The 5th edition of this volume provides an authoritative illustrated text of the operative techniques for established surgeons and those advanced in surgical training. With an international list of authors, most of the text has been rewritten and is complemented by numerous new illustrations. Although television-guided laparoscopic-assisted surgery is in its infancy and details of the techniques are expected to change and be developed in the near future, a section on this subject has been included with nearly 50 colour photographs. The chapters are arranged in ten sections, each section having its own introductory overview by an authority in the subject to place it into the general perspective of the book. Some sections are new, some have been expanded and others consolidated. With a new emphasis on the overall management of patients, the indications and contraindications for surgery, tricks of the trade' of individual authors and discussion of technical and clinical judgement, this new edition provides the reader with all the essentials for successful surgery. This book should be of interest to general surgeons and colorectal surgeons, both those established and in training.
