This work brings together more than 50 leading figures in the basic and clinical enteric sciences to conduct a review of the epidemiology, anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, and clinical features of colorectal diseases. The editors and contributors balance coverage of the expanding base of enteric science, the pathophysiologic mechanisms underlying colonic disease, and specific colorectal diseases. By integrating key scientific principles with clinical observations, these specialists establish a rational basis for the differential diagnosis and treatment of infectious, inflammatory, neoplastic, and functional diseases and disorders of the large intestine. The first part of the book examines the normal anatomy and physiology and structural and functional abnormalities of the large intestine. The second part assesses the clinical utility of all available diagnostic studies and addresses epidemiologic and etiologic issues such as screening guidelines for colorectal disease and the role of diet and fibre. The third part critically evaluates current approaches to the diagnosis and medical and surgical treatment of all major diseases seen in practice.
