Tumors of the Esophagus and Stomach

Elizabeth A. Montgomery, Robert D. Odze
e altri

editore: American Registry of Pathology

pagine: 416

Since the publication of the previous edition of Tumors of the Esophagus and Stomach, great advances in many areas of tumor biology have led to a better understanding of the pathogenesis, pathology, and molecular biology of epithelial and stromal malignancies of the upper gastrointestinal tract. Many of these advances have led to specific improvements in diagnosis, prognosis, treatment, and thus, survival in patients affected by these tumors. This edition of the Fascicle was written to highlight these advances, and more specifically, to help pathologists diagnose diseases more accurately and understand how pathology contributes to clinical treatment in the new age of personalized and targeted therapy. Notable advances described in this publication include: 1) expansion of our understanding of the pathologic features and molecular pathogenesis of carcinomas of the esophagus and stomach, most of which develop through a chronic inflammation-metaplasia-dysplasia-carcinoma sequence. Important refinements in the classification of neoplastic precursor lesions have been made since the last AFIP series, including the morphologic and endoscopic subtypes, and this has led to improvements in surgical treatment with a strong trend toward minimization in the form of endoscopic mucosal and submucosal dissections 2) discovery of new diseases, such as gastric adenocarcinoma and proximal polyposis syndrome (GAPPS), a special variant of familial adenomatous polyposis, and significant advances in our knowledge regarding the molecular characterization of genetic polyposis syndromes 3) great expansion in the molecular-pathology correlation, morphologic diversity, classification, and therapeutic options of gastrointestinal stromal tumors (GISTs) 4) reclassification and refinement of prognostic factors related to neuroendocrine tumors 5) improvements in the role of cytology in the diagnosis of tumors of the upper gastrointestinal tract. This book has been written with the pathologist in mind first by using tables that illustrate salient pathologic, molecular, and differential diagnostic features of key entities that are often difficult to distinguish from each other. Specific color photographs of classic tumors and morphologic variants often difficult to recognize are used throughout.

Total, Subtotal and Proximal Gastrectomy in Cancer

A Color Atlas

Walter Siquini

editore: Springer Verlag

pagine: 216

This richly illustrated volume describes the performance of total and subtotal gastrectomy with extended D2 lymphadenectomy by providing a detailed step-by-step guide to both manual and mechanical procedures. Gastric cancer is the fourth most commonly occurring cancer and the second most common cancer-related cause of death worldwide, and surgery remains the only potentially curative treatment. Although several aspects of surgical management are still controversial, all guidelines for the treatment of curable gastric cancer recommend subtotal gastrectomy (for tumors located in the antrum and corpus) or total gastrectomy (for tumors located in the fundus) with extended D2 lymphadenectomy. Various technical tips and secrets are revealed that serve to simplify the procedure and simultaneously make it more effective: by rendering esophagojejunal and gastrojejunal anastomosis more secure, the risk of leakage is minimized. High-quality intraoperative color photographs and drawings covering all steps facilitate understanding of these complex operations and will prove an invaluable tool for surgeons, residents and professionals in the field.

