Renal Cell Carcinoma (Oxford American Oncology Library) 1st Edition

Renal Cell Carcinoma (Oxford American Oncology Library) 1st Edition

While patients with metastatic renal cell carcinoma (mRCC) are now living longer with improved quality of life, the success of novel therapies for mRCC has created challenges for practicing oncologists. Many patients who initially respond to targeted therapies ultimately develop progressive disease due to acquired resistance to these agents. Additionally, some patients do not respond at all to any of the currently approved targeted agents, underscoring the need for continued […]

Radiofrequency Ablation for Small Hepatocellular Carcinoma 1st ed

Radiofrequency Ablation for Small Hepatocellular Carcinoma 1st ed

This book provides a comprehensive guide to the treatment of small hepatocellular carcinoma (sHCC) using a minimally invasive technique: radiofrequency ablation (RFA). RFA has emerged as a new treatment modality and become the main modality of locoregional therapy. Extensive clinical research indicates that RFA is as effective as surgical resection for sHCC, and it has the advantage of being less invasive. However, the outcomes after RFA are largely dependent on […]
