About the book

Abdominal trauma is a complex surgical problem. The presence of many vital splanchnic organs, the specificities of their anatomical structure, vascular architectonics and innervation, the existence of pathogenic microflora in the intestine - all this leads to significant intra-peritoneal bleeding, the rapid development of peritonitis, and the occurrence of irreversible changes in organs and tissues. Early diagnosis of these complications makes it possible to determine the optimal treatment tactics. Continued intra-peritoneal bleeding and peritonitis are absolute indications for laparotomy. The success of the operation depends on the knowledge of the surgeon, the correctness and speed of decision-making, and the clarity of the operation. While surgical management remains the cornerstone, endoscopic techniques and tools are increasingly being applied adjunctively to surgical approaches or, in some cases, in lieu of them. Effective intra- and postoperative management of patients is also important, in particular, prevention and correction of the fatal triad: hypothermia, acidosis, and coagulopathy.

The aim of this book is to describe modern advances in the diagnosis and treatment of abdominal trauma patients and the problems that may arise.

Introducing your Author Service Manager

Ms. Nika Karamatic

As an Author Service Manager, my responsibilities include monitoring and facilitating all publishing activities for authors and editors. From chapter submission and review to approval and revision, copyediting and design, until final publication, I work closely with authors and editors to ensure a simple and easy publishing process. I maintain constant and effective communication with authors, editors and reviewers, which allows for a level of personal support that enables contributors to fully commit and concentrate on the chapters they are writing, editing, or reviewing. I assist authors in the preparation of their full chapter submissions and track important deadlines and ensure they are met. I help to coordinate internal processes such as linguistic review, and monitor the technical aspects of the process. As an ASM I am also involved in the acquisition of editors. Whether that be identifying an exceptional author and proposing an editorship collaboration, or contacting researchers who would like the opportunity to work with IntechOpen, I establish and help manage author and editor acquisition and contact.