Tumore del colon nell'era delle terapie personalizzate

Massimiliano Berretta

editore: Verduci Editore srl

pagine: 190

Volume grande formato (22 x 30) di 190 pagine, numerose illustrazioni a colori, e rilegato con copertina rigida stampata a colori e plastificata. La presente monografia si prefigge come obiettivo prioritario di mettere a disposizione del lettore, le più recenti conoscenze nel vasto campo pluridisciplinare del carcinoma colorettale, in particolare quelle relative all’epidemiologia, alla genetica, alla chemioprevezione, all’anatomia patologica, alla chirurgia, alla radioterapia, alla chemioterapia, alle terapie biologiche ed alle interazioni varie che si determinano velocemente e che sono in continuo sviluppo. Per l’ampiezza delle problematiche affrontate, la monografia è indirizzata allo studente in medicina che voglia approfondire questo specifico argomento, allo specialista oncologo, al chirurgo, al radioterapista, ma anche all’internista, all’epidemiologo ed al medico di base, cultore dell’argomento. In pochi altri tumori come quelli del colon-retto si sono sviluppate in così poco tempo nuove conoscenze biologiche da una parte e nuove strategie terapeutiche innovative dall’altra. Tutto ciò ha determinato un significativo miglioramento per quanto riguarda la prevenzione, la diagnostica da una parte e le strategie terapeutiche dall’altra (sia nelle fasi iniziali che avanzate della malattia). Infatti, negli ultimi 20-30 anni abbiamo assistito ad una rivoluzione nelle conoscenze sui tumori del grosso intestino, nel campo genetico-molecolare, nella ricerca traslazionale, nella diagnostica per immagini, nell’approccio multimodale e nelle terapie chirurgiche, tant’è, fino agli anni ’80 del secolo scorso una monografia sul carcinoma colorettale avrebbe affrontato quasi esclusivamente le problematiche della chirurgia, ad opera delle innovazioni introdotte da grandi maestri quali Lembert, Miles, Hartman, Goligher, Corman, Valdoni, Knight e Griffen, Heald e Ryall. Oggi il ruolo del chirurgo, benché sempre di primaria importanza, è ricollocato in un ambito multidisciplinare e le decisioni successive all’atto operatorio sono subordinate ad un “team” di esperti, in primo piano l’oncologo, che da angolature diverse valutano il tumore. Questo volume ha anche il pregio di voler sottolineare quanto è complessa ma essenziale l’interazione tra terapie chirurgiche e mediche nell’approccio a questi tumori, anche quando siano in fase metastatica, il che era senza dubbio più difficile da affrontare appena qualche anno fa. Ad esempio, oggi si può arrivare, grazie al supporto della terapia biologica, a rendere operabili pazienti che fino alla fine del secolo scorso sarebbero stati giudicati inoperabili in senso oncologicamente radicale. Sono altresì cadute le barriere discriminanti legate al fattore eta` ed a patologie quali l’infezione da HIV, sicché in queste categorie di pazienti la concomitanza di un carcinoma del colon-retto non è più una controindicazione a trattamenti con finalità curative. Inoltre, va ricordato come altri fattori, quali l’alimentazione e l’attività fisica, giochino un ruolo importante nello scenario di questa importante patologia e su tali fattori bisognerebbe intervenire mediante massicce campagne d’informazione volte ad “educare” la popolazione generale.Non bisogna dimenticare i fattori genetici che frequentemente vengono sottovalutati, tenendo conto che spesso i pazienti che si avvicinano per la prima volta all’oncologo, con una diagnosi di cancro del colon-retto, hanno familiari con lo stesso tipo di tumore e mai indirizzati ad uno screening appropriato. Mentre nel tumore della mammella e nel tumore del collo dell’utero le campagne di prevenzione hanno sensibilizzato la maggioranza della popolazione, per quanto riguarda il cancro del colon-retto in Italia siamo a percentuali inferiori al 10% della popolazione che si sottopone a screening. Fortunatamente abbiamo assistito negli ultimi anni a parecchie iniziative regionali per promuovere lo screening del carcinoma colorettale, ma occorre ancora da fare molto, ed anche in tal senso la nostra monografia vuole offrire un contributo culturale.

Gastric Cancer

Richard M. Gore

editore: Cambridge University Press

pagine: 228

Gastric adenocarcinoma is the second most common cancer worldwide. It is usually diagnosed at a late stage and prognosis is poor; even with modern diagnostic and treatment methods the 5-year survival is only 10%. Improvements in overall patient survival can only be achieved by earlier diagnosis and by tailored therapeutic strategies based on tumor type, location and stage at presentation. This volume provides a state-of-the-art, integrated diagnostic and therapeutic approach to patient management. The role of the upper GI series, endoscopy, endoscopic ultrasound, MDCT, MRI, and PET/CT in the diagnosis, staging and follow-up of patients with gastric cancer is emphasized. The relative strengths and limitations of these diagnostic examinations will be presented in context with the most recent epidemiologic, pathologic, and therapeutic concepts regarding this tumor. With expert contributions from members of an international multidisciplinary team, this is an invaluable guide to the diagnosis and management of gastric malignancies.
