520    This volume provides a comprehensive and state-of-the-art 
       overview of the current diagnosis and treatment strategies
       for Crohn's disease. Care of these patients and clinical 
       conditions can be quite complex and often require a 
       multidisciplinary approach. Sections of the book are based
       on the most current, evidenced-based resources and have 
       been structured to review the etiology and diagnosis of 
       Crohn's disease, discuss advances in medical and surgical 
       treatment, illustrate emerging technologies impacting the 
       care of patients with Crohn's disease, and examine 
       functional and quality of life outcomes in this patient 
       population. The text reviews our understanding of the 
       influence of molecular and genetic factors in the 
       development and pattern of Crohn's disease. Current 
       methods of diagnosis and strategies in the medical 
       management of patients with Crohn's disease are evaluated 
       including the use of biologic agents. Resection and bowel 
       sparing techniques for primary and recurrent disease as 
       well as advances in endoscopy and laparoscopy are 
       discussed in detail. In addition, factors influencing the 
       quality of life of patients with Crohn's disease are 
       examined including nutrition, enterostomal care, fertility,
       and sexual function. Written by recognized experts in 
       their field, Crohn's Disease: Basic Principles highlights 
       the integrated multidimensional aspect of caring for 
       patients with Crohn's disease and will be of great value 
       to colon and rectal surgeons, general surgeons, 
       gastroenterologists, internists, as well as fellows and 
       upper level residents in training. .
