Walter and Miller’s Textbook of Radiotherapy: Radiation Physics, Therapy and Oncology

by Paul R Symonds

Walter and Miller's Textbook of Radiotherapy is a key textbook for therapeutic radiography students as well as trainee clinical and medical oncologists, clinical physicists and technologists. The book is divided into 2 sections. The first section covers physics and provides a comprehensive review of radiotherapy physics. This section is designed to be non-physicist friendly, to simply and clearly explain the physical principles upon which radiotherapy and its technology are based. The second section is a systematic review by tumour site giving an up to date summary of radiotherapy practice. The title also covers the place of chemotherapy, surgery and non-radiotherapy treatments as well as the principles of cancer patient treatment including supportive care and palliative treatments.

A Practical Guide to Peritoneal Malignancy: The PMI Manual

by Tom Cecil

Peritoneal malignancy is a rapidly growing field within surgical oncology. National and International treatment programmes and training curricula are being established worldwide to co-ordinate treatment and management of these challenging clinical problems. A large body of evidence now exists, but the practical implications of this evidence base remain unclear. The Peritoneal Malignancy Institute in Basingstoke, the largest centre in the world, is at the forefront of  new developments and techniques. This manual combines the experience of the PMI  with the latest evidence to provide a practice-oriented guide to the successful set up and running of a peritoneal malignancy unit.

Surgical Neuro-Oncology

by Russell Lonser

Part of the Neurosurgery by Example series, this volume on surgical neuro-oncology presents exemplary cases in which renowned authors guide readers through the assessment and planning, decision making, surgical procedure, after care, and complication management of common and uncommon disorders. The cases explore a number of different types of nervous systems tumors, including glioblastoma, medulloblastoma, skull tumors, and more. Each chapter also contains "pivot points" that illuminate changes required to manage patients in alternate or atypical situations, and pearls for accurate diagnosis, successful treatment, and effective complication management. Containing a focused review of medical evidence and expected outcomes, Surgical Neuro-Oncology is appropriate for neurosurgeons who wish to learn more about a subspecialty, and those preparing for the American Board of Neurological Surgery oral examination.

Atlas of Laparoscopic Gastrectomy for Gastric Cancer: High Resolution Image for New Surgical Technique

by Chang-Ming Huang

Due to recent advances in laparoscopic gastrectomy for gastric cancer, a high-resolution atlas in this field was felt necessary. This book describes the laparoscopic surgical procedure and precautions of lymph node (LN) dissection, comprehensively. The details of preoperative preparation, regional LN dissection, and digestive tract reconstruction are introduced based on a large numbers of clinical cases. Modified intracorporeal anastomosis procedure and clinical application of indo cyanine green (ICG) in LN dissection are included. This atlas will be of benefit to gastrointestinal surgeons, surgical oncologists, and minimally invasive surgeons.

Handbook of Musculoskeletal Tumors

by Matthew T. Wallace

A quick-reference handbook with more than 100 figures, charts, and images, Handbook of Musculoskeletal Tumors provides a wide-ranging overview of musculoskeletal tumors for the practicing clinician. From a pathological fracture in the emergency department to a soft tissue tumor in the clinic, musculoskeletal tumors present in clinical practice yet receive minimal exposure in training. Edited by Drs. Matthew T. Wallace and Frank J. Frassica, the book provides readers with concise recommendations for their encounters with diseases including: latent bone lesions and active and aggressive benign bone lesions; osteosarcoma, Ewing sarcoma, and primary lymphoma of bone; myeloma and metastatic bone disease, chondrosarcoma, osteochondroma, multiple hereditary exostoses, Ollier disease, and Mafucci syndrome; benign soft tissue tumors, including lipomatous tumors, nerve sheath tumors, and myxoid, fibrous, and vascular lesions; soft tissue sarcomas, including undifferentiated pleomorphic sarcoma, liposarcomas, synovial sarcoma, rhabdomyosarcoma, and epithelioid sarcoma; and anatomic-specific considerations, including intra-articular lesions and hand, foot, and spine tumors.

Management of Oral Cancers

by Sudhir Bahadur

Tumor biology varies at different subsites in the oral cavity, and therefore carcinoma of the gingivo-buccal sulcus (also known as Indian cancer) behaves differently from carcinoma of the tongue. Oral cancer is very often diagnosed at an advanced stage with neck metastasis, and most cases have a guarded prognosis. Loco-regional recurrences are frequent and morbidity following treatment is considerable. However, results have improved in recent years, particularly in early and certain advanced stages, due to better imaging and case selection, improved surgical techniques, including those for reconstructive surgery, a multidisciplinary team approach and a better understanding of tumor biology and prognostic factors. This book comprehensively and systematically reviews all these aspects of diagnostic and therapeutic advances in oral cancer, particularly discussing early detection, epidemiology, chemoprevention and current research. Written by specialists who are active leaders in basic sciences or clinical fields, the chapters address individual and collective issues in managing patients with oral cancer, and provide insights into various treatment approaches. The authors share their knowledge and experience and provide extensive literature sources to encourage clinicians to be flexible, innovative and help them make the best, educated decisions for individual patients.
