"This monograph offers the reader an integrated point-of-view about the inflammatory response related to injury, infections and tumors. This integration is based on the hypothesis that the multiple pathophysiological mechanisms making up inflammation represent the re-expression of ontogenic mechanisms during early embryo development as well as the recapitulation of ancestral phylogenetic mechanisms. The relevance of the anti-inflammatory treatments is also highlighted with respect to polytraumatic patients, advances in stem cell research, embryology and the wound healing mechanism.

Readers of this book will have the chance of gaining a unique perspective about of the pathophysiological mechanisms involved in the multiple inflammatory conditions. This integrative concept about inflammation can be applied in biological investigation, as well as in clinical research and translational medicine."

I am delighted to write an introduction to this new volume "Inflammation-related Surgery" which covers information in all its forms including new developments in the exciting area of stem cells. The healing of surgical wounds has always been of central importance to surgeons and even more especially to their patients.

There have been many advances in our understanding of various forms of inflammation and many of these features are relevant to surgical research and clinical surgery. This volume discusses the basic science relating to wound care and injury and should be of interest to all academic surgeons. I wish the authors every success with this magnum opus.
