ASCRS Manual of Colon and Rectal Surgery, 2nd Edition | ASCRS
The ASCRS Manual of Colon and Rectal Surgery, 2nd Edition (2014), was designed to provide a rapid access pocket reference for residents, fellows, private clinicians, and allied health professionals caring for patients with colorectal surgical diseases.
The manual (abstracted from the ASCRS Textbook of Colon and Rectal Surgery, 2nd edition) is intended to impart succinct, clinically relevant information for daily patient care. The chapters take an evidence-based approach and many provide ASCRS practice parameters. The contents are presented consistently, with concise overviews of the most clinically relevant topics. The disease chapters discuss etiology, anatomic considerations, patient evaluation, lab results, imaging, diagnosis, and treatment. The surgical chapters address these same issues, in addition to discussion of minimally invasive versus open techniques, possible complications, and perioperative care. Anatomical and technique drawings, operative photos, and algorithms are included. Each chapter also correlates with the core curriculum developed by the Association of Program Directors for Colon and Rectal Surgery.
This edition was edited by Drs. David E. Beck, Steven D. Wexner, Tracy L. Hull, Patricia L. Roberts, Theodore J. Saclarides, Anthony J. Senagore, Michael J. Stamos and Scott R. Steele.
