This book contains papers from a group of Italian academic surgeons that contributed to a national research program entitled `Progress in Abdominal Surgery'. The research was supported by the Italian Ministry of the University. The primary initiative of the group was to combine experimental and clinical approaches in the study of several surgical abdominal diseases. The authors of the single chapters were requested to present an update in their own field of research. This volume summarizes several important updates in abdominal surgery and pathophysiology. The contributions are grouped in five sections, namely: surgical infections, hepato-biliary and pancreatic surgery, colo-rectal surgery, minimally invasive surgery, and transplantation. This book on surgical research in Italy is therefore addressed to academic surgeons, or surgeons interested in research.
