17.68 MB PDF
Similar to the first, the second edition of the American Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons’ (ASCRS) Manual is abstracted from and is a companion to the second edition of the ASCRS Textbook of Colon and Rectal Surgery , Beck DE, Wexner SD, Roberts PL, Saclarides TJ, Senagore AJ, Stamos MJ eds. New York: Springer; 2011. It is yet another resource representing ASCRSs ongoing major commitment to education. The purpose of the second edition of the ASCRS Manual of Colon and Rectal Surgery is to provide a “user-friendly,” pocket resource for the busy medical student, resident, private clinician, nurse practitioner, physician’s assistant, and others caring for patients with colorectal surgical diseases.
The second edition of the ASCRS Manual is intended to provide succinct, clinically relevant information for daily patient care and to stimulate the reader to seek more extensive information in the ASCRS Textbook. Each chapter in the manual has been abstracted, edited, and reviewed by the textbook authors and manual editors. Many diagrams, figures, and algorithms from the textbook have been retained inasmuch as they have been found to be helpful in daily patient care. Moreover, other textual content has been purposely excluded from the manual including discussions of research trials, step-by-step technical descriptions of operations, operative techniques, and various figures, x-rays, and patient photos which did not transcribe well to the manual format. The manual will also serve as a bridge to create future electronic links between our journal ( Diseases of the Colon and Rectum ), the ASCRS Textbook, and the ASCRS electronic efforts such as CREST.
Readers of the second edition of the ASCRS Manual are strongly encouraged to consult the second edition of the ASCRS Textbook for in-depth discussions, clarification of content, and appropriate citing of references. It is hoped that the reader will find the manual to be a practical and clinically relevant resource for the daily care of colorectal surgical patients.
