This book is a topical review of issues the editors consider to be "hot topics" and will be of interest to qualified consultant colorectal surgeons and those performing general surgery with an interest in colorectal surgery. In addition, the topics picked are likely to be ones that canditates taking the Intercollegiate Examination in General Surgery will be quizzed upon. It is not intended to be a textbook covering all aspects of colorectal surgery. Rather, it is meant to be an up-to-date view of current and probable near future advances. Frontiers in neoplasia, inflammatory bowel disease, anal disorders and management are covered by acknowledged experts, known to be active in the field. The implications of deep pelvic dissection and pouch surgery in males and females are sensitively explored. Each chapter contains three main sections entitled 'What is the problem/issue?', 'Where are we now?' and 'Where are we going?'. Referencing for the first two is key and current; the last section is speculative with the occasional reference. This volume should find a place on the coloproctologist's bookshelf as an exciting review of contemporary themes, complementing traditional textbooks.

Frontiers in Colorectal Disease presents a compilation of articles from the international conference titled ‘Frontiers in Colorectal Disease’. It discusses the aspects of functional disorders, neoplastic disease and inflammatory bowel disease. It addresses the practical management of a variety of disorders of the colon, rectum, and anus. Some of the topics covered in the book are the basis of functional intestinal symptoms; nervous control of the gut; physiological reactions of the gastrointestinal tract to stress; visceral pain; mechanisms of flatulence and diarrhoea; pathophysiology of constipation; Arbuthnot Lane’s disease; and megacolon in adults. The results of surgical treatment of constipation are fully covered. The anorectal incontinence of electrophysiological tests is discussed in detail. The text describes in depth the risk factors in childbirth causing damage to the pelvic floor innervation. A retrospective study of the results of post-anal repair is presented completely. A chapter is devoted to the gracilis muscle transposition for anal incontinence. Another section focuses on the magnitude of risk for cancer in patients with colorectal adenomas. The book can provide useful information to doctors, surgeons, students, and researchers.

Recent developments have favourably and extensively altered general surgical practice. As editor I have happily been able to select certain topics of new and major interest for detailed discussion and have thus had the opportunity to collect these authoritative submissions within the covers of one text. The range of topics is broad. Endoscopy has changed the nature of both investigation and treatment of much gastrointestinal disease and the therapeutic uses of endoscopy continue to grow. That sophisticated new tool of the radiologist, computerized axial tomography, has revolu tionized the diagnosis of intra-abdominal disease, very often permitting precise localization of hitherto occult disease, and, as might be expect ed, it has become helpful in determining both the nature and extent of surgical and other therapy. Although an invasive procedure, intra abdominal angiography has similarly come of age as a means of localiz ing gastrointestinal haemorrhage and controlling such bleeding. Unfortunately, intra-abdominal malignancy continues to be a major source of concern to the general surgeon and the discovery that such tumours are associated with unusual markers, termed oncofetal anti gens, suggests that early diagnosis and early detection of recurrence may yet be feasible. Adjuvant or post-surgical therapy is an exciting de velopment in terms of prolonging the disease-free interval in women with breast cancer limited to regional lymph nodes. Equally efficacious therapy is not yet available for patients with gastrointestinal cancer, highlighting the need for more specific drugs and drug combinations.

Foreword from the Editor: With the second installment in the Quarterly Highlights series, Frontiers in Oncology has once again had a strong quarter, and continues to publish important research, with submissions from across the globe - and readership from across the globe. In this quarter, we saw a number of different impact metrics become updated using recent data. The 2019 impact metrics reflect our competitive and respectable status in the field and amongst competitors. We find it very encouraging to see that our impact has remained high, and thank the entirety of the Editorial Board and Office for their contributions and hard work in doing so. Once again with a record-breaking number of papers to choose from, this Special Edition takes an interdisciplinary approach to highlight important recent findings across the different areas of cancer research. We have opted for a selection of papers that we feel best demonstrates the interdisciplinary and international nature of the journal. We are pleased to announce that we have begun our work on launching a new section in the journal. The new section, which will be our 19th, will focus on dermatological malignancies and cancers of the skin. Given the importance and relevance of skin cancers in today’s climate, we are very excited to be moving forward with this. The journal has been active and present at a number of conferences including the 1st International Lung Cancer Summit, the 15th International Conference on Malignant Lymphoma, and ESMO’s World Congress on Gastrointestinal Cancers. The Editorial Office will also be present at the ESMO 2019 Congress in Barcelona next month (Booth P425) and look forward to meeting our readers and Editors there. Giuseppe Giaccone

