About this Research Topic
Over the past few years, there have been several advancements in proctology and colorectal surgery. Consequently, the need to have a tailored treatment for each patient emerged. This revolution involved both benign (haemorrhoidal disease, anal and pilonidal fistula, diverticulitis, fecal incontinence, inflammatory bowel diseases) and malignant (colorectal cancer) disorders. In addition, translational research and targeted therapies have improved the outcome and prognosis of patients with colorectal cancer.
In the present Research Topic, we are encouraging experienced colleagues to submit original research articles, case studies, and review articles regarding the main points of debate of proctology and colorectal cancer.
Areas for authors to focus on include, but are not limited to:
• Colorectal Cancer
• Proctology and Pelvic Floor
• Emerging Technologies
• Indocyanine green fluorescence angiography
• Minimally Invasive Surgery
• Robotic-Assisted Surgery
Keywords: Colorectal Cancer, Emerging Technologies, Indocyanine green fluorescence, Proctology, Pelvic floor, Translational Research, Minimally Invasive Procedures, Arterial Embolization
Important Note: All contributions to this Research Topic must be within the scope of the section and journal to which they are submitted, as defined in their mission statements. Frontiers reserves the right to guide an out-of-scope manuscript to a more suitable section or journal at any stage of peer review.
