    A resource that combines oncologic principles with treatment plans for the surgical management of neoplasms 

    Textbook of General Surgical Oncology is a practical and comprehensive reference that offers authoritative coverage of a wide variety of oncologic concepts and disorders. The book opens with detailed discussion of the general principles of molecular biology, cancer epidemiology, surgical oncology, radiation oncology, medical oncology, immunotherapy, nuclear imaging, and molecular diagnostics.  The text then focuses on site-specific neoplasms, such as those of the skin, soft tissue, bone, head/neck, brain, lung, mediastinum, breast, pleura, peritoneum, as well as tumors that affect various systems, including the endocrine, gastrointestinal, hepatobiliary, genitourinary, gynecologic, and hematopoietic. 

    ·        Each chapter is written by an internationally recognized expert on the topic

    ·        Learning aids include chapter-ending Q&A and Practical Pearls

    ·        Outstanding review for the new General Surgical Oncology certification examination

    This new textbook addresses an interesting topic, that is, “complex” surgical oncology. This term, a relatively new one in the lexicon of cancer management, refers to those complicated procedures that tend to be centralized and performed by experienced surgeons. However, there is much more here than complex procedures.

    The book is in an interesting format. The section editors are a “who's who” of the surgical oncological leadership. The editors have gathered together a collection of international and national authors, all part of the emerging leadership in surgical oncology—a most enlightened approach. Many of the authors are young, actively involved, and part of the development of a new cadre of surgeons focused on oncology. There is, however, a smattering of seniors who have not yet reached their “use by date.” All of these provide a comprehensive text.

    Somewhat politically correct, the book avoids the concern that, as the majority of cancer surgery is per-formed in the United States by general surgeons, no attempt is made to confuse the issue of just what constitutes a complex cancer operation that should be done by a surgical oncologist. The text, 165 chapters, addresses much more than the principles of complex surgical oncology. The chapters include what might be considered standard procedures, particularly in breast and colon, readily performed by well-trained surgeons. It does provide for all surgeons the indications, roles, and efficacy of adjuvant therapy, both pre- and post-operatively.

    As always, trying to be all things to all people provides certain challenges. Many of the chapters adhere to conventional approaches without prediction but are well balanced. There is enough to generate controversy, always a good thing. In this writer's opinion the willingness to address over diagnosis, over investigation, and over treatment is a welcome emergence, albeit hesitatingly. In an age where much of oncologic management is defined and provided by online access, this text will provide a comprehensive source readily searchable for individual topics.

    As we move further into the 21st century, we must emphasize that cancer care is a multidisciplinary approach and a dynamic process. The Textbook of Complex General Surgical Oncology is constructed to serve as a comprehensive resource for clinicians treating cancer patients. The focus of this book is to ensure discussion of core principles as well as to provide guidance in the management of various cancer sites and types. The initial aspect of the book contains an overview of germane general concepts while the vast majority comprises sections categorized as breast, endocrine, gastrointestinal, head and neck, hepatobiliary, melanoma and other cutaneous malignancies, pancreatic, peritoneal, sarcoma and other soft tissue neoplasms, reconstruction, and thoracic.

    Surgical oncology is now recognized by the American Board of Surgery as a distinct specialty of general surgery. This textbook is primarily written by contributors who have been formally trained in surgical oncology. The strength lies in the ensemble of world-class thought leaders who have offered their unparalleled expertise within their niche. Every effort has been made to include institutions from all aspects of the globe.

    It is beyond the scope of this book to include every cancer, as surgical oncologists typically do not manage tumors encompassing the hematopoietic, neurologic, orthopedic, genitourinary, or gynecologic systems. However, it is the intent of the editors that any health-care provider who seeks to learn more about surgical oncology utilize this book as we acknowledge that most operations today on cancer patients are performed by general surgeons.

    This new edition includes the most up-to-date information about the pathophysiology and new therapeutic alternatives for osteoporosis of advanced age. It is written by investigators (clinicians and basic scientists) in the field of aging bone research.
    It was just recently that a new syndrome, osteoporosis of advanced age, was recognized as a new entity with its own pathophysiology and potential treatments. Unfortunately, and despite the fact that hip fractures are mostly a consequence of this process, and apart from the first edition of this book, there are few publications about this subject. 
    The first edition of this book demonstrated that there is a need to understand the particular features of osteoporosis in older persons, which is the main aim of this book. The institutions where the authors are affiliated are highly recognized as the main centers in aging bone research. As an innovation, the second edition includes some aspects of muscle and bone interaction focusing of the impact of age-related muscle loss (sarcopenia) on the pathogenesis of falls and fractures in older persons. As in the previous edition, this book is expected to be the reference guide for geriatricians, gerontologists, and bone biologists as well as medical trainees in order to understand the mechanisms of senile osteoporosis with a practical approach to the treatment of its consequences.

