Abstract
This is a state-of-the-art book for those looking to advance their colonoscopic techniques beyond simple polypectomy. Chapters introduce methods of removing polyps that were not previously amenable to simple colonoscopic snare polypectomy. These include endoscopic mucosal resection (EMR), endoscopic submucosal dissection (ESD), and combined endoscopic and laparoscopic polypectomy (CELS). Advanced techniques such as intestinal stenting and closure of perforations are extensively covered. There is a detailed description of necessary tools and skills to accomplish these difficult tasks. As many readers will never have seen these complex procedures before, photographs and video clips accompany this text. The authors provide tips, tricks, and describe pitfalls that will help the reader incorporate these new techniques into their practice. Advanced Colonoscopy: Polypectomy and Beyond will be of great value to any surgeon or gastroenterologist currently performing colonoscopy and interested in advanced techniques.

Abstract
The first edition laid out the foundation with laparoscopic and robotic surgery utilizing the Da Vinci SI platform. Since then, many new advances in equipment and surgical techniques are becoming more popular. This second edition expands upon laparoscopic and endoscopic techniques and robotic surgery with the use of the new Da Vinci XI platform. This book bridges the gap between the practicing community of surgeons and the surgical innovators and provides a foundation for all classic and new techniques in minimally invasive colorectal surgery. By enhancing the surgical toolbox, the surgeon is able to progress from the novice to the master. Rather than describing the entire operative procedure by an individual author, this book compares operative steps of various technical difficulties throughout different chapters, thereby allowing the surgeon to tailor surgery to patient and surgeon`s own comfort level and experience. Chapters are written by a myriad of renowned experts in the field and discuss the major advances in advanced laparoscopic and endoscopic, robotic, and transanal minimally invasive surgical techniques. Great emphasis is placed on transanal total mesorectal excision (TaTME), which is dramatically changing the surgical approach to rectal resections. The second edition of Advanced Techniques in Minimally Invasive and Robotic Colorectal Surgery serves as a valuable resource to general surgeons, colon and rectal surgeons, minimally invasive surgeons, as well as residents and fellows.

Abstract
This book provides a valuable resource for surgeons and health care providers who care for patients with colorectal disease at all stages of their careers. In line with previous editions, it aims to build upon the collective experience and expertise from national and international experts in the field, providing a completely revamped, up-to-date tome covering the wide breadth of colorectal disease organized around the “pillars” of colorectal surgery including perioperative care (including endoscopy); anorectal disease; benign disease (including inflammatory bowel disease); malignancy; pelvic floor disorders; and a “miscellaneous” section that covers aspects both inside and beyond the operating room that are pertinent to providers at every level. In addition, each chapter contains several Key Concepts that succinctly depict the major learning objectives for individual sections and are in line with the Core Curriculum for Colon and Rectal Surgery provided by Association of Program Directors in Colon and Rectal Surgery and the key topics used by the American Board of Colon and Rectal Surgery. The ASCRS Manual of Colon and Rectal Surgery 3rd Edition serves as a relevant and practical tool to provide information, recommendations, and ultimately help improve the care and outcome for our patients.

Abstract
This book provides a comprehensive and up-to-date overview of current polypectomy techniques and describes new perspectives in the field. A wide variety of topics are covered, including classification of colon polyps, established polypectomy techniques and related controversies, advanced endoscopic resection, endoscopic submucosal dissection, the use of submucosal injection solutions, management of complications, management of anticoagulant and antiplatelet medications, and post-polypectomy endoscopic surveillance. Information is also provided on a novel risk calculation score for adenoma recurrence after polypectomy, developed by the editors of the book and their colleagues. In acquainting readers with the state of the art in the field, Colon Polypectomy will serve as a valuable reference and practical tool for all who perform the procedure, which is of ever-increasing importance given the recent success of colon cancer screening campaigns in leading to earlier detection of colon polyps.