Foreword from the Editors: The start of October marks the commencement of Breast Cancer Awareness month, an annual month-long event to raise awareness and express support for those that have been affected by breast cancer in one way or another. Thanks to the incredible work and efforts by the scientific community, we have greatly enhanced our ability to detect breast cancer in its earliest stages, and have been able to develop simple routine screening techniques to ensure that everyone, even those in areas where resources are scarce, can identify early signs of a tumor forming. Our ability to treat breast cancer has greatly improved, becoming more sophisticated and precise. The advent of state-of-the-art imaging instruments, advanced surgical techniques, and immunotherapy means that we are able to treat patients better, being mindful of the plethora of difficulties that arise for breast cancer survivors. Breast cancer, despite tremendous advances in recent decades, remains one of the most common cancer types across the globe, and efforts by the scientific community require continued to support in order to guarantee further advances. In this Special Edition, we present selected articles looking at breast cancer from all angles. Coming from a diverse set of authors, this Special Edition includes manuscripts evaluating nation-wide screening programs, advanced surgical techniques, the future direction of molecular targeting, and more. We would also like to take this opportunity to thank everyone in the wider community for their continued efforts in allowing for accelerated scientific developments, and most importantly for supporting everyone affected both directly and indirectly.

Despite lifestyle improvements, the incidence of rectal cancer is increasing in industrialised countries. Rapid advances in technology, growing knowledge of the biological history of the disease and closer attention to patients' quality of life after surgery have led to a less invasive approach. In the last 15 years, the surgical approach has shifted from extended resection to sphincter-saving procedures, featuring a multidisciplinary approach and a high level of specialisation. The experienced surgeon can plan and choose the "right treatment for the right patient" only with the support of the radiologist, endoscopist and pathologist (preoperative staging), oncologist and radiotherapist (neoadjuvant therapy), and psychologist and stomatherapist (rehabilitation). In addition, the difficult problems of salvage procedure and the reconstruction of anal sphincter after abdominal resection are explored. The aim of this book is to clarify the rapid advances and to offer guidelines for doctors dealing with rectal cancer. Taking into account indications, contraindications, risks, benefits and controversies, the authors offer clear and practice-oriented answers for a wide range of specialists and experts, as well as those new to the field.

Bailey & Love's Short Practice of Surgery remains one of the world's pre-eminent medical textbooks, beloved by generations of surgeons, with lifetime sales in excess of one million copies. Now in its 25th edition, the content has been thoroughly revised and updated while retaining its traditional strengths. Under the stewardship of the eminent editorial team, comprising two editors with experience gained over previous editions and a third editor new to this edition, and in response to reader feedback, the content has been sub-divided into parts to ensure a logical sequence and grouping of related chapters throughout while the text features enthusiastically received in the last edition have been retained. The new edition opens with sections devoted to the underlying principles of surgical practice, investigation and diagnosis, and pre-operative care. These are followed by chapters covering all aspects of surgical trauma. The remainder of the book considers each of the surgical specialties in turn, from elective orthopaedics through skin, head and neck, breast and endocrine, cardiothoracic and vascular, to abdominal and genitourinary. Key features: Authoritative: emphasises the importance of effective clinical examination and soundly based surgical principles, while taking into account the latest developments in surgical practice. Updated: incorporates new chapters on a wide variety of topics including metabolic response to injury, shock and blood transfusion, and surgery in the tropics. Easy to navigate: related chapters brought together into clearly differentiated sections for the first time. Readable: preserves the clear, direct writing style, uncluttered by technical jargon, that has proved so popular in previous editions. User-friendly: numerous photographs and explanatory line diagrams, learning objectives, summary boxes, biographical footnotes, memorable anecdotes and full-colour presentation supplement and enhance the text throughout. Bailey and Love has a wide appeal to all those studying surgery, from undergraduate medical students to those in preparation for their postgraduate surgical examinations. In addition, its high standing and reputation for unambiguous advice also make it the first point of reference for many practising surgeons. The changes that have been introduced to the 25th edition will only serve to strengthen support for the text among all these groups.

The theme of the current workshop was identified several years ago and was considered by the working group of the National Large Bowel Cancer Project to be an appropriate workshop topic. Although the subject was important then, it was not possible to conduct such a workshop at that time. In the interim, not only did the problems associated with colorectal metastasis still exist, but new insights on the biology and treatment of colorectal cancer metastasis emerged, making the workshop topic especially important and relevant. With input from an expert Planning Committee, a unique program was designed to provide an opportunity for information exchange between basic scientists and clinical investigators. The published proceedings reflect the organization of the workshop which consisted of five sections: Section I. The Biology of Colorectal Cancer Metastasis co-chaired by Drs. J. Isaiah Fidler and George Poste Controversies in the Management of Patients with Colorectal Cancer Section II.
