Essentials of Bowel Anastomosis is intended to be a comprehensive yet concise reference work covering modern techniques of bowel surgery, describing both hand-sewn and stapled anastomoses in two settings, conventional open surgery, and minimally invasive surgery. This text covers the entire spectrum of gastrointestinal anastomosis, including anatomy, indications, and basic surgical principles and techniques through detailed instruction in both hand-sewn and stapled anastomoses, making this book unique in its coverage of how to deal with both simple and complex gastrointestinal conditions.
Essentials of Bowel Anastomosis was originally developed by Dr. Zarour as an operative manual to accompany the Essentials of Bowel Anastomosis (EBA)® course. This course was introduced to expose the candidate to safe surgical practice within a controlled setting, and focuses on teaching and assessing skill acquisition of safe surgical techniques common to all forms of gastrointestinal surgery.
