XXI Biennial Congress of the International Society of University Colon and Rectal Surgeons – ISUCRS

 June 25-28, 2006, Istanbul, Turkey





Dear Colleagues,

It is an honour and a great pleasure for us to have XXI. Biennial Congress of ISUCRS in Istanbul between June 25-28, 2006.

We believe that it will be beneficial to evaluate the updated subjects on Colorectal Surgery with 3 conferences, 11 panels, 3 satellite symposiums, oral, video and poster presentations during congress. This book containing the most important subjects of the colorectal surgery includes a group of oral presentations selected by the consultant committee of the publisher.

World Medicine Authorities and Medicine Associations indicate the scientific importance of our congress. This book is the most important evidence of this.

We wish this book, the symbol of our congress, to be beneficial for the science.

Indru T. Khubchandani, M.D. - Kemal Alemdaroglu, M.D.
