About this book

Both informative and easy to read Transanal stapling techniques for anorectal prolapse provides a comprehensive review of the current knowledge regarding the modern treatment of anorectal prolapse, with emphasis on stapled haemorrhoidopexy for prolapsing haemorrhoids, and the STARR procedure for obstructed defaecation syndrome.

The first transanal stapling technique for the treatment of anorectal prolapse was presented in abstract form in 1998 by Dr A Longo. This described a novel technique for the surgical correction of prolapsing hemorrhoids. The technique has subsequently enjoyed tremendous success due to its benefits in reducing postoperative pain, shortening hospital stay, and achieving an earlier return to normal activities. It is this success that led to the development of the stapled transanal rectal resection (STARR) procedure.

The book provides practical guidance in the application of the techniques with criteria for patient selection, tips and tricks for obtaining the best outcomes, and how to avoid and deal with potential complications. The views of the authors are supported by an overview of the evidence base as documented in the medical literature. A further section deals with unresolved issues of controversy and puts forward areas for ongoing research and development.

Transanal stapling techniques for anorectal prolapse is aimed at higher surgical trainees who are learning for the first time the complexities of proctological practice, as well as established general surgeons and coloproctologists who encounter the conditions on a frequent basis. The complexities of the pelvic floor are increasingly recognised as demanding a combined approach with gynecologists and urologists, and the book will also appeal to practitioners in these specialities.

Reviews

From the reviews:

"This is an excellent description of the historical background and a comparison of two similar techniques for two different diagnoses, internal hemorrhoids and obstructive defecation … . the audience is … colorectal surgeons and surgeons who do a larger amount of anorectal or pelvic floor work. … It is very clear and concise and the diagrams/photos are particularly good. … a great addition to the subspecialist’s library and will probably become a classic since it covers the material so precisely and completely." (Shauna Lorenzo-Rivero, Doody’s Review Service, April, 2009)
