Magazine Description

In this issue

Conquerors of the ‘Temple of Surprises’ It used to be said that the abdomen and the intestines are a temple of surprises. The gastrointestinal domain is called such because of the many diagnostic dilemmas a physician is usually confronted with in accurately evaluating a patient who comes in with an abdominal problem. And if an accurate diagnosis would be hard to arrive at, managing the patient properly and adequately would be a challenge, too. In this issue, H&L features the Philippine Society of Gastroenterology, the organization of diplomates and Fellows in the specialty which has opened the doors to the “temple of surprises”. With the aid of modern technology allowing direct visualization of what used to be hidden and unseen folds and linings of the gastro-intestinal system, pathologies such as a pre-malignant polyp can now be detected and excised, preventing the development of colorectal carcinoma, which is a leading killer worldwide. H&L also gives a comprehensive review and update of the various ways to screen colorectal cancer, and explains colostomies and stomas in colorectal cancer surgery.
