We were happy to receive literature recommendations from Eva Angenete: "Sigmoid Volvulus is a common condition for all surgeons, but of particular importance to colorectal surgeons, as we will be the ones deciding on and performing elective surgery. One surgeon who has extensively studied this condition is Dr Sabri Selçuk Atamanalp, Ataturk University, Turkey. Here are a few of Dr Atamanalp’s recent publications."
