This publication is issued on the occasion of the 8th Biennial Congress of the European Council of Coloproctology (ECCP). Previous seven ECCP Congresses have been very successful. They established a tradition of not-too-large meetings of a high scientific standard and pleasant social atmosphere. The number of free papers and posters has been increased and in the main programme you can find many renowned experts from the whole Europe and the United States of America. Coloproctology today is providing exciting changes in the care of multiple diseases. No doubt, the 8th Biennial Congress in Prague will continue the positive tradition of previous congresses.

The aim of this volume is to help doctors who are interested in coloproctology to get new information which will be presented at the 8th Biennial Congress of ECCP. It is true that only a lesser part from the whole programme of the Congress appears in this publication but nevertheless the reader can acquire many valuable information of this field therein.
