The introduction of parenteral nutrition support has given patients with short bowel syndrome the time they need to achieve maximal intestinal rehabilitation and has allowed these patients to survive. The pioneering work of Drs. Byrnes and Wilmore in the 1990s focused on novel techniques to enhance intestinal adaptation and absorption, including modification of diet, special nutrients, oral rehydration solutions, growth factors, and surgical techniques. Intestinal Failure and Rehabilitation: A Clinical Guide brings together an expert group of clinicians to help us understand current information regarding the prevention, diagnosis, care, and management of patients with intestinal failure.

Brand: Brand: Springer

Paul Sugarbaker and his colleagues have persevered in the study and treat­ ment of peritoneal carcinomatosis. The peritoneal cavity has many unique and incompletely appreciated properties. These properties, coupled with the biologic behavior of many cancers, results in the seeding and growth of these cancers on the peritoneum. Many of these cancers remain localized to the peritoneum only, never metastasizing to other sites. One possible reason for this may be the obstruction of the afferent lymphatics on the undersurface of the diaphragm. The mucopolysaccharides produced by many of these neoplasma are probably viscous enough to obstruct these lymphatics, leading to the syndrome of pseudomyxoma peritonei. Many of the neoplasms taking residence on the peritoneum have extremely long cell-cycle times and are resistant to radiotherapy and many chemotherapeutic agents. How­ ever, much can be done for these patients - resection of primary cancers, omentectomies to reduce ascites formation, management of recurrent ascites, management of intestinal obstruction, nutritional care, and, hopefully, intraperitoneal chemotherapy. We have reviewed many of these problems in the past [1-7]. Dr. Sugarbaker and his colleagues have organized the current state of knowledge and technology for continuing use. The book provides a basis for thoughtful, prospective research planning. John S. Spratt, M. D. , F. A. C. S.
