The book based on the proceedings of the second European Workshop on Compression Anastomoses provides experimental and clinical data on the compression anastomosis technique with the bioabsorbable Valtrac ring and considers the prospects for the technique. Bioabsorbable anastomotic rings (BAR) represent a fascinating concept: standardization of anastomoses, a safe technique and expulsion of the material without residues are among the many advantages. In addition, their development means that a single technique can be used to perform the classical end-to-end, end-to-side, and sideto-side anastomoses in most areas of the gastrointestinal tract without any auxiliary tool. This brings a great advantage in terms of practicability. The data presented provide an up-to-date overview of this new technique.
