Detailed data pertaining to novel anastomotic supports as well as the management of complex anastomotic failure will be included
The performance of intestinal anastomoses has gradually evolved from an apprenticeship art to a scientific practice. Basic principles for the safe conduct of an intestinal anastomosis still hold true, however, there is much new literature on the role of anastomotic adjuncts including biological membranes, growth factors and a range of bioprosthetic agents as well as an improved understanding of dysregulation of collagen and inflammatory mediators which may contribute to anastomotic dehiscence and failure.
Intestinal Anastomosis: Basic Science, Construction Techniques and the Management of Anastomotic Failure is a fully illustrated, up-to-date, comprehensive text which brings together all aspects of the basic science and comparative outcomes of intestinal anastomoses as well as expert commentary on the management of anastomotic failure and the care of high-risk cases.
Intestinal Anastomosis: Basic Science, Construction Techniques and the Management of Anastomotic Failure is a valuable teaching aid for gastrointestinal surgeons as well as for surgical trainees engaged in complex elective and emergency gastrointestinal surgery.
