The Colon, Rectum, and Anus, Part II issue of Selected Readings in General Surgery (SRGS) is the second of a three-part series. It specifically addresses neoplastic diseases of this region, refinements in surgical techniques, and the use of effective adjuvant and neoadjuvant chemotherapy to help reduce mortality rates.
The goal of this issue is to help improve surgeons' understanding of the malignant potential of colorectal adenomas, and the implementation of programs for cancer prevention through early detection (such as fecal blood analysis) and the removal of premalignant lesions. This issue will also provide guidance for diagnosing and operatively managing colon, rectal, and anal cancer, and it will help surgeons better manage complicated presentations of colon cancer as well as understand the differences in managing cancer, rectal cancer, and anal cancer.
