Presents a concise but in-depth information of the various problems a surgeon faces in choosing and preparing a patient for surgery and also managing the various complications that follow after surgery of the gastrointestinal system. Focuses on careful preoperative preparation, use of rigid intraoperative techniques, and thorough postoperative support to lessen the incidence of complications following gastrointestinal surgery. Separate chapters are devoted to advances in research and techniques, conventional tubes and drains and suture materials that form an integral part of good surgery leading to safety of the operated patient. Some chapters are devoted to perioperative nutrition, bowel care, etc. This manual will be of great use, as the surgeons themselves can manage without involving any other gastrointestinal surgeon at least for a short time, which may help to maintain the privacy and secrecy of the situation. Will serve as a carry on hand manual and also act as a stimulus to those interested in giving top-class surgicare towards the safety of their patients, reducing the morbidity and mortality.
