Diagnosis, Treatment, and Outcome

Joung H. Lee

editore: Springer London Ltd

pagine: 662

The overall incidence of meningiomas, particularly in the developed countries, is rising due to a growing size of the aging population, with people living longer and enjoying healthier lives than ever before. Additionally, an increased utilization of imaging studies such as computer tomography (CT) and magnetic resonance (MR) for routine evaluation of closed head injuries, paranasal sinus problems and various non-specific neurological symptoms, ranging from headaches to dizziness, has contributed to enhanced detection of incidental meningiomas. The book contains the most up-to-date information in all matters related to meningiomas, and is written by multiple contributors - internationally recognized experts in their respective fields from Asia, USA and Europe. This is an essential reference guide to neurosurgeons and neurologists (in training and in practice), as well as medical libraries, throughout the world.

Head and Neck

Margaret Brandwein-Gensler

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 646

Much of the diversity of head and neck diseases is due to the large number and broad function of the organs within this region. The surgical pathologist must become proficient in this subspecialty area in order to identify and categorize many different subtypes of lesions and diseases, including those affecting the thyroid and salivary glands. This book from the Cambridge Illustrated Surgical Pathology series comprehensively covers all of the methods utilized by pathologists to accurately diagnose diseases affecting all organs in the head and neck region. Coverage is not limited to findings from the light microscope but also includes other genetic, molecular, and immunologic diagnostic modalities, and the unique orientation allows the reader to follow the progression of disease states from incipient to advanced. This book is illustrated with more than 300 color photomicrographs and accompanied by a CD-ROM of all images in downloadable format.

Brain Tumors

Bette K. Kleinschmidt-DeMaster, David E. Elder
e altri

editore: Demos Medical Publishing

pagine: 256

"The Consultant Pathology" series is designed to disseminate the knowledge of expert surgical pathology consultants in the analysis and diagnosis of difficult cases to the full community of pathology practitioners. The volumes are based on actual consultations and presented in a format that illustrates the expert's process of evaluating the case, including indications for consultation, the consultant's findings and comment, and discussion of the entity that amplifies the case description. Each volume in the "Consultant Pathology" series is authored by international experts with extensive case experience in the areas covered. Surgical neuropathology is a challenging arena for many pathologists, due in large part to a relative lack of experience of most pathologists in this area compared to other areas of surgical pathology. "Consultant Pathology: Brain Tumors" is intended to address this need with cases drawn from the surgical neuropathology practices of the authors. This volume provides examples of over 100 brain tumors, running the gamut from the very common to the rare. Each example is presented in a case based format and the wide variety of cases presented covers the entire scope of brain tumors and offers the opportunity to review both the basics for the beginner or relatively inexperienced pathologist and also offers experienced pathologists the chance to see some of the rare entities. Each case is formatted as if it were a consult case and includes a brief clinical history, description of the pathologic findings with numerous illustrations, the line diagnosis, discussion of the entity, and the diagnostic thought process as well pertinent references for further reading. When relevant, current practical applications of immunohistochemistry and molecular pathology are discussed.

Complicanze neurologiche nel paziente oncologico

Elisa Trevisan, RIccardo Soffietti

editore: SEEd

pagine: 120

Le complicanze neurologiche nel malato oncologico sono relativamente frequenti, compaiono maggiormente nella fase avanzata di malattia e possono avere un impatto negativo sulla qualità di vita del paziente. Alcune di queste complicanze sono curabili, con conseguente miglioramento dei sintomi in un malato spesso già pesantemente compromesso, e quindi vanno identificate e trattate il prima possibile. Rivolto principalmente agli oncologi, ai neurologi e ai medici di famiglia, il testo esamina le complicanze legate in modo diretto o indiretto alla malattia tumorale o derivanti dai trattamenti e rappresenta un utile strumento per la gestione del malato oncologico, in tutte le fasi della malattia: diagnostica, di cure attive e di cure palliative.

Squamous Cell Cancer of the Neck

Robert Hermans

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 164

Imaging studies provide crucial information on disease extent in head and neck malignancies. A thorough knowledge of the loco-regional anatomy of this complex area and a proper understanding of the natural disease spread pattern are prerequisites in the interpretation of these imaging studies. Tumor extent influences tumor staging, predicts outcome and influences treatment choices. Knowledge of the different treatment options and expected post-therapeutic tissue changes are also critical in order to use imaging adequately in the surveillance of these patients. After an introductory chapter on epidemiology and clinical signs, this book reviews the pertinent imaging findings for each of the major anatomical subsites. Emphasis is on CT and MRI, but PET and ultrasound are also discussed where appropriate. Reviews on modern surgical and radiotherapeutic techniques are included, helping the reader to understand post-treatment tissue changes and how to differentiate these from tumor recurrence or treatment complications.

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.
