It is challenging for most clinicians to comprehensively and quickly grasp the forefront knowledge of colorectal cancer in an era of Big Data. In this book, therefore, we carefully collected a series of excellent articles contributed by international leading experts on colorectal cancer that cover the etiology, screening, surgical treatment and adjuvant radiochemotherapy of this malignancy by focusing on the hottest clinical issues and the most promising treatments. It includes practical chapters on single-port laparoscopic surgery, CT colonography, post-operative outcomes, transanal minimally invasive surgery, etc.

We are grateful for this opportunity to publish this book with the cooperation of AME Publish Company and thank the editors and the publisher for their outstanding job in bringing out this wonderful textbook. We hope those who read this book will gain new insights about the similarities and differences in how the West and East deliver colorectal cancer care.
