Anus: Surgical Treatment and Pathology by Richard Cohen, Alastair Windsor

By Richard Cohen, Alastair Windsor

There is a rise in specialisation inside of basic surgical procedure and now even inside of its sub specialties. Colorectal surgical procedure is without doubt one of the biggest of the subspecialties of normal surgical procedure, and one of many components the place trainees and advisor normal /colorectal surgeons are least convinced is of their knowing of the anatomy, physiological pathology and administration of the anal canal and pelvis.

Currently to be had there are books out there targeted round the normal administration of colorectal sickness, however the time is now correct for a definitive textual content at the anal canal and pelvis in particular.

Glup: Aventuras en el canal alimentario


Mary Roach nos lleva a un viaje inolvidable… a través del tubo digestivo, esa parte primary de nuestro cuerpo que a veces se convierte en un tabú.

¿Por qué l. a. comida crujiente nos resulta tan atractiva?
¿Por qué es tan difícil encontrar palabras para defi nir sabores y olores?
¿Por qué el estómago no se digiere a sí mismo?
¿Cuánto se puede comer antes de “explotar”?

Lleno de curiosidades y anécdotas, pasearemos entre laboratorios de pruebas de sabor de alimentos para mascotas, trasplantes fecales, o viajaremos a un estómago en vivo para observar qué ocurre allí con l. a. comida. De l. a. mano de Roach viajamos por el mundo para conocer asesinos, científicos locos, exorcistas (que han llegado a administrar agua bendita rectal) o terroristas…

Al igual que todos los libros de Roach, Glup trata no solo de cuerpos humanos, sinode seres humanos.

Advanced Physiological Measurements Barostat Measurement of Rectal Compliance The barostat machine has a pump which can rapidly inject or withdraw air from a balloon in order to maintain an intraballoon pressure within a tight pressure window. The pressure is measured within the balloon via a separate line. The volume within the balloon is then constantly recorded. There are many differences in the equipment and distension protocols in barostat measurements. The rectal balloon can be either an elastic balloon or an inelastic bag.

Reflex activity dysfunction has been noted in pruritus ani with increased depth and duration of IAS relaxation in response to rectal distension [72]. Symptoms start within an hour of an exaggerated IAS relaxation suggesting that this allows the passive leakage of irritative faecal matter. There is also conflicting evidence on the role of the RAIR and ‘sampling reflex’ in the ability to discriminate rectal contents. Some studies have found no effect of the loss of RAIR after rectal anastomosis on discriminatory ability, but others have found that when the RAIR returns after the intramural plexus bridges the anastomosis, the discriminatory ability increases [73, 74].

The rectal mucosal receptors respond to the distension stimulus, and this is transmitted along 24 the intramural nerve plexus to initiate relaxation in the internal anal sphincter. Although the RAIR is mediated by the intramural plexus, it is modulated by the extrinsic autonomic supply, demonstrated by the lack of relationship between intensity of stimulus and anal canal relaxation in spinal injury patients. The chemical mediators of the RAIR are controversial as with the tonic control of the IAS.
