Principles Of Neuro-oncology

Cancer of the Nervous System

David Schiff

editore: McGraw-Hill Medical

pagine: 832

The only book to provide comprehensive coverage of all the clinical management strategies of tumors afflicting the nervous system! Provides the best and most logical synthesis between clinical information and the molecular and basic science principles of these diseases. With a strong focus on radiation therapy, this text features management guidelines for treatment, including dosages and preferred combination of chemotherapeutic drugs as well as coverage of patient follow-up care. Brain tumors account in proportional terms for the highest level of mortality amongst cancer patients. Their incidence is also markedly on the rise, and now represents the most common solid tumor in children. As it is the only organ system without an inherent lymphatic system to protect against disease, the brain and peripheral nerves are also more susceptible to the spread of cancer from other regions of the body than any other organ. Once considered a veritable death sentence, the diagnosis of a CNS tumor is now conveyed along with measured optimism and a wide array of prospective strategies for its clinical management. Treatment of these tumors had always traditionally been the exclusive domain of the neurosurgeon, but now with the advent of many effective chemo- and radiotherapeutic regimens, this discipline has become as multi-modality oriented as many others in the field of oncology. Schiff's Principles of Neuro-Oncology will provide comprehensive coverage of all the clinical management strategies employable for the diagnosis and treatment of tumors that afflict the nervous system.
