Index
This book covers many aspects of diverticular disease, from new scientific knowledge to exchange of clinical experience. It provides much-needed information to basic scientists and clinicians alike on a subject that is rarely found on the agenda of meetings and symposia and where there is a paucity of scientific discussion. The up-to-date research findings in this book are at the highest scientific level.
