Breast Surgery

A Companion to Specialist Surgical Practice

J Michael Dixon, Matthew D. Barber

editore: ELSEVIER HEALTH SCIENCES

pagine: 290

Breast Surgery meets the needs of surgeons in higher training and practising consultants for a contemporary and evidence-based account of this sub-specialty that is relevant to their general surgical practice. It is a practical reference source incorporating the most current information on recent developments, management issues and operative procedures. The text is thoroughly referenced and supported by evidence-based recommendations wherever possible, distinguishing between strong evidence to support a conclusion, and evidence suggesting that a recommendation can be reached on the balance of probabilities. For this Sixth Edition the authorship team across the series has been expanded to include additional European and World experts, with an increased emphasis on global practice. Throughout all six volumes the contents have been extensively revised in line with recently published evidence. Detailed supportive key references are provided and are also included within the comprehensive list of references in the accompanying ebook. Links to recommended online videos have been added where appropriate. The Companion to Specialist Surgical Practice series provides a current and concise summary of the key topics within the major sub-specialties of general surgery. Each volume highlights evidence-based practice both in the text and within the extensive list of references at the end of every chapter. This new edition of Breast Surgery has a revised structure that better reflects the patient pathway through the breast service. New authors have brought new insights into rapidly evolving areas including more sophisticated breast assessment, the increasing options for breast conservation using oncoplastic techniques, and primary medical therapy. An emphasis on patient assessment and surgical techniques are the cornerstone of this revised edition.

The Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology

Definitions, Criteria, and Explanatory Notes

Edmund S. Cibas, Syed Z. Ali

editore: Springer International Publishing AG

pagine: 236

The first edition of The Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology was published in 2010 and has greatly influenced the practice of thyroid cytopathology. The terminology proposed and illustrated in this text has been widely adopted not only in the U.S. but also abroad. It has become an essential text for pathology trainees and practicing pathologists examining thyroid fine needle aspiration (FNA) specimens. Since 2010, there have been a number of important advances in the management of patients with nodular thyroid disease and in the understanding of the biology of thyroid cancer. This new edition includes these advances that impact terminology for reporting thyroid cytopathology. In particular, it incorporates a discussion of the recently implemented and now widespread use of molecular testing of thyroid FNA samples, which has transformed the management of patients with nodular thyroid disease in the U.S.. In addition, this edition accommodates the recent changes to the classification of thyroid cancer, most notably the introduction of a new thyroid diagnosis, that of "non-invasive follicular tumor with papillary-like nuclear features (NIFTP)". Thoroughly revised and updated, The Bethesda System for Reporting Thyroid Cytopathology, Second Edition will provide the reader with a unified approach to diagnosing and reporting thyroid FNA interpretations. It serves as a reference guide not just for pathologists, but also endocrinologists, surgeons, and radiologists.

From Observation to Theory and Back

Irina Kareva

editore: Academic Press Inc

pagine: 118

Bersaglio mobile. Il ruolo del sistema immunitario nella lotta al cancro

Alberto Mantovani

editore: Mondadori

pagine: 144

Nell'immaginario collettivo e nel vissuto di molti, nonostante i progressi della ricerca medica, grazie ai quali sta diventando sempre più curabile, il cancro continua a fare paura. Tanto da essere spesso definito il male del secolo, se non del millennio. E bastano pochi numeri a spiegare perché: solo in Italia, 500 morti e 1000 nuovi casi ogni giorno, più o meno equamente divisi tra uomini e donne, e degli attuali circa 3 milioni di pazienti affetti da cancro, circa il 60% sopravvive a cinque anni dalla diagnosi. Ma cos'è un tumore e come si forma? Perché ci ammaliamo? Quali sono le terapie più efficaci nella lotta contro una malattia estremamente difficile da contrastare perché, come un bersaglio mobile, evolve e si trasforma per resistere alle terapie? E quali sono le nuove frontiere della ricerca oncologica? Attraverso storie di vita ed esperienze di laboratorio, Alberto Mantovani racconta il complesso mondo del cancro e le varie fasi della guerra condotta da secoli dalla medicina per debellarlo, una straordinaria avventura fatta di alti e bassi, di successi e momenti bui, ma caratterizzata da costanti progressi nella conoscenza, nella diagnosi e nella terapia. In questo scenario, agli approcci di cura tradizionali come la chirurgia, la radioterapia, la chemioterapia e le terapie mirate, che pure hanno dato notevoli risultati, si affianca oggi l'immunoterapia. Sono infatti numerose le armi del sistema immunitario (come gli anticorpi, i vaccini e le cellule stesse dell'immunità) usate con successo nella lotta al cancro e nella prevenzione, tanto che l'immunoterapia sta cambiando e sempre più cambierà la storia naturale di molti tipi di tumore. Coronando così il sogno dei padri della medicina d'inizio Novecento di sconfiggere il cancro utilizzando le nostre difese naturali. Ma se l'obiettivo dichiarato dell'autore è condividere le sue conoscenze su un argomento di così ampio interesse, la sua «ambiziosa speranza» è quella di «riuscire a fornire al lettore gli strumenti per "autoimmunizzarsi" nei confronti di tutte quelle "fake news" che riguardano cure o tecniche di prevenzione del cancro tanto miracolose quanto prive di ogni fondamento scientifico. E che, travestite da false speranze, creano solo amare illusioni».

Cutaneous Malignancies

A Surgical Perspective

Brian Gastman

editore: Thieme Medical Publishers Inc

pagine: 272

The treatment of skin cancer has become an increasingly multispecialty practice. Ongoing surgical and postsurgical advances and emergent factors that predispose patients to these tumors have changed the treatment paradigm. Having a keen understanding of diagnostic, surgical, and nonsurgical treatment options is key to identifying, treating, or referring patients with potential cutaneous malignancies. While Brian R. Gastman's Cutaneous Malignancies: A Surgical Perspective is the first of its kind to emphasize surgical management of skin cancer, several sections are devoted to systemic nonsurgical therapies affecting patient care and surgical intervention. Topics encompassed include prevention, diagnosis, medication management, appropriate margin size, reconstruction methods, and the importance of stellar dermatopathology. Key Highlights The role of Mohs micrographic surgery and radiation in skin cancer treatment Treatment approaches for the two most common forms of skin cancer respectively, basal cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma Surgical treatment of cutaneous malignant melanoma and other high-risk malignancies Clinical insights on completion lymphadenectomy and sentinel node biopsy for melanoma, two topics rarely addressed in context with skin cancer Diagnosis and treatment of rare malignancies including Merkel cell carcinoma, dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, cutaneous angiosarcoma, and cutaneous leiomyosarcoma More than 400 high-quality illustrations further delineate surgical modalities Edited by an esteemed dual board certified plastic surgeon and otolaryngologist, this definitive book is the most complete guide to surgical management of skin cancer.