Abstract
This book, now in a thoroughly revised and extended second edition, clearly explains the nature of colon polyps and their relationship to colorectal cancer. On this basis, it goes on to provide up-to-date guidance on disease prevention and treatment. The book opens by describing the anatomy and histology of the colon and all aspects of the use of colonoscopy, including in the presence of infectious disease and in pregnant patients. The histopathological features of colon polyps and their endoscopic and surgical treatment are then discussed in depth. Risk factors for the development of colorectal cancer are identified, with advice on preventive measures, and detailed clinical information is presented on the treatment options for colorectal cancer, from open surgery, laparoscopic resection, and robotic surgery to neoadjuvant and adjuvant radiotherapy and chemotherapy. In addition, the different potential approaches in patients with liver metastases are fully described. The book will be invaluable for medical specialists and students, and the clear style ensures that it will also be accessible for other interested persons, including patients.

Abstract
This book offers up-to-date coverage of the full range of topics in coloproctology: anatomy, physiology, anal disorders, dermatology, functional disorders, inflammatory bowel disease, endometriosis, appendicitis, benign and malignant tumors, presacral tumors, laparoscopy, endoscopy, perioperative management, intestinal failure, abdominal wall reconstruction, emergencies, and pain syndromes. Each of the chapters on individual disorders provides a comprehensive overview on etiology, incidence, epidemiology, diagnostics, medical and surgical treatment, access, complications, and special considerations. In presenting data, care is always taken to refer to the best available level of evidence. The book forms the latest addition to Springer's European Manual Medicine series and is the second edition of Coloproctology. It will be the first standard recommended textbook of the European Society of Coloproctology. The editors have again assembled a group of experienced authors, each of whom has an international reputation within coloproctology or an allied specialty and a desire to see ever-improving standards in coloproctology throughout Europe. By including contributions from authors across Europe, the book provides a great breadth of knowledge and reflects diversity of clinical practice. The manual provides surgical trainees with a comprehensive and condensed guide to the knowledge required for the European Board of Surgery Qualification (EBSQ) examination. It will also be a valuable aid to the many practicing coloproctologists across Europe and beyond who undertake continuing professional development and a useful source of information for researchers and clinicians in allied disciplines.

Abstract
The topics covered in this book have been specifically chosen to give guidance to surgeons established in practice and those embarking on their careers. Examples include the changing management in the treatment of the catastrophic abdominal wall, perianal Crohn's disease in the biological era, decision making in rectal cancer that responds to radiotherapy, and the assessment of outcomes in colorectal cancer surgery. Recent years have seen the introduction of technical advances with respect to robotics in colorectal surgery and trans-anal total meso-rectal excision, and which are rapidly becoming established in clinical practice. Chapters also cover those aspects of colorectal practice, which are common to all, and provide guidance on management of topics including complications of radiotherapy, management of pouch dysfunction and iatrogenic complications in pelvic cancer surgery.

Abstract
This book provides clear surgical options when the cases are not “routine”. It follows both a “how to” manual as well as an algorithm-based guide to allow the reader to understand the thought process behind the proposed treatment strategy. In each chapter, international experts address how to avoid being in tough surgical situations through preoperative planning, how to better deal with commonly encountered intra-operative findings, how to deal with difficult laparoscopic, open, endoscopic, and anorectal cases, and how to avoid medico-legal issues. Colorectal Surgery Consultation is simple and succinct and provides pragmatic advice and reproducible techniques that can be readily implemented by surgeons of varying experience to successfully treat complex colorectal problems through endoscopic and endoluminal approaches that may make the difference in patient outcomes.

Abstract
Complexities in Colorectal Surgery: Decision-Making and Management provides a unique, modern, practical guide that covers the strategic evaluation, specific approaches, and detailed management techniques utilized by expert colorectal surgeons caring for patients with complex problems whether they result from underlying colorectal disease or from complications arising from previous surgical therapy. The text is formatted as both a "how-to" manual as well as an algorithm-based guide allowing the reader to understand the thought process behind the proposed treatment strategies. By making use of evidence-based recommendations, each chapter will include not only diagnostic and therapeutic guidelines, but also a narrative by the author on his/her operative technical details and perioperative "tips and tricks" that they utilize in the management of these complex surgical challenges. This test includes chapters on the assessment of risk and nutritional intervention methods utilized to minimize perioperative complications. In addition, sections on medical and surgical therapies for abdominal, pelvic and anorectal disease are incorporated. Moreover, the technical challenges of managing complications resulting from the original or subsequent operations is addressed. The underlying focus throughout the text is to provide pragmatic and understandable solutions that can be readily implemented by surgeons of varying experience to successfully treat complex colorectal problems. The text also goes beyond the technical aspects of colorectal surgery and includes special sections highlighting the essence of a surgeon. These include chapters describing the importance of the first encounter, building patient rapport, and demonstrating confidence and competence while showing humility and avoiding arrogance. Additionally, aspects involving the medical-legal, ethical, and economic challenges confronting surgeons are covered.

