The Ileoanal Pouch Book Description :

This book gives a comprehensive overview of surgery that results in creating an ileoanal pouch or continent ileostomy. It deals with the entire journey of pouch surgery starting from patient selection and counselling to technical tips and tricks and ending in managing pouch function and failure. Containing a patient experience section this volume helps clinicians better understand what a patient expects from the ileoanal pouch. This is a very specialised topic but one that is covered very poorly and this book has the potential to consolidate all that is known about the topic to provide a comprehensive overview on the surgery and its consequences.

The Kock Pouch Book Description :

This book is about the recently revived technique of Kock pouch in inflammatory bowel disease. It discusses the Kock pouch as an alternative to patients not suitable for a pelvic pouch or where the pelvic pouch has failed. It provides clinicians with all the necessary information on patient guidance and surgical revisions after a long life with a Kock pouch. The reader will learn about the development of the pouch, pre and post-operative strategies, surveillance, complications and the limitations and weaknesses of the method. New pioneering experimental methods used by the authors are also discussed. The use of ileorectal anastomosis and Kock’s continent ileostomy has regained interest as the long term problems of the pelvic pouch have and this book brings the knowledge and valuable experiences of a few experts at international centres to a large audience. This is an indispensable guide for colorectal surgeons, gastroenterologists and stoma therapi sts involved in the care of patients with inflammatory bowel disease where colectomy is still needed, either in an emergency setting or due to dysplasia or cancer.

The Essentials of Pouch Care Nursing Book Description :

This innovative book will provide the nurse, working within a general or specialist surgical unit, with the information required to care for a patient who has undergone surgery resulting in the formation of an ileal anal pouch, Koch pouch, Colo-anal pouch or continent urinary diversions. These techniques have been with us for more than twenty years but have in the main only been performed within specialist centres. More recently however they have become widely used, as more colorectal and urology surgeons acquire the skills to perform the procedure. In response to this, the nurse needs to acquire the skills to care for these patients pre-operatively, post-operatively and through their rehabilitation. Julia Williams has drawn together the work of acknowledged experts in this field, both nursing and medical, to produce a book that will be essential reading for all those who practice in this fast-developing specialty.
