ABSTRACT

The author's stated aims were to provide in written form the part of his experience useful to the general practitioner, to correlate the basis science studies and clinical work of medical students and house staff, to provide a detailed discussion of proctoscopy of use to the general practitioner and internist, and to provide an incentive for the general surgeon to bring his results in anorectal surgery to the same creditable plane achieved in other fields of surgery. The first chapter of "Clinical Proctology" is a thoughtful thorough discussion of anal and rectal anatomy and physiology. The discussion of diagnostic procedures gives useful information concerning technique, equipment used, and the findings of proctoscopy. The separate chapters concerned with the diagnosis and treatment of hemorrhoids, fissure, abscess and fistula, contracture, and preoperative and postoperative care of these patients are based on the thesis that infection is the principal and always underlying cause
