The performance of intestinal anastomoses has gradually evolved from an apprenticeship art to a scientific practice. Basic principles for the safe conduct of an intestinal anastomosis still hold true, however, there is much new literature on the role of anastomotic adjuncts including biological membranes, growth factors and a range of bioprosthetic agents as well as an improved understanding of dysregulation of collagen and inflammatory mediators which may contribute to anastomotic dehiscence and failure. "Intestinal Anastomosis: Basic Science, Construction Techniques and the Management of Anastomotic Failure" is a fully illustrated, up-to-date, comprehensive text which brings together all aspects of the basic science and comparative outcomes of intestinal anastomoses as well as expert commentary on the management of anastomotic failure and the care of high-risk cases. "Intestinal Anastomosis: Basic Science, Construction Techniques and the Management of Anastomotic Failure" is a valuable teaching aid for gastrointestinal surgeons as well as for surgical trainees engaged in complex elective and emergency gastrointestinal surgery.
The history of intestinal anastomoses.- Experimental animal models, basic science and supports of intestinal anastomoses with determination of anastomotic integrity and strength.- Techniques in intestinal anastomoses in clinical practice.- Technical aspects of high risk intestinal anastomoses.- The management of anastomotic failure.