Abstract
Laparoscopic and robotic approaches to colon, rectum and the small intestine have undergone radical change since the introduction of minimally invasive surgical techniques. At the beginning of this revolution, the most common anastomotic techniques have been extracorporeal. As a few surgeons became more familiar with minimally invasive suturing techniques, intracorporeal anastomosis became possible. However, the change from an extracorporeal approach has been slow to realization for the vast majority of surgeons. While there are multiple reasons for this slow adoption, the most common are perceived difficulty with suturing in a closed space, the feeling of lack of control, and the worry of increased infection in the abdomen. This book details the latest information in addressing and dispelling these fears. It provides a useful guide to techniques required to perform intracorporeal anastomoses both in laparoscopic and robotic surgery, and it shows the huge advantages to the patient, surgeon and to our health care system. Written by experts in the field, chapters serve as a definitive guide to the performance of intracorporeal techniques to all general and colon and rectal surgeons performing bowel resection both for benign and malignant disease. The chapters contain ample color photographs and videos describing each technique. Intracorporeal Anastomosis primarily focuses on laparoscopic and robotic techniques and contains the latest published data describing the advantages of using these minimally invasive surgical techniques.

Abstract
This book is designed specifically to help equip new surgeons with the anatomical and technical knowledge to supplement hands on experience in minimally invasive colon and rectal surgery. There are multiple colorectal surgeries which distinctly lend themselves to the use of the laparoscopic approach. To assist the junior surgeon who is embarking on a career in surgery, expert surgeons and educators in the field of colon and rectal surgery from around the country authored the chapters included in this book. Chapters describe key elements of each surgery, including the order of surgery, when and how the surgeon created tension, rotated the patient, and optimized flow of the surgery. Chapters also contain tips and pitfalls that are not always explicitly presented when describing a surgical approach in order to provide readers with a diverse toolkit. Each chapter is also full of new illustrations that show the direction of traction, the line of dissection, and the anatomy of the colon. The illustrations also present tools in a color-coded format to clearly distinguish between the surgeon’s and the assistant’s tools. Laparoscopic Colectomy: A Step by Step Guide is a valuable resource to residents and junior attendings who wish to master laparoscopic colon and rectal surgery.

Abstract
This book is the structured, comprehensive work of experienced surgeons and constitutes the condensed and succinct epitome of knowledge and guidance for those interested in Laparoscopic Colon Surgery (LCS), focusing only on colon laparoscopy. The milestones in LCS are presented offering valuable background information about the evolution of LCS throughout the years and presenting how it still has a limited application, no matter the need for minimal invasive, fast-track, surgical procedures that can offer better quality to patients and less cost for any healthcare system. The book aims to highlight the preferred diagnostic procedures, the right methods for the efficient and rational selection of patients, the choice of the best surgical techniques and treatments, and the best management of post-operative complications for an early discharge. It provides adequate information to the surgeons or the surgical residents interested in LCS about how to select, what to avoid, what instruments to use, what techniques to follow, how the evaluation of patient’s anatomy can lead to better surgical planning, and the add-on of robotic colon surgery in the quality of patients’ life. Moreover, the book provides information about the most efficient anaesthesia adequate for LCS; information that most books of its kind do not include. Finally, the book provides excellent information about the best education and practices to be followed in LCS; something of special importance after considering the level of difficulty associated with LCS and the high conversion rate compared to other laparoscopic procedures. Although the primary focus of this book are surgeons (LCS, GI, General) and surgical residents, the content still can offer valuable information to these healthcare leaders who are interested in understanding the milestones and benefits of the right model of education, and the best practices related to LCS.
