TxNxM1: The Anatomy and Clinics of Metastatic Cancer 2002nd Edition

0792367936

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0792367936]

Although distant metastases are the most dreaded situation in the evolution of cancer of every organ, the medical literature has surprisingly given little attention to the anatomical relationship between the primary tumor and metastasic sites. Only risk factors, treatment possibilities, and survival results are extensively examined.
Stimulated by the occurrence in his practice of some puzzling and unexpected metastases, the author reviewed more than 12,000 references. He looked for anatomical relationships highlighting the relation between the location of the primary tumors and the particular patterns of metastasis observed. It would seem that the `pathways and flows’ are apparently a more decisive factor in the implantation of the metastases than the `seed and soil’ properties of the cancer cells and the metastatic site.
Aided by his colleague Dr. T. Geukens, M.D., the author includes original anatomical drawings, illustrating the sometimes unexpected pathways the cancer cells follow in order to reach the organs where they will become lodged and give rise to metastatic tumors. The subject has apparently not been exhausted in the literature and several ideas are given for further research.

Cancer Disparities: Causes and Evidence-Based Solutions 1st Edition

h

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=0826108822]

There has been remarkable progress in understanding, preventing, detecting, diagnosing, and treating cancer, resulting in a reduction of cancer incidence and mortality in the United States. Despite this, the cancer burden varies considerably by race/ethnicity and socioeconomic status. Cancer incidence rates vary markedly between racial/ethnic groups, but even more startling are the differences in outcome across groups.
Cancer Disparities: Causes and Evidence-Based Solutions helps readers understand the scope and causes of this inequity by providing a detailed analysis of the many factors that result in cancer disparities across the cancer continuum, including the role of race/ethnicity, socioeconomic status, access to and use of services, insurance status, geographic variables, and differences in treatment provided to patients.
Further, it is the first book to describe evidence-based, concrete solutions that can be used to reduce or even eliminate cancer health disparities. Fifteen previously unpublished studies of interventions designed specifically to achieve health equality are described. These studies focus on contextually and culturally appropriate strategies to enhance cancer prevention, screening and early detection, treatment, symptom management, and quality of life in underserved populations.

From the Foreword

Although the prevalence of uncontrolled cancer pain remains unnecessarily high, research has indicated that 90% of cancer patients with pain can be successfully treated with standard therapies. This concise yet extremely comprehensive guide to managing cancer pain will enable nurses on the front lines of pain assessment and management to incorporate effective strategies into their daily practice. It offers quick access to current evidence-based guidelines for busy nurses and nurse practitioners working in all oncology care settings. To facilitate quick information retrieval, the text is designed in a consistently organized, bulleted format with highlighted key information and tools for assessment and standardized treatment. It also serves as an important review for the ONS and HPNA certification exam.

This book focuses on all aspects of cancer pain, including assessment and screening tools, pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic treatment options, current national guidelines for pain management, regional anesthesia techniques, patient-controlled anesthesia, and epidural pain management. It also includes updated information on the effect of opioid polymorphisms, cancer pain emergencies, myofascial pain, and chronic pain in cancer survivors. The book covers palliative care and end-of-life pain management, especially for patients who have symptoms that are not managed. Information on chronic pain conditions such as neuropathic pain in cancer and the use of adjuvant medications for pain control are included, along with special treatment options for addiction and substance abuse in the cancer population. The text additionally provides information on managing pain with difficult-to-treat populations.

Key Features:

  • Provides current, evidence-based information on all aspects of cancer pain management
  • Includes important new guidelines on using a combination of pain management scales for optimal pain assessment and management

Esophageal Cancer: Prevention, Diagnosis and Therapy 1st ed. 2015 Edition

3319200674

[amazon template=iframe image2&asin=3319200674]

This book reviews the recent progress made in the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of esophageal cancer. Epidemiology, molecular biology, pathology, staging, and prognosis are first discussed. The radiologic assessment of esophageal cancer and the role of endoscopy in diagnosis, staging, and management are then described. The principles of surgical resection, radiation therapy, and systemic chemotherapy for esophageal cancer are explained, and particular attention is paid to the multidisciplinary management of early-stage cervical, thoracic, distal, and junctional tumors. Up-to-date information is also provided on the treatment of metastatic and recurrent disease and on approaches that may affect future care, such as chemoprevention.  Esophageal cancer remains one of the least studied cancers although it accounts for more than 400,000 deaths across the globe each year. The majority of esophageal cancers worldwide are squamous cell carcinomas, yet in the past few decades major epidemiologic changes have occurred affecting the incidence of adenocarcinomas in Western countries. Despite the advances in surgical and non-surgical therapies, overall survival has not changed significantly. It is hoped that Esophageal Cancer: Prevention, Diagnosis and Therapy will assist specialists from a variety of disciplines, including surgery, radiation therapy, gastroenterology, and medical oncology, in delivering optimal, up-to-date care to the benefit of patients.
