Frontiers in Colorectal Disease presents a compilation of articles from the international conference titled ‘Frontiers in Colorectal Disease’. It discusses the aspects of functional disorders, neoplastic disease and inflammatory bowel disease. It addresses the practical management of a variety of disorders of the colon, rectum, and anus. Some of the topics covered in the book are the basis of functional intestinal symptoms; nervous control of the gut; physiological reactions of the gastrointestinal tract to stress; visceral pain; mechanisms of flatulence and diarrhoea; pathophysiology of constipation; Arbuthnot Lane’s disease; and megacolon in adults. The results of surgical treatment of constipation are fully covered. The anorectal incontinence of electrophysiological tests is discussed in detail. The text describes in depth the risk factors in childbirth causing damage to the pelvic floor innervation. A retrospective study of the results of post-anal repair is presented completely. A chapter is devoted to the gracilis muscle transposition for anal incontinence. Another section focuses on the magnitude of risk for cancer in patients with colorectal adenomas. The book can provide useful information to doctors, surgeons, students, and researchers.
