Head and Neck Cancer Recurrence: Evidence-based, Multidisciplinary Management

Hisham M. Mehanna, K. Kian Ang

editore: Thieme Publishing Group

pagine: 316

Despite significant progress in the treatment of head and neck cancer using new techniques, including organ preservation strategies, recurrence still occurs in up to 50% of patients with locally advanced disease. Head and Neck Cancer Recurrence is the first comprehensive, evidence-based reference on this complex condition, providing state-of-the-art strategies for treating and managing recurrence at each site within the head and neck. With this book at hand, specialists will have guidelines for detecting the presence of a tumor, evaluating the extent and likelihood of successful salvage, determining the most effective treatment modalities, and assessing the potential impact on outcome and function. Special features:* Brings together all the current evidence and expertise on the epidemiology, risk factors, clinical and imaging evaluation, and management of recurrent head and neck cancer tumors* Includes both curative and palliative approaches, and discusses surgical, radiotherapeutic, and chemotherapeutic strategic options* Contains substantial contributions by specialists in speech and language therapy, palliative care, psychology, epidemiology, and clinical cancer nursing to provide a holistic, multidisciplinary approach to the management of recurrence of head and neck cancers* Brings the decision-making process to life with illustrative case studies that contain patient histories, clinical findings, treatment planning, and documented results The combination of the most recent clinical advances with the latest thinking in the field makes this book an essential resource for all head and neck surgeons, clinical oncologists, radiation oncologists, nurse practitioners, allied health professionals and senior trainees working to improve patient management and outcomes in this challenging arena.

Radiotherapy for Head and Neck Cancers

Indications and Techniques

Adam S. Garden, K. Kian Ang

editore: Lippincott Williams and Wilkins

pagine: 304

Long established as a staple reference for all radiation oncologists, "Radiotherapy for Head and Neck Cancers: Indications and Techniques" is now in its fourth edition. This completely updated edition presents the state-of-the-art protocols currently used at the MD Anderson Cancer Center and thoroughly explains the principles, nomenclature, and clinical use of intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT). The first section discusses the practical aspects of external beam therapy, brachytherapy, and endocavitary beam therapy and offers guidelines on patient care before and during radiotherapy. The second section provides detailed coverage of site-specific indications and techniques.

Radiation Oncology

Rationale, Technique, Results

James D. Cox, Kie Kian Ang

editore: Mosby

pagine: 1088

"Radiation Oncology: Rationale, Technique, Results", by James D. Cox, MD and K. Kian Ang, MD, PhD, provides you with authoritative guidance on the latest methods for using radiotherapy to treat patients with cancer. Progressing from fundamental principles through specific treatment strategies for the cancers of each organ system, it also addresses the effects of radiation on normal structures and the avoidance of complications. This 9th edition covers the most recent indications and techniques in the field, including new developments in proton therapy and intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT). It also features, for the first time, full-color images throughout the text to match those that you see in practice, and uses new color-coded treatment plans to make targets, structures, and doses easier to read at a glance. Evidence from randomized clinical trials is included whenever possible to validate clinical recommendations. The state-of-the-art coverage inside this trusted resource equips you to target cancer as effectively as possible while minimizing harm to healthy tissue.

Modification of Radiation Response

Cytokines, Growth Factors and Other Biological Targets

Carsten Nieder, K. Kian Ang
e altri

editore: Springer-Verlag Berlin and Heidelberg GmbH & Co. K

pagine: 294

This book describes and summarizes the radiation responses of both normal and neoplastic tissues with a focus on rational strategies for the modification of these responses. Emerging data from molecular oncology and radiobiology that form the basis for a better understanding of radiation-induced reactions and key features of malignant growth are reviewed in depth. The book covers not only general principles of radiation-induced reactions but also a large number of preclinical and clinical data that will guide the reader through this complex and dynamic field and will provide valuable information for the development of further research projects. Many of the data reviewed in this book form a sound basis for further improvement of state-of-the art radiation therapy by integrating biological information into the process of treatment planning and delivery.
