Colorectal Surgery is an essential revision tool for general surgical trainees preparing for the FRCS examination, and in particular those declaring colorectal surgery as an area of special interest. It provides easy access to relevant, up-to-date information in a portable format which can be used at work or for study. All topics are covered in depth with reference given to important papers, guidelines and meta-analyses. There are sections on related specialties and basic applied anatomy, while further chapters address the presentation of colorectal disease in the outpatient clinic, a review of colorectal assessment tools, and detailed, practical information regarding the management of benign and malignant colonic and anorectal conditions.
The handbook has been written specifically to address the curriculum designed and approved by the Association of Coloproctology of Great Britain and Ireland, the Intercollegiate Surgical Curriculum Project and the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgeons. While aimed at senior trainees, Colorectal Surgery will also be of interest to new consultants wishing to update their knowledge of colorectal surgery, junior surgical trainees, specialist nurses dealing with patients with colorectal disease as well as general practitioners and allied healthcare professionals.
Readership: Senior colorectal and general surgical trainees, junior surgical trainees and medical students, general surgical consultants, and surgical nursing staff.
