ABSTRACT

During the eleven years that elapsed since the last edition of this work, knowledge of the diseases of the rectum and colon has shown extensive advances, particularly in the field of pathogenesis and treatment of various lesions of this portion of the alimentary tract. Hence a large part of the book had to be entirely rewritten; several new chapters have been added, one of them dealing with precancerous conditions. The arrangement of the subjects described has been altered in such a manner that the first part of the book is devoted to diseases of the rectum and anus, while diseases of the colon have been placed in the second part. A new feature consists of photographic reproductions of operations. The advantage of such illustrations over schematic drawings is subject to discussion. The book represents mainly a record of the author's own experience, and this fact must be kept in mind
