Editorial by the Editor-in-Chief
In the current issue you can find three review papers.
I especially recommend the article which is a compendium of knowledge about Hirschsprung’s disease. It’s an interdisciplinary article because its authors are Colleagues from the Paediatric Department and from the Department of General and Colorectal Surgery for adult patients in Łódź. As we know, in adulthood Hirschsprung’s disease is very rare, most patients are diagnosed and treated in childhood, including 80-90% of children with Hirschsprung’s disease showing symptoms already in the neonatal period. General surgeons may come across adult patients with not diagnosed congenital aganglionosis who had earlier been for years treated due to chronic constipations and abdominal pain. General surgeons therefore don’t deal with these patients on an everyday basis, that is why a reminder and an update of knowledge related to the diagnostics and treatment of this disease seems to be important.
The author of the second review paper is an anaesthesiologist. The article presents the methods of increasing the safety of patients undergoing colonoscopy. The author assesses the risk of analgosedation, the monitoring of the patient both during the anaesthesia and in the post-anaesthesia care unit.
