Rectal cancer is one of the most prevalent cancers world-wide. It is also a paradigm for multimodal management, as the combination of surgery, chemotherapy and radiotherapy is often necessary to achieve the optimal outcome. Recently, international experts met in Heidelberg, Germany to discuss the latest developments in the management of rectal cancer, including the anatomic and pathologic basis, staging tools, surgical concepts including fast-track surgery and laparoscopic resection, functional outcome after surgery and the role of radio- and chemotherapy. This monograph summarizes this meeting and gives an extensive overview of the current concepts in management of rectal cancer.

From the reviews:

"To illustrate the latest advancement in the multidisciplinary aspects of the treatment of rectal cancer based on the presentations delivered in a recent international meeting held in Heidelberg, Germany. This is a very good, up-to-date book, written by experts on the different aspects of the interdisciplinary treatment of rectal cancer. This is probably one of the best concise books about the treatment of rectal cancer. It should be on the shelf of every surgeon or physician with a special interest in this topic." (M. Montorsi, Digestive and Liver Disease, Vol. 38, 2006)
