The unique anatomy of the perioral region makes tumor ablation and surgical reconstruction particularly complex. This practical handbook presents the most important procedures in oral cancer surgery in a concise and highly visual manner, providing a solid repertoire of basic surgical techniques for handling almost any case and achieving the best possible results. Key features: * Comprehensive coverage of all the most important surgical approaches for managing and treating oral cancer* Practical systematic guide encompassing every step of the operative procedure including tracheotomy techniques, lymph node management, tumor ablation, and reconstruction* Enhanced with more than 200 full-color intraoperative photographs and diagrams to illustrate each step of the surgical process* Includes important tips and tricks for anticipating and avoiding potential problems during surgery This book is an essential reference for all young surgeons wanting to review the surgical principals, anatomy, and techniques that form the basis of oral cancer therapy.

The American Cancer Society recently estimated that about 45,000 new cases of thyroid cancer will be diagnosed in the United States, with three-quarters occurring in women. The overall 5-year survival rate is about 97 per cent, making it one of the least lethal cancers. We are experiencing an epidemic of well-differentiated thyroid cancer, in part due to the widespread use of imaging modalities that detect thyroid nodules and microcarcinomas. Concurrently, there have been a number of recent advances in surgical treatment, as well as diagnostic modalities that allow us to detect small amounts of residual local and metastatic disease. Additionally, a reexamination of past treatment regimens has led to new recommendations regarding the use of radioactive iodine, and to new therapeutic options, such as targeted therapy which have supplanted the use of more toxic chemotherapy for metastatic cancer. Multiple academic organizations have developed consensus guidelines for the management of thyroid cancer, occasionally with conflicting recommendations. In "Thyroid Cancer", a renowned group of authors presents a broad overview of the pathology, pathophysiology, diagnosis, and management of thyroid cancer, with an emphasis on recent evidence-based information. State-of-the-art and a significant contribution to the literature, "Thyroid Cancer" is an invaluable reference for endocrinologists, oncologists, nuclear medicine physicians, radiation oncologists, primary care physicians, and surgeons who deal with head and neck cancer.

There has been an increase in oral cancer, related to the increase in consumption of tobacco, alcohol and other carcinogenic products. There has also been a significant reduction in mortality due to increasing awareness, early diagnosis and advances in treatments. The achievements made in reconstructive surgery have also had an important impact on improvements to the quality of life, and the functions of speech, mastication and swallowing in sufferers. Oral Cancer reviews all the research, clinical and rehabilitation aspects of the treatment of the orofacial cancer patient. Expert guidance is given on appropriate techniques in reconstructive surgery, as well as the latest developments in osseointegrated facial prostheses and speech therapy. This textbook will be of significant value to head and neck surgeons, maxillofacial surgeons, otolarygologists and plastic surgeons involved in oncologic surgery. Oral surgeons, dentists and other members of a dental team who provide care to patients with oral cancer will also find Oral Cancer useful.
