The Washington Manual of Cardio-Oncology

A Practical Guide for Improved Cancer Survivorship

a cura di Daniel J. Lenihan, Kathleen W. Zhang

editore: Wolters Kluwer

pagine: 360

Written by experts in cardiovascular disease, hematology, and oncology, The Washington Manual® of Cardio-Oncology: A Practical Guide for Improved Cancer Survivorship is a clinically relevant, easy-to-use primer on the detection, management, and improved cardiovascular-based patient outcomes in adults undergoing treatment for cancer or who have previously survived cancer therapy. Edited by Drs. Daniel J. Lenihan, Joshua D. Mitchell, and Kathleen W. Zhang, this concise yet comprehensive manual provides high-yield information that reflects today’s advances in risk stratification, early diagnosis, and treatment of cardiovascular disease—all in an easy-access, concisely bulleted format for on-the-go reference. Discusses the multitude of complex adverse effects of chemotherapy, targeted therapy, immunotherapy, and radiation therapy to help optimize quality of life and prolong survival in this vulnerable patient population. Includes chapters on how cancer therapy affects the myocardium, valves, pericardium and cardiac electrical system including handy reference tables on typical side effects of commonly used cancer therapies. Provides practical guidance in an easy-to-follow format that covers definition, associated drugs/therapies, epidemiology, diagnosis (history, physical exam, and diagnostic testing), treatment, and outcome/prognosis. Covers the role of non-invasive imaging modalities in the diagnosis and screening for cardiovascular disease including echocardiography, MRI, and nuclear imaging. Addresses frequently encountered clinical scenarios such as preoperative or pre-high-risk treatment evaluation with up-to-date expert consensus recommendations. Details emerging treatments and optimal use of non-invasive imaging in cardiac amyloidosis. Features easy-to-use flow-charts and tables that aid in the differentiation of cardiac masses.

The treatment of melanoma

Paolo Antonio Ascierto

editore: Minerva Medica

pagine: 272

This book provides an overview of melanoma skin cancer and illustrates the most recent advances in the field of its clinical management. Today, thanks to new treatments like targeted therapies and immunotherapies, about 50% of metastatic patients can be cured and healed. Moreover, recently, such treatments have proven effective in the adjuvant setting by reducing the risk of disease progression and the mortality rate by 30-40%. Melanoma management represents a model for immuno-oncology, and starting from the experiences made in this field, today immune checkpoint inhibitors can also be successfully used to treat other neoplasms. However, in spite of the good results achieved, mortality rates are still high. For this reason, we still need to gain a better understanding of the mechanisms underlying primary and acquired resistance, and to find ways to extend the long-term benefits that have been recently achieved in resistant patients.

Manuale di oncologia medica

COMU. Collegio degli Oncologi Medici Italiani

editore: Minerva Medica

pagine: 432

Il rapido progresso delle conoscenze sia in campo diagnostico che terapeutico ha reso opportuna una nuova edizione del manuale. Gli Autori lo hanno preparato con piacere constatando la favorevole accoglienza riservata alla I edizione. In questo manuale lo studente troverà principi generali di storia naturale, diagnosi e terapia delle principali neoplasie. L’oncologia è sicuramente la branca della medicina che maggiormente si giova di un approccio multidisciplinare. La complessità dei processi diagnostici, la difficoltà della scelta della terapia più appropriata e, non ultimo, la gestione della tossicità obbligano l’oncologo medico (e qualunque specialista che si trovi di fronte un paziente neoplastico) ad un confronto con i colleghi di altre specialità. Gli Autori sperano con questo manuale di trasmettere agli studenti in Medicina quelle informazioni che consentiranno loro, qualunque sia la branca specialistica in cui saranno impegnati, di poter colloquiare con gli altri specialisti per garantire un corretto percorso diagnostico terapeutico al paziente oncologico.
