Frozen sections diagnostics in visceral surgery : Stomach and intestines.
Summary of "Frozen sections diagnostics in visceral surgery : Stomach and intestines."
A close collaboration between clinicians and pathologists is essential for establishing an optimal therapeutic concept concerning disorders of the stomach and intestines. Intraoperative frozen sections form part of this cooperation in order to obtain an intraoperative diagnosis or to clarify unclear findings and to be able to adapt operative procedures accordingly. For avoiding mistakes, knowledge of indications as well as limitations of intraoperative frozen sections of the stomach and intestines is mandatory. The same objective is pursued by establishing an unhindered flow of information.
