These books are therefore in no way the proceedings of a congress: each, in fact, is a sequence of structured scientific articles, with illustrations, tables and complete bibliographical references focused on one single question, thus offering the reader an exceptional synthesis of facts, ideas and concepts presented by many of the world's greatest experts.
Each volume is made up of approximately 400 to 1600 pages, and a kind of an evolutionary encyclopedia, entitled “OESO KNOWLEDGE INTERACTIVE INFORMATION SYSTEM” is thus progressively composed, which every three or two years covered a comprehensive chapter in an area of esophagology.
Whatever their respective field of interest, readers thus have at their disposal an exceptional source of references: opening the book at random, to any page, they find at once the detail they are looking for, the professional opinion they need, or the development of a question they have perhaps not yet asked themselves.
