Sixty-one papers presented by authors from 22 countries at the Third International Congress of Hedrologicum Congelium in October 1968 at Erlangen-Nuremberg, Germany, are reproduced in this book. The papers are in English, and most have bibliographies. There is no printed discussion of any of the papers, and there is no index. The papers are grouped in several categories: injuries of the colon and rectum, anal fistulas, chronic obstipation, incontinential alvi, colon polyps and cancer relationship, cancer, colitis, diverticulitis, proctitis, diagnostic procedures, and several miscellaneous subjects.
The quality of the papers varies greatly. In my opinion, the best section is on