    This practical guide presents the most up-to-date information on the application of non-pharmacological and physical therapeutic measures, either used independently or in combination with pharmacotherapy, for the management of osteoporosis. Pharmacotherapy remains the primary treatment for osteoporosis, but to improve the biomechanical competence of bone and improve quality of life, there needs to be more comprehensive management approach involving non-pharmacological methods. The book opens with a discussion of the diagnosis, pathophysiology, complications and consequences of osteoporosis. Exercise, nutrition, orthotics, and other rehabilitation measures such as whole body vibration and electrical muscle stimulation, each described in details in chapters of their own, have had a beneficial impact on fall and fracture prevention as well as recovery post-fracture. In addition, the application of acupuncture for pain management and movement-based mind-body therapies like tai chi and the Feldenkrais method are explored.

    Providing a description of independent and adjuvant techniques and practices for treatment and improving quality of life, Non-Pharmacological Management of Osteoporosis is an excellent resource for endocrinologists, bone specialists, physical therapists, occupational therapists and all clinical practitioners and staff working with osteoporosis patients.

    Osteoporosis is a common, underdiagnosed, and undertreated condition, complicated by fractures which lead to significant mortality and morbidity. The prevalence of osteoporotic fractures in postmenopausal women exceeds the combined prevalence of breast cancer, stroke, heart failure, and myocardial infarction. Often called "the silent disease," it does not reveal itself with obvious symptoms until a fracture occurs. In the first year after sustaining a hip fracture, mortality is increased by almost 24% in women and is even higher in men. About half of those who sustain an osteoporotic hip fracture become so disabled that they are no longer able to resume their daily activities, and as many as 20% require long-term institutional care. Effective treatments for osteoporosis are now available if it is diagnosed and addressed in a timely manner. Unfortunately, this disease remains shockingly underdiagnosed and undertreated, even in patients who sustain low-trauma hip fractures.
    The past two decades have witnessed radical changes in the diagnosis and management of osteoporosis. The densitometric diagnosis of osteoporosis is noninvasive, quick, and relatively simple. Tools are now available to predict the patient's probability of sustaining fractures, to identify patients who are particularly vulnerable, and to determine which patients will benefit from further investigation and treatment. Various associations have developed guidelines to help clinicians reach a diagnosis and initiate treatment. Due to better understanding of the basic pathophysiology of bone turnover, potent and relatively safe medications that significantly reduce the risk of fractures are now widely available. It is of paramount importance that this disease be diagnosed and treated as early as possible in order to take advantage of these developments and reduce the enormous socioeconomic and psychological impact of osteoporosis.
    Given the burden of osteoporotic fractures, all clinicians should have a working knowledge of e diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of the disease. Clinicians should feel comfortable diagnosing and initiating treatment for the majority of patients with osteoporosis. Only complicated cases or patients who are unresponsive to treatment should be referred to specialists. The aim of this book is to distill the available information on osteoporosis into an easily comprehensible format that will serve as a practical guide for busy clinicians. Numerous boxes, tables, diagrams, and figures present the information in an accessible manner. This book will be of particular use to general practitioners, endocrinologists, rheumatologists, gynecologists, internists, geriatricians, and orthopedic surgeons.

    Although mammography is the primary method used for breast cancer screening, screening mammography is limited especially in women with dense breasts, which includes nearly 50% of all women in the United States. Despite improvements such as digital mammography, computed aided detection, and digital breast tomosynthesis, breast cancer continues to be a leading cause of cancer-related death in women. The recent proliferation of screening breast ultrasound has led to increased health care costs and false positives, with only a slight improvement in breast cancer detection. It is time for a better test.

    This is the first textbook dedicated to the subject of abbreviated breast MRI (AB-MR). The editors are principal investigators in the first multicenter trial evaluating AB-MR. Each chapter is authored by a leading expert in the field of breast MRI.

    AB-MR only takes 10 minutes or less to perform, has a comparable cost to screening breast ultrasound, and detects twice as many cancers compared to combined screening with mammography and ultrasound. The improved performance of AB-MR is irrespective of breast density, family history, overall breast cancer risk, and cancer characteristics (e.g. type, staging, invasive or intraductal, primary or recurrent). As such, it will likely become a routine screening tool in women with dense breasts.

    Key Features

    • A background on breast MR imaging including a review of current research data
    • Fundamental guidelines for implementing, performing, and interpreting AB-MR
    • Technical approaches with proven efficacy, including biopsy methods
