Frequently abdominal tumors and other processes can affect and invade adjacent structures. These phenomena can happen anywhere in the abdominal cavity, from the diaphragm to the pelvis.

These procedures are sometimes associated with secondary transplant surgical procedures. This is the first book to cover complex abdominal surgery in this manner, and is sure to be a great aid in helping the surgeon to find solutions to some of the most difficult problems in surgery.
