Recent Advances in Coloproctology provides a thorough overview of modern developments in the surgical treatment of disorders of the lower intestine including ulcerative colitis/severe acute colitis, Crohn's disease, carcinomas, haemorrhoids and anal incontinence. Recognizing that the surgeon does not work in isolation, the book also integrates recent progress in imaging techniques for the anal canal and rectum, and highlights medico-legal considerations in separate chapters. Aimed at current practitioners and trainees, Recent Advances in Coloproctology discusses key concepts that will assist general surgeons and colorectal consultants in their management of patients with a broad spectrum of anorectal and colonic disorders. With a problem-oriented slant, this book is essential reading for all those with interest in coloproctology.
