Anus Surgical Treatment and Pathology 1st Edition PDF
9.21 MB PDF
The reader might wonder why another textbook on the anus is needed. There are three main reasons. First anal disease is exceedingly common in all parts of the world. Secondly treatment is effective in most cases, but when surgery is performed badly the patient can be disastrously and often irreversibly worse. Thirdly new developments in the understanding and treatment make proctology a dynamic field for research and its application to management.
The book is not on colon and rectal surgery but rather on proctology in which anal pathology is set within the context of wider disease where relevant. “ Anus ” is edited by two internationally known and experienced surgeons who have themselves contributed to knowledge in the field through research, publications and teaching. They have brought together authors from all over the world, who are recognized practitioners in the field. The reader is given an accurate account of the normal structure and function of the anus including clinical and radiological anatomy and physiology. The importance of histopathology is dealt with in a chapter dedicated to diagnosis and the subsequent chapters then follow from congenital anomalies to neoplasia, prolapse, incontinence, haemorrhoids, fissure and anorectal sepsis. There is a section on dermatological conditions and sexually transmitted disease with the book ending with an account of plastic procedures around the anus.
Every attempt has been made to incorporate new information regarding etiology, diagnosis and treatment to give the reader an up-to-date account of the subject. The use of Tables and Boxes to present data makes the book easy to read. Many of the chapters contain high quality photographs to illustrate diseases particularly those due to dermatological and sexual transmission. The chapters on radiological pathological anatomy contain excellent illustrations which are very useful since they summarise the various pathological forms of anorectal sepsis and prolapse, enabling the reader to learn the radiological counterpart of clinical examination . Each chapter contains a useful bibliography which will in itself be a valuable resource enabling the reader to gain access to the literature including classic publications and recent developments.
The book will be valuable for consultant practitioners in proctology, but it will also help colorectal surgeons, gastroenterologists, trainees, specialist nurses and students who are interested in increasing their knowledge. Proctology is in many ways still a largely clinical speciality and the theme throughout the book implicitly recognizes this while at the same time it demonstrates where investigations are either essential or likely to help clinical decision taking. It is an authoritative, informed and up-to-date contribution to an important area of disease.
