-gynecologists; however, many require additional testing and treatment in consultation with a gastroenterologist.
