Abstract
Each chapter of this new book on advanced lower GI endoscopy and endoluminal surgery focuses on the thought process and step-wise technical approach to the condition and procedure listed. By using this unique method, practitioners ranging from surgeons-in-training, gastroenterologists-in-training and those early in their career to senior colorectal specialists and gastroenterologist who want to incorporate or improve their advanced endoscopic skills will be able utilize techniques and learn from this gathering of experts. The guiding principle of this work is to create a resource for surgeons and gastroenterologists that extends beyond the currently available texts, and that surgeons and gastroenterologists can turn to when wanting to "brush up" on techniques, find a useful "tip or trick" for a complex patient, or simply learn a reproducible methods for advanced endoscopic procedures. This unique book highlights current knowledge, demonstrates standards of medical care, and provides clear step-by-step reproducible techniques even for the most advanced procedures. Beyond the simple application of technical knowledge the book addresses the deeper questions about the optimal "next step" in dealing with more complex patients. International experts also address future challenges and innovations in lower gastrointestinal endoscopy. Finally, it focuses on specific "tips and tricks" that experts in the field have learned. The format follows that of 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. Throughout the text, each author provides an ongoing narrative of his/her individual techniques along with color illustrations and diagrams to "personally" take the reader through the crucial steps of the procedure, and key points of patient care inherent to that topic. Additionally, where appropriate, links to online videos will give the reader an up-front look into technical aspects of EMR, ESD, endoscopic stent placements, CELS, as well as NOTES. This book will be useful to colorectal surgeons, general surgeons, and gastroenterologists who want to learn or improve their skills in lower gastrointestinal endoscopy and advanced endoscopic interventions. Furthermore, this book will be of particular interest to the surgeons-in-training, and gastroenterologist-in-training that are often called upon to manage a variety of colorectal conditions through an endoscopic approach.

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
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 volume provides a comprehensive overview of quality metrics and methods used to improve quality for all major modalities of CRC screening. It introduces the readers to the evidence of effectiveness behind various CRC screening modalities: stool-based tests (Fecal Occult Blood, Fecal Immunochemical and Fecal DNA tests), flexible sigmoidoscopy, colonoscopy and CT colonography. In-depth chapters review the latest guidelines for CRC screening, compare differences among the five major national guidelines, and highlight the need for valid quality and cost indicators. While the main focus of this volume is on colonoscopy, since most quality indicators and analyses have focused on this modality of screening and surveillance, one chapter is devoted to quality indicators of other screening modalities. Differences between process and outcome measures are also highlighted and a small but valid set of recommended national measures are listed. Written by experts in the field, Colorectal Cancer Screening: Quality and Benchmarks is an important and useful resource written for gastroenterologists, primary care physicians, general and colorectal surgeons, family physicians, and investigators with research focus in screening and quality metrics.

This easy-to-use atlas comprises a collection of representative common and unusual virtual colonoscopy (CT colonography, CTC) cases that physicians and radiologists may expect to encounter during their clinical practice. The atlas reflects the important recent advances in image acquisition, patient preparation, and image processing and is thus completely up-to-date. Each case is presented with the native CT images, integrated images obtained by 3D image processing, and colonoscopic correlation.…

Abstract
This easy-to-use atlas comprises a collection of representative common and unusual virtual colonoscopy (CT colonography, CTC) cases that physicians and radiologists may expect to encounter during their clinical practice. The atlas reflects the important recent advances in image acquisition, patient preparation, and image processing and is thus completely up-to-date. Each case is presented with the native CT images, integrated images obtained by 3D image processing, and colonoscopic correlation. Topics covered include normal appearances, anatomical variants, pitfalls, diverticula, lipomas, inflammatory bowel disease, polyps, flat lesions, cancers, and the postsurgical colon. By presenting the main features of anatomy and pathology, this atlas will serve as an invaluable tool both for radiologists performing CTC and for clinicians who need to review the CTC examinations of their patients.
Contents

Abstract
This book presents state of the art knowledge and guidance on the use of therapeutic colonoscopy for all of the usual indications, including hemostasis for colorectal bleeding, resection of benign and malignant lesions, and decompression and recanalization of obstructed bowel. Technical aspects are covered in detail, with advice on indications and instrumentation and provision of tips and tricks of proven practical value. With respect to polypectomy, separate chapters focus on technique for pedunculated polyps and the choice between endoscopic piecemeal mucosal resection and endoscopic submucosal dissection for large sessile polyps. The closing chapter looks to the future of therapeutic colonoscopy. The clearly written text is supported by numerous helpful illustrations. Over the years, technological developments have markedly increased the therapeutic, as opposed to the diagnostic, role of endoscopy. This book will be an invaluable aid in clinical practice for all who are involved in the performance of therapeutic colonoscopy.
