Surgical Management of Aortic Pathology
This book follows the concept of perceiving the entire aorta as one functional organ assuming that all individual pathologies and local interventional procedures affect the up- and downstream segments with consequences for complications and disease progression. Thus any preventive or surgical strategy must recognize the aortic disease in its entirety.
The book intends to cover the full spectrum of aortic pathologies, mechanisms and functional interplay. The latest available diagnostic tools and options for surgical treatment are presented by the foremost experts in their field in state-of-the-art reviews. The reader is provided with the most current and comprehensive insight into all fundamental and clinical aspects of aortic disease. All chapters are carefully complemented with figures and illustrations.

Practical Breast Pathology: Frequently Asked Questions
This comprehensive volume reviews current topics and controversies in diagnostic breast pathology, and addresses frequently encountered diagnostic problems using a question and answer format and case presentations. Emphasis is placed on the diagnostic approach as it relates to morphology, clinical and radiographic correlation, differential diagnosis, and ancillary testing including immunohistochemical and molecular analyses. Answers are provided and serve as a practical, evidence-based, and problem solving guide to diagnostic issues having significant impacts on clinical management.
Common but diagnostically challenging entities such as papillary lesions and fibroepithelial lesions are discussed in detail, as well as special types of breast cancer including solid papillary carcinoma, lobular lesions and its variants. Uncommon breast lesions such as mesenchymal, lymphoid, and metastatic lesions are also covered. Chapters discuss genetic alterations and molecular abnormalities in breast cancer, and commonly encountered interpretation dilemmas on immunohistochemistry in breast cancer and metastatic cancer to the breast with a focus on prognostic and predictive tumor biomarkers.
Textbook of Head and Neck Pathology: Volume 2: Mouth, Oropharynx, and Larynx
The second of a four-volume set, this book covers oral cavity and oropharynx pathology. It’s goal is to become a “go-to” sign-out resource for head and neck pathology, incorporating anatomy, staging, diagnostic, and prognostic information. This richly illustrated volume has a bullet point format, where appropriate, allowing information to be easily located.
This book is aimed at trainee and practicing pathologists in the USA and worldwide, and is also of interest to oral pathologists and oral pathology trainees.
Atlas of Pulmonary Cytopathology
Atlas of Pulmonary Cytopathology With Histopathologic Correlations offers concrete diagnostic guidance for anatomic pathologists to accurately identify pulmonary disease using exfoliative and fine needle aspiration techniques. It not only illustrates the classic cytomorphology of common lung lesions, but also presents and contrasts important problem areas that can lead to erroneous interpretation. Clearly and concisely written by leaders in the field, this volume is a practical desk reference for all facets of the diagnostically challenging areas of pulmonary cytopathology.
The Atlas features more than 500 carefully selected high-resolution images detailing important aspects of the full range of lung diseases and conditions including infections, reactive lesions, benign neoplasms, and malignant tumors such as adenocarcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, neuroendocrine tumors, malignant mesothelioma, and metastatic tumors. Additionally, the book contains images of the histopathology and gross characteristics of certain lesions to provide morphologic correlations that will be relevant to cytopathologists and surgical pathologists alike. To provide a broader, more enriching perspective, the Atlas features a special chapter on the radiologic characteristics of lung lesions to provide a differential diagnosis through the eyes of an experienced radiologist. This multidisciplinary approach enhances the reader’s understanding of how cytopathology, histopathology, and radiologic information together create a powerful tool for understanding the neoplastic, reactive, and infectious disease of the lower respiratory tract.
Molecular Diagnostics in Cytopathology: A Practical Handbook for the Practicing Pathologist
Molecular diagnostics are increasingly used to help guide targeted therapy in solid organ tumors and hematologic malignancies. A large proportion of molecular testing is performed on limited-volume samples obtained via minimally invasive techniques, such as fine needle aspiration. Increasingly, cytopathologists play an essential role in this process, both in the triage of specimens during rapid on-site evaluation and in the evaluation of archival samples to determine suitability for ancillary testing. Therefore, it is imperative that practicing cytopathologists stay abreast of up-to-date diagnostic, prognostic, and predictive ancillary tests that can be used on limited cytologic material. This is a challenge since the landscape of known genomic alterations is constantly evolving and the subsequent set of testing options is ever expanding.
The proposed text will provide a user-friendly quick-reference handbook to serve as a useful resource for practicing pathologists and laboratory personnel dealing with, and interested in, this evolving field of molecular cytopathology. Essential components to be presented include: 1) pre-analytic factors that affect sample selection and evaluation; 2) specimen preparation to maximize confidence in results; 3) interpretation of results; 4) potential limitations; and 5) workflow algorithms. In addition, specific disease specific molecular testing details will be outlined to provide the reader with resources for quick reference. All chapters will be written by experts in their fields and will include the most up-to-date scientific and clinical information.
Molecular Diagnostics in Cytopathology will be of value to Cytopathologists, Cytotechnologists, Cytotechnology students, Cytopathology fellows, Surgical pathologists, Pathology residents and fellows, Molecular Pathologists, Molecular pathology fellows, Molecular technologists, as well as Translational researchers with an interest in molecular cytopathology.
Bone Marrow Pathology 4th Edition
Bone Marrow Pathology has been extensively revised to reflect the significant advances which have occurred in the application of cytogenetics and in particular, molecular genetics in the diagnosis, classification and understanding of haematological disorders. This comprehensive book not only provides information on all common disease entities, but also covers rare disorders in which bone marrow examination is useful. It is designed as practical resource with ‘Problems and Pitfalls’ sections throughout to aid laboratory diagnosis.
This fourth edition:
- Incorporates the recommendations of the 2008 WHO Classification of Tumours of Haematopoietic and Lymphoid Tissues
- Covers key diagnostic techniques such as flow cytometric immunophenotyping, immunohistochemistry and cytogenetic and molecular genetic analysis
- Includes new diagnostic algorithms and summary boxes
- Contains 550 colour illustrations including high-quality digital photomicrographs

The book then goes on to describe specific disorders of the ovary, fallopian tube and peritoneum in detail, and finishes with a chapter on specimen cut-up.
Pathology of the Ovary, Fallopian Tube and Peritoneum has been written to be useful diagnostically to general as well as specialist gynecological histopathologists and pathologists in training. Gynecologists, oncologists, genitourinary physicians and cancer nurse specialists will find expert insights here that will help in treatment and counselling of their patients.
