Il mondo delle cure palliative. Manuale per giovani medici

Adriana Turriziani, Giovanni Zaninetta

editore: Esculapio

pagine: 528

Le Cure Palliative sono un ambito della Medicina ormai affermato e riconosciuto nel proprio ruolo, con una significativa diffusione in tutta Italia dei servizi di cure palliative domiciliari e degli hospice. Gli Autori, dopo molti anni di lavoro in questa disciplina, hanno maturato l’esigenza di pubblicare questo libro dedicandolo, in particolare, ai futuri medici affinché, già nel loro percorso verso la laurea, possano prepararsi ad un efficace approccio al dolore e alla sofferenza. Il giovane medico potrà così apprendere che la risposta alla sofferenza è raggiungibile non solo controllando i sintomi ma affrontando i problemi psicologici, sociali e spirituali della persona malata con la collaborazione di un’equipe multiprofessionale e il coinvolgimento ed il sostegno della famiglia del paziente. Troverà nel testo le indicazioni cliniche dei principali sintomi e quadri clinici e le modalità di accompagnamento del morente, fino ad esplorare la natura complessa della sofferenza e a riflettere sulle risposte ai dilemmi etici della fase finale della vita.

TNM Supplement

A Commentary on Uniform Use

a cura di Christian Wittekind, James D. Brierley

editore: WILEY BLACKWELL

pagine: 328

The Union for International Cancer Controls (UICC) TNM classification system is the most widely used cancer classification and staging system in the world. It is used to describe the anatomical extent of disease and it is essential to patient care, research and cancer control. This fifth edition of the TNM Supplement: A Commentary of Uniform Use offers practitioners a wealth of material intended to complement the systems day-to-day use. The volume features: Updated definitions of terms used in cancer staging. New sections on carcinomas of the thymus, sarcomas of the spine and pelvis and soft tissue sarcomas of the head and neck, and comprehensive updates to the head and neck carcinomas, carcinomas of the lung and neuroendocrine tumours sections. Frequently asked questions from the UICC helpdesk. The Supplement may be treated as a companion text to the recent eighth edition of the TNM Classification of Malignant Tumours (978-1-119-26357-9), supporting the correct and uniform application of the TNM classification system. The TNM Supplement can also be utilised as a standalone book, providing explanations and examples to answer many questions that arise during the daily use of the TNM cancer classification and staging system, particularly in unusual cases.

Tumors of the Uterine Corpus and Trophoblastic Diseases

Esther Oliva

editore: American Registry of Pathology

pagine: 532

Since the publication of the Third Series Fascicle of the Uterine Corpus nearly thirty years ago, molecular discoveries have deepened our understanding of epithelial, mesenchymal, and mixed mullerian tumors of the uterus, fueling a new and still evolving classification of the different categories of uterine neoplasms. Enormous insights have been made to refine the classification of the different subtypes of endometrial carcinoma linked to important prognostic and therapeutic implications. At the same time, molecular findings have allowed for the discovery of familial syndromes associated with uterine corpus neoplasms, and identification of patients at increased risk for developing specific tumors, with the subsequent implementation of genetic counseling and appropriate treatment guidelines. Molecular underpinnings have also assisted in the development of new and potentially more predictive morphologic criteria for endometrial preneoplasia, namely the endometrial intraepithelial neoplasia (or EIN) system. In this Uterine Corpus Fascicle, there is an increased emphasis on the cytopathologic (intraoperative, exfoliative, or fine needle aspiration) and molecular features that are important in diagnosis and prognosis. What does not change from the three previous series, however, is the goal of providing the reader with thorough, concise, and up-to-date information on the nomenclature and classification; epidemiologic, clinical, and pathogenetic features; and, most importantly, guidance in the diagnosis of the tumors and tumorlike lesions of all major organ systems and body sites. Order the Tumors of the Uterine Corpus and Trophoblastic Diseases now to take advantage of these new discoveries and techniques for diagnosing and treating these types of tumors.
