About this book

The second edition of Constipation is a comprehensive text on the etiology, evaluation, and management of chronic, intractable constipation. As well as being debilitating, constipation is a complaint with many causes and can also be a symptom of more serious pathological changes.

Innovations include Professor Norman Williams’s Malone Procedure (antegrade continent colonic conduit) as well as the newer pharmacologic treatments such as nitric oxide and botulinum toxin injections. The book is written by an international panel of expert authors. All of the new advances developed, described, and tested since writing the first edition are included. Novel chapters include those on biofeedback, surgery for constipation, sacral nerve stimulation, the use of laparoscopy for rectal prolapse, and treament and understanding of some of the psychological problems of patients affected by this condition.

This book is essential for coloproctologists, colorectal surgeons and general surgeons. In addition, the chapters on irritable bowel syndrome, botulinum toxin and other new pharmacologic approaches will appeal to gastroenterologists.

Reviews

From the reviews of the second edition:

"This compact, but complete, second edition, edited by Drs. Wexner and Duthie, brings an up-to-date approach to the medical and surgical therapy of this often debilitating condition. Excellent sections by authors … provide a complete picture of what is currently known about etiology and medical therapy, as well as advances in diagnostic strategies that direct surgical treatment, when indicated. … This comprehensive, easily read volume is a worthwhile edition to the library of any surgeon who encounters patients afflicted by this difficult entity." (Richard P. Billingham, Diseases of the Colon and Rectum, Vol. 51, 2008)
