Non c'è un perché. Ammalarsi di tumore in adolescenza

Andrea Ferrari

editore: Franco Angeli

pagine: 264

Non c'è un perché se ci si ammala di cancro mentre si va alle superiori. Non c'è un perché, ma succede. E ragazzi in attesa, magari, di un bacio, si trovano in sala d'attesa, nell'ambulatorio di oncologia, per sostituire gli esami di scuola con gli esami del sangue. In attesa del loro primo ciclo di chemioterapia. Gli adolescenti si ammalano di cancro. E sono pazienti speciali. E hanno bisogno di posti speciali, dove essere curati al meglio. Luoghi dove ci sia posto per il significato dell'esistere, l'amore, il sesso, il desiderio di rivolta, la paura della morte, la voglia di avere un destino ed esserne padroni. Luoghi dove ci si possa anche muovere con leggerezza, tra esperienze che leggere non possono proprio essere. Muoversi con speranza. Perché quando c'è spazio per i colori, per pensare alle cose belle, c'è spazio per la speranza. C'è spazio per la normalità della vita. Questo libro ci racconta tutto questo: ci racconta di aspetti clinici - gli adolescenti malati spesso sono curati fuori dai centri di riferimento, fuori dai protocolli, con il risultato di avere meno probabilità di guarigione rispetto ai bambini con le stesse malattie - e ci racconta cosa succede nella testa di un ragazzo quando si sente dire "hai un tumore maligno". Ce lo racconta attraverso le loro storie. Le storie dei ragazzi del Progetto Giovani dell'Istituto dei Tumori di Milano. Le parole dei loro medici - i progetti pensati per loro, i nuovi modelli di cura - e le loro parole, tenere e forti e coraggiose. Sono i ragazzi stessi a dirci, in questo libro, che ci si può ammalare di tumore anche nell'età dell'adolescenza; che si può guarire; ma solo se si riesce a ricevere le cure giuste, nei tempi giusti, nei posti giusti, pensati per loro.

e altri

editore: Springer International Publishing AG

pagine: 948

This book, written by experts from across the world, provides a comprehensive, up-to-date overview covering all aspects of posterior fossa neoplasms in pediatric patients, including medulloblastoma, ependymoma, cerebellar astrocytoma, atypical teratoid/rhabdoid tumor, chordoma, brain stem tumors, and rarer entities. For each tumor type, individual chapters are devoted to genetics, radiological evaluation using advanced imaging techniques, surgery, pathology, oncology, and radiation treatment. In addition, a separate section describes the various surgical approaches that may be adopted and offers guidance on the treatment of hydrocephalus and the role of intraoperative mapping and monitoring. Useful information is also provided on anatomy, clinical presentation, neurological evaluation, and molecular biology. The book closes by discussing in detail immediate postoperative care, the management of surgical complications, and longer-term rehabilitation and support. Posterior fossa tumors are the most common pediatric brain tumors but are often difficult to treat owing to their proximity to critical brain structures and their tendency to cause marked intracranial hypertension. Practitioners of all levels of experience will find Posterior Fossa Tumors in Children to be a richly illustrated, state of the art guide to the management of these tumors that will serve as an ideal reference in clinical practice.

I tumori cerebrali infantili: relazioni di cura

Rosapia L. Grotta, Massimo Papini
e altri

editore: Maggioli Editore

pagine: 118

I tumori cerebrali infantili sono forme eterogenee, a prognosi incerta e ad altissima complessità assistenziale. La presa in carico dei piccoli pazienti costituisce una sfida formidabile per l'équipe curante, non solo sul piano tecnico ma per le delicatissime implicazioni relazionali che l'iter terapeutico comporta. Le famiglie necessitano di essere costantemente assistite e di trovare un valido punto di riferimento nello staff per poter sostenere il proprio figlio nel percorso di malattia; gli operatori hanno bisogno di una interlocuzione affidabile e sincera con i genitori per affrontare scelte terapeutiche difficili, con implicazioni talvolta definitive. Nel tentativo di comprendere quali siano i fattori che facilitano e sostengono lo sforzo comune dello staff e dei familiari e quali le maggiori difficoltà, utilizzando un approccio fenomenologico-ermeneutico, sono state raccolte le testimonianze di un gruppo di genitori e degli operatori dell'Unità di Neurochirurgia dell'Ospedale Pediatrico Meyer di Firenze, che costituisce un punto di riferimento nazionale ed internazionale per la presa in carico di questi minori. Il volume, che presenta i fondamenti metodologici e i risultati della ricerca, si presta ad essere utilizzato come strumento per la formazione di studenti, operatori e volontari dell'ambito socio-sanitario.

Musicoterapia in onco-ematologia pediatrica. Metodologia di lavoro e valutazione dei risultati

Lorenzo Capolsini, Mariolina Rossi

editore: Cittadella

All'interno di un reparto di pediatria oncologica si genera una realtà complessa, carica di esperienze forti legate allo sviluppo della malattia e, ancor più, all'età del paziente. Con rigore metodologico, in questi quattro anni ci siamo chiesti: come si può lavorare con la musicoterapia in un processo di cura caratterizzato da tante criticità? E quale metodo è opportuno seguire in questo contesto? Presto ci siamo resi conto che l'incertezza del decorso clinico arrivava a mettere a dura prova la stabilità emotiva anche di noi musicoterapisti e degli altri operatori e condizionava perfino la possibilità di un percorso/progetto terapeutico. Tutto ci portava inevitabilmente a riflettere non solo sulla validità della metodologia ma anche sulle risposte esistenziali da dare quando ci si interroga sul significato della vita in situazioni così delicate ed estreme.

Psiconcologia dell'età evolutiva. La psicologia nelle cure dei bambini malati di cancro

Angela Guarino

editore: Centro Studi Erickson

pagine: 387

Trent'anni fa guarire dal cancro era destino di pochi bambini. Oggi, sei su dieci riescono a guarire definitivamente, diventano adulti, si sposano, possono avere dei figli. Una media che nasconde gli ancora insufficienti risultati ottenuti con malattie rimaste ingovernabili, ma anche la quasi totalità dei successi nei casi di forme meno aggressive. Scenario in evoluzione, che obbliga le frontiere della psicologia a evolversi altrettanto rapidamente. Tanti gli operatori coinvolti nella "presa in carico" del bambino oncologico: un team multidisciplinare complesso, immerso in una faticosa routine assistenziale. Gli interventi psiconcologici riguardano perciò bambini e famiglie, ma anche operatori del team. Questo volume esplora tale complessità in ogni ambito psicologico: coping, dolore, governo dei sintomi, compliance, effetti psicologici di malattie e terapie sullo sviluppo evolutivo, resilienza, relazione tra fratelli e genitori, interventi distrazionali e psicoterapeutici, qualità della vita, scuola, cure palliative, lutto. L'autrice definisce con attenzione le aree di intervento e ricerca, discutendone teoria e metodi, rivedendo criticamente e integrando risultati consolidati con quanto è ancora discusso o non risolto.
