Review quote

From the reviews: "An up-to-date, comprehensive analysis of recent developments in diagnosis and treatment of malignant and the most frequent benign diseases of the colon and rectum. a ] A very interesting book that could be considered a handy guide in everyday activities not only for gastroenterologists, surgeons and oncologist, but also for general practitioners. Medical students too could find it a valuable overview compendium." (L. S. Schipani, Digestive and Liver Disease, Vol. 38, 2006)
